Year  Award
1970  The Sporting News - All-American - Honorable Mention
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1983
A Virginian who transferred to Florida State from Manatee Junior College, John Grubb starred on the Seminoles' greatest team, the 1970 runner-ups. Grubb was a steady Seminole batting and fielding leader through that 49-9 season. He hit .303 during the regular season, played well in the outfield and was named to the all-tournament squad at the Florida State Invitational. In the 1970 College World Series, Grubb led the Tribe at the plate and was one of two Seminoles to be named to the All-Series team. At season's end John Grubb was named honorable mention All-American.

Two years after he left Seminole Field, Grubb had made the majors and he has been there ever since. First with the San Diego and later with Cleveland and Texas, he has been a steady outfielder, a solid hitter and member of the American League All-Star team. As collegian and professional, John Grubb represents the best in the Seminole baseball tradition.
