Note: Great news in the Cougars front office today as Amy Mason received a well-deserved nomination for Minor League Baseball’s Rawlings Woman Executive of the Year Award. As a staff, we’re thrilled for Amy. I would say that her humility is the one primary quality that is so evident in her work. She is typically the last person to embrace the spotlight and seek praise. That said, we’ll put the spotlight on her in this blog post. Great job, Amy!
The Kane County Cougars, in conjunction with the Midwest League office, have announced that Cougars Director of Ticket Services and Community Relations Amy Mason has been nominated for the Rawlings Woman Executive of the Year award. Mason is the Midwest League’s representative in that category, and was nominated by her peers from other front office staffs throughout the Midwest League.
Mason, along with nominees from other leagues throughout Minor League Baseball, will be submitted to the MiLB Awards Committee, and presented to the President and Executive Vice President of MiLB for an overall Rawlings Woman Executive of the Year Award winner, which “is presented to a woman who has made outstanding contributions to her club, her league or to baseball”, according to Minor League Baseball. The winner will be announced during this year’s Baseball Winter Meetings, to be held in Nashville this December.
Mason completed her 19th season with the Cougars in 2012. Among her many accomplishments as part of the Cougars front office, Mason has directed the Cougars’ Ozzie’s Reading Club, a reading incentive program for Chicagoland youth in which 2.1 million children have participated. Mason resides in DeKalb and graduated from Illinois State University, and also received her Master’s Degree in Sport Management from Western Illinois University.
