Baseball Award Ideas
End-of-season baseball awards are often awarded to Little Leaguers to motivate them and recognize progress.
Award Ideas for Players on a Little League Baseball Team
Awards could be related to performance or even effort. Coaches often prefer to find a reason to award each participant rather than award one or two kids only. Some kids are not naturally athletic and put a lot of effort into the game even though they don’t excel. Their effort should also be acknowledged. With a little bit of effort, you can find an award that acknowledges something that each child excelled at. It will make everyone feel special and motivate them to continue trying next season.
What awards can be given for baseball?
- Most Valuable Player (MVP) – why not let the team vote for the MVP (this will also prevent other players feeling like they should have been the recipients)
- Best Hitter
- Highest Batting Average
- Most Improved
- Great Attitude
- Best Effort
- Most Helpful
- Versatile Player
- Most Enthusiastic
- Most Patient Player
- Best Teammate
- Team Player
- Best Sport
- Always Puts the Team First
- Most Dedicated Player
- Excellent Potential (for players who haven’t put any effort into the game but are capable of so much)
- Most stolen bases
- Runs batted in
- Home runs
- Triples, doubles or singles
- Pitching Awards: most wins, strikeouts, saves, most valuable pitcher
- Defense Awards – “Gold Glove Award” for the best defensive player at every position – Catcher, First Base, Second Base, Shortstop, Third Base, Left Field, Center Field, Right Field
What kinds of awards can you give for baseball?
Kids (and adults) love to receive trophies. They get to show them off and it makes them feel really proud. Trophies come in hundreds of shapes and sizes. They are not cheap and not everyone has the budget to purchase them. If you do, they are great motivators. Sometimes you can find small trophies for a few dollars each.
These are free and we have a good selection available on this site. You can print one for each player. We have certificates that are specifically for baseball but you can use our generic certificate templates too. Coaches often choose to award one or two trophies and give all players an award certificate.
You could award baseballs, jerseys or caps. If you award baseballs you could get all the players in the team to sign it. It will be great memorabilia. You might find a local sports store which is interested in giving free equipment in return for advertising or sponsorship. This would keep costs down and would definitely be appreciated by participants.
How to Customize the Baseball Printables
You can also add an image or logo to the certificates. For example, if your club has a logo, you can add it to the template before you print. You can also add a photo of the recipient or of the entire team.
To add an image click on “customize” and then on the image icon. You can drag the image to make it smaller or larger.
