Living Legend Award

An Honor Beyond Statistics

Living Legend Award

Who is that peeking from behind his impressive new piece of jewelry? That’s just Ernie Banks having some fun as our 2010 Living Legend honoree.

In 2007, the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory Living Legend Award was created to honor a person whose career in baseball, and life outside the game, have taken on legendary qualities by virtue of his talents, achievements and personal conduct. Beyond statistics, recipients of this award have demonstrated a mythic impact upon baseball and American culture.

Our Living Legend recipient receives a customized ring that highlights his career achievements. The festive celebration coincides with our annual live auction of fantastic baseball memorabilia every year, conducted by Hunt Auctions Inc. The event makes for a memorable and historic night!
