The Little League Mom of the Year Award was established in 1991 as a symbolic form of recognition and tribute to the millions of mothers in communities around the globe who contribute their time and effort to the Little League program.
Each year Little Leaguers compose an essay that explains why their mothers should be the official Little League Mom of the Year. From that group, one Little Leaguer’s mother is selected as the official Little League Mom of the Year.
More important than the recognition received by the Mom of the Year is the true appreciation for their mother each child develops as they list in their essays the special efforts she has made on their behalf. The Mom of the Year Award is presented during the Little League World Series held in August in South Williamsport, PA.
