Spring 2015 Season Awards

Written by - Posted 2015-06-17 21:30 in News

It’s time to select the 2015 Spring Season Award Nominees.

We give out four awards for full season play and an award for Manager of the Year and New Team of the Year. Unlike Player of the Week awards, these winners are kept secret and announced at our annual Champions Dinner.

Instead of the nominees being chosen by the Commissioner, all official roster players will get to vote to determine the winners from all eligible players (qualified in the states).

Once the nominees are selected, a final ballot will be held to select the winners.

VOTES ARE DUE SUNDAY JUNE 21, AT 11:59 PM

Each player in the league has been emailed instructions on completing their ballot, which is being hosted by BallotBin. Emails were sent to the address used when the player paid their registration fee. If you did not receive your email notification contact the Commissioner.

Voting for the awards is being done by ranked pairs voting.

VOTES ARE DUE SUNDAY JUNE 21, AT 11:59 PM

The awards to be voted on are:

  • Most Valuable Player – Wiffleball is an offensive sport, and the five nominees for this award are determined largely by offensive power, though voters should consider overall performance in making their selections.
  • Rookie of the Year – This award is for the Rookie player (defined as a player not eligible for nomination in any prior year’s stats) who had the most impact on the PWL. (3 nominees)
  • Cy Young Award – The Cy Young Award honors the finest pitching performance for the season.
  • Gold Glove Award – This award honors performances in the field. There is one award per position, Pitcher, Catcher and Fielder.
  • Manager of the Year – This award honors the best manager of the year.

Every player in the league who qualified for the minimum number of appearances is on the ballot to choose the winners. Ballots are initially sorted based on a single stat performance. MVP and Roookie of the Year by SLG. Cy Young by OBA. Gold Glove by RF. Manager and New Team are randomized by the system on each ballot.
