While dealing with negative behavior is part of sports administration, the EWBC strives to promote good sportsmanship and teamwork through proactive methods. To this end, the EWBC has created an annual sportsmanship award named after a former player who has moved on to a league in Northeastern Ohio. Heather Millar played in the league for over 15 years until 2021, and during her tenure she demonstrated great sportsmanship, love of the game, and promoted women’s baseball to anyone who would listen. Always positive, willing to help or learn, Heather was the consummate teammate.
The Heather Millar Sportsmanship Award will be given at the conclusion of the EWBC season; to the player who best embodies the EWBC spirit of competition and fair play. At the end of the annual season, each team the league will nominate 6 players for the award and then the players will vote for their choice
