In 2007, the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory Living Legend Award was created — honoring a person whose career in baseball, and life outside the game, have taken on legendary qualities; recognizing a triple threat of talents, achievement, and personal conduct. Beyond statistics, recipients of this award have demonstrated an exceptional impact, shaping baseball and American culture as we know it today.
Our Living Legend recipient receives a customized ring, highlighting his pivotal career achievements. The festive celebration coincides with our annual live auction of fantastic baseball memorabilia every year, conducted by Hunt Auctions Inc. It's no wonder that this event makes for such a memorable and historic night!
