The Thurman Munson Award is given to sports stars who have contributed on and off the field. Community service and her efforts to improve sports are the main criteria for evaluation. It was created in memory of New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson, who passed away in an unfortunate accident in 1979. Until last year, it raised more than $19 million for children with developmental disabilities.
Sorenstam was the first golfer to receive the award. This year, along with Sorenstam, New York Mets manager Buck Showalter, Brandon Nemo, and Kyle Higashioka were selected as recipients.
“It is special for a female golfer to receive an award in the name of a baseball player along with others in baseball,” said Sorenstam. “It is an honor to think that she has been recognized for her efforts to improve the sport.”
