Player Awards

The Best of the Best

Player Awards

These three significant awards honor the best of the best in different ways for different achievements.

Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory presents its Living Legend Award every year with a festive celebration. Honorees have included Ken Griffey Jr, Cal Ripken Jr, and Hank Aaron, who is shown here flashing his Living Legend ring bling.

Louisville Slugger’s Silver Bat Award has gone to the top hitter in each league since 1949. Jackie Robinson was one of the inaugural winners.


And the Silver Slugger Team Award started in 1980 as a way to recognize the top hitters at each field position.
