Tips for making a positive impact on your Little League community, according to the 2023 Coach of the Year recipients

(BPT) – Just in time for the Little League® World Series, Lance Sandwich Crackers and Positive Coaching Alliance are celebrating coaches who inspire players and give back to their communities.

Little League teaches children so much more than the love of the game, from sportsmanship to instilling leadership, having fun, and fostering community spirit. To celebrate all the ways Little League coaches help our kids and communities, Lance® — the Official Snack of Little League Baseball and Softball — and Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) are honoring coaches with the 2023 Little League Coach of the Year Award.

After a record-breaking number of submissions, a panel of judges from Lance, PCA, Little League, former Coach of the Year winners, and former MLB player and Little Leaguer®, Todd Frazier, has identified two incredible individuals as the 2023 Little League Coaches of the Year.

“As a professional athlete, I know firsthand the immense influence coaches have on a player’s development. That’s why I’m honored to partner with Lance and PCA to celebrate Little League coaches with the 2023 Coach of the Year Award,” said Todd Frazier, former Little League and MLB player. “From my Little League days to the majors, I had coaches who not only believed in me but pushed me to be the best version of myself, both on and off the field. The Coach of the Year award is an opportunity to give back to the Little League community and inspire the next generation of coaches.”
