Rookie of the Year


Rookie of the Year

Rookie of the Year (dt. Neuling des Jahres, zu Rookie) ist ein Titel für den besten Sportler, der seine erste Profi-Saison bestreitet. Die Auszeichnung wird in vielen nordamerikanischen Profiligen wie der Major League Baseball (MLB - der MLB Rookie of the Year Award), der National Basketball Association (NBA - der NBA Rookie of the Year Award), der National Hockey League (NHL - die Calder Memorial Trophy), der Major League Soccer (MLS - der MLS Rookie of the Year Award) und der National Football League (NFL - NFL Rookie of the Year) vergeben.

In der NFL werden jedes Jahr der beste offensive und der beste defensive Neuzugang des Jahres ausgezeichnet. Bis 1996 fanden zudem getrennte Wahlen in der National Football Conference und der American Football Conference statt.

Auch viele Motorsportklassen, vor allem nordamerikanische, verleihen einen Rookie-of-the-Year-Titel, wie zum Beispiel die IndyCar Series und die NASCAR in all ihren Serien mit dem NASCAR Rookie of the Year Award. Auch in der MotoGP, der Königsklasse des Motorradrennsports, wird jährlich diese Auszeichnung vergeben.

Im professionellen europäischen Golfsport vergibt die European Tour den Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award an den besten Neuling des Jahres.
