At the conclusion of each championship season, the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League solicits nominations from the general membership for several postseason awards as designed by UEFL Rule 4-4. Pursuant to Rule, the results of this nomination and voting designate which umpires are to receive which awards. The Rule also specifies what points are awarded to each umpire for receipt of the various postseason awards. The following table portrays the historical record of UEFL Postseason Awards with links, where available, to the award announcement.
