Montgomery to receive Executive Leadership Award

PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies chairman David Montgomery will be honored this month by the Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation.

Montgomery will receive the Allan H. "Bud" Selig Executive Leadership Award, which will be presented by Selig, at the 14th annual "In the Spirit of the Game" Spectacular in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Jan. 14. The foundation has raised more than $1.7 million for scouts.

The Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation (PBSF) is a nonprofit organization established in 2003 to provide emergency resources through the awarding of grants to scouts (or their immediate family) whose circumstances have created a financial need.
