Players Choice Awards

Major Leaguers recognize the on-field and off-field achievements of their peers through the Players Trust’s Players Choice Awards program. The players annually honor the outstanding player, rookie, pitcher and comeback player in each league. Two additional awards which bestow top honors without regard to league are the Player of the Year and the Marvin Miller Man of the Year, named for the founding executive director of the MLBPA and given to the player whose excellence on and off the field most inspire others to higher levels of achievement. Players Choice Award winners designate charities to receive grants totaling $260,000 from the Players Trust.
