Cape Elizabeth Little League

Taylor Emmons Award

Taylor grew up in Cape Elizabeth and played in the Cape Elizabeth Little League.  He loved the game of baseball, and when weather permitted he could always be found at one of the local fields. In order to support Taylor’s love of the game, his parents moved to Florida so that Taylor could be on the diamond year-round. Taylor is remembered by his Little League coaches as someone with a strong commitment for the game who displayed good sportsmanship, and who always had a big smile on his face when he was at the field. He is also remembered for being a supportive teammate, even when things might not be going so well on the field.

In memory of Taylor, the Cape Elizabeth Little League annually recognized one 12 year-old boy and one 12 year-old girl each year who showed the following attributes:

  • Love of the game
  • Commitment to the game
  • Positive and supportive to teammates
  • Good sportsmanship
  • Positive role model

The award was presented annually to each recipient at the graduation ceremony at the end of the Family Fun Day parade. A plaque with the award recipients was displayed in a case at Community Services.
