Baseball Manitoba is proud to present its 2019 Awards Banquet honoring our best coaches, officials, players, teams, volunteers, and honorary members for their performances and/or contributions to the sport of baseball. We invite all coaches, umpires, league presidents, regional directors, and executive members to nominate those individuals who deserve recognition for their performance over the past year. All nominees must be affiliated with the Baseball Manitoba.
The Awards Committee reviews the applications and selects the most deserving nominee in each category. There is no limit on the number of times an individual can be nominated. The more information the committee receives, the better they can assess your nominee. Supporting letters from minor ball associations and club members are helpful to the committee. Clubs submitting applications are encouraged to add any extra biographical information on separate documents. Any member of the Baseball Manitoba may submit nominations.
