City of Akron Press Release
Published: 11-06-2015

Akron area residents are not the only people taking notice of the hard work of Akron RubberDucks owner Ken Babby, General Manager Jim Pfander, and their staff.

Minor League Baseball announced that the Akron RubberDucks are the recipients of the 2015 Larry MacPhail Award, symbolic of the top promotional team in the country.
This is the first time Akron has won the award and just the sixth time for the Eastern League in its 50 year history.

RubberDucks owner Ken Babby said: “This is an extremely prestigious award and a true honor to be selected from among more than 160 Minor League Baseball teams.”  He went on to give credit to the Akron fans and the organization’s desire “to make Canal Park the epicenter of affordable family fun in Northeast Ohio.”

Babby promised a number of new and creative promotions as well as fun-filled experiences at Canal Park when the Akron RubberDucks kick off the 2016 season next April 14th.  The RubberDucks are the Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.
