The Players' Choice Awards - 2016

November 1, 2016


Welcome to the second annual PWBL "Players' Choice Awards". Due to the warm reception that this process, and the resulting awards plaques themselves, received at the end of last season, the awards are being brought back again. As everyone knows, the Rookie of the Year Award, the Cy Young Award, and the League MVP Award are all chosen by the team owners. The Batting Champion and the Home Run Champion are mathematically determined. But what about the subjective observations that we all make each week, simply as league players, about our co-competitors around the fields at Cottage Lane? We, as Palisades players, all witness great play throughout the year, and it seems like we, the players, should have an informal way of acknowledging which players are the "best" in certain ways around the diamond. With that in mind, here are nominees for the very same categories that kicked-off last years first ever "Players' Choice Awards". The League would like to acknowledge that the voting process was a success last fall, so PLEASE be classy and make your selections only once if you are an active player, or a player/fan who has faced or witnessed these players in past years. The nominees in each category are arranged in completely random order to maintain balance.


Results will be listed once the votes are all in, probably within about the next 15 days or so. As we did last fall, the winner in each category will receive a "Players' Choice Award" plaque at Awards Night on November 26th.
