2005 Baseball America Awards Gala

December 7, 2005

Baseball America’s fifth annual Awards Gala at the Winter Meetings in Dallas honors
all of the award winners selected throughout the year by Baseball America. It’s
the only event of its kind, bringing together people from all levels of the game–from
youth baseball to the major leagues and everywhere in between. In addition to
the winners featured in this issue, we honor winners of our other major awards

including our Minor League Player of the Year and Bob Freitas Awards, are presented
