Sandy Koufax Award
The Sandy Koufax Award is given annually to the best pitchers in the Bull League, one each for the American Eagle League (AEL) and the Lake League (LL). The award is named after Sandy Koufax, who was the first pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in multiple years, and who is considered by many to be one of the greatest left-handed pitchers to play professional baseball.
