Myers Park Trinity Little League has a long tradition of rewarding teams and individual players who exemplified great sportsmanship as well as achieved athletic excellence on the field.  Below is a list of the awards handed out at the 2016 Closing Ceremonies.


Hasty Award (ML)

The Hasty Award recognizes the major league team whose players, coaches and fans exemplify the Little League guiding principles of sportsmanship and teamwork.  The winning team is selected by a vote of the Major League coaches. This Award is dedicated to the memory of Judge Fred Hasty, who served as an assistant coach of the Harry & Bryant team for 25 years and demonstrated a special commitment to Little League Baseball and to each of his players

The 2016 winner of the Hasty Award was The Keith Corporation.

The 2017 winner of the Hasty Award was Cameron Harris Insurance.


Stone Barnett Award (NL)

The Stone Barnett Award is named in honor and memory of Stone Barnett, a long-time player, coach and volunteer in the league, whose family has been deeply involved in the league since Stoney was a young boy.  This place was a second home to him and was an important part of his life.  The Award was established in 2007 by the Myers Park Trinity Board and Stone’s family to honor the National League team whose players, coaches and fans exemplify all that Stone believed was right about Little League—good sportsmanship, effort, teamwork, positive attitude and enthusiasm.  Stone and his friend and fellow coach Travis McCollum worked to instill these values in their players.

The 2016 winner of the Stone Barnett Award was Nakatos Japanese Steakhouse - Coach Jordan Keysor.

The 2017 winner of the Stone Barnett Award was Nothwestern Mutual - Coach Brian Rubins


Sean Schultz Award (AL)

The Sean Schultz Award recognizes the American League team whose players, coaches and fans exemplify the Little League guiding principles of sportsmanship and teamwork.  The winning team is selected by a vote of the American League coaches. This Award is dedicated to the memory of Sean Schultz.  Sean loved baseball and coaching at MPTLL.  Over several years, Coach Schultz coached TB, in the AL and in the NL.  Sean lost his life way too soon, but did so doing what he loved, coaching.

The 2016 winner of the Sean Schultz Award was Colson Keane - Coach Matt Poindexter.

The 2017 winner of the Sean Schultz Award was Sterling Capital Funds - Coach Matt Poindexter


Billy Rice Award

Billy Rice was a talented and enthusiastic baseball player in the league from 1987 to 1995.  He was a starting pitcher for the 1993 All Star team and a recipient of the Johnnie Nivens Award.  The Billy Rice Award was created shortly after Billy’s death in 1997 to preserve the memory of this outstanding young man for future generations of little leaguers. The Awards recognize one player from each of the Major League and the National League, who by their enthusiasm, energy level, positive attitude and commitment exhibit a true love for the game of baseball, as personified by Billy Rice.
