NEW YORK (AP) - Michael Weiner, the players' union head who died from a brain tumor in November, will be honored by the Baseball Assistance Team during its annual dinner next Tuesday.
Weiner will be given a lifetime achievement award that will be accepted by his widow, Diane Margolin.
Former NL MVP Jimmy Rollins will be given the Big B.A.T./Frank Slocum Award for his financial support and generosity to the community, the organization said Thursday. Seven-time All-Star Michael Young will be presented with the Bart Giamatti Award for best exemplifying the compassion demonstrated by the late commissioner, who died in 1989.
Current Commissioner Bud Selig will receive the first Commissioner Bud Selig Leadership Award.
