The Sterling Awards are annual baseball awards given to the top players in the New York Mets organization at each level of the minor leagues.[1] The two principal awards are the Sterling Minor League Organizational Player of the Year and the Sterling Minor League Organizational Pitcher of the Year.[1] Nine additional awards are given to the most valuable player on each of the Mets-affiliated teams in Minor League Baseball (MiLB).[1] The award was originally called the Doubleday Award in honor of former Mets co-owner Nelson Doubleday, Jr.. When Doubleday sold his shares of the team to fellow co-owner Fred Wilpon, the name of the award was changed to the Sterling Award.
