Paul Owens Award

The Best Philadelphia Phillies Minor League Player & Pitcher

The Paul Owens Award was instituted in 1986, and is named for the late Paul Owens, who spent 48 years in the Phillies organization as a scout, farm director, general manager, manager and senior advisor.

Each year, the Philadelphia Phillies recognize the organization's top minor league player and pitcher, awarding both of them the Paul Owens Award.

"It's unbelievable to be in a moment like this. Right now, I'm just really excited. With the talented group of guys we've got in this clubhouse, it's a really exciting time, and I think there's something special going on. For me it's a lot of excitement to get up to Philly and get this thing started." - Scott Kingery (Todd Zolecki, 03/26/2018, Phils ink Kingery to unprecedented 6-year deal , Source )

Names that appear on the Paul Owns Award page in grey did not make it to the Major League level, with any franchise at any time.
Only seven left-handed pitchers have won a Paul Owens Award, the rest were all right handed. A positional breakdown of non-pitchers who have won a Paul Owens Award: thirteen outfielders, six catchers, five first basemen, four second basemen, four shortstops, three third basemen, and two multi-position players.
Did you know that Jeff Grotewold was the first catcher to be named the best minor league player in the Phillies organization? How about Andy Carter being the first left-handed twirler to be acknowledged as the best pitcher in their farm system?
