The Rookie of the Year Award is an annual award given to the player in each of the Metropolitan League (ML) and the Lake League (LL) selected as the most outstanding rookie player.

Both pitchers and position players qualify. In the Bull League, a rookie must have no more than one year of service, currently defined as 100 days in the major level.

Two players who have won Rookie of the Year Awards have gone on to enter the Bull League Hall of Fame: third baseman Always Rosy, who won the award in 1995 with the San Diego Seagulls and was inducted in 2016, and catcher Eric Tessier, who won it in 2000 with the Toronto Ducks and was inducted in 2019.
