MLB has a Man of the Year award that recognizing outstanding achievements OFF the field. Nominees are listed in this article:
The article explains the achievements and community services supported by the players. Every team has submitted one nomination. The public then selects one player from every division (AL/NL East/West/Central) and the winning players go on to a vote by the MLB players.
I don't know if every vote sends a message to the players and the league that the fans care about charitable contributions, but it makes me feel better that MLB recognizes that all people have a responsibility to the whole.
