The Minor League Baseball Yearly (MiLBY) Awards are given annually to the most outstanding players, teams, single-game performances, plays, moments, homers, and promotions of the year. Initiated by Minor League Baseball in 2005[1] as the "This Year in Minor League Baseball Awards", the awards were renamed the "MiLBY Awards" in 2008.[2] Baseball fans select the nominees for and winners of the awards, via the online voting system on MiLB.com, the official website of Minor League Baseball.
