The ESPYs

The ESPYs gather top celebrities from sports and entertainment to commemorate the past year in sports by recognizing major sports achievements, reliving unforgettable moments and saluting the leading performers and performances. The 2009 ESPYs will recognize both sport-specific achievements, such as �Best MLB Player� and �Best WNBA Player,� and best-in-sport winners, such as �Best Team� or �Best Female Athlete� that pit nominees from different sports against each other. The ESPYs honor ESPN's commitment to The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a partnership launched with the late Jim Valvano at the inaugural ESPYs in 1993.

* The show will be taped Wednesday, July 15 from the Nokia Theatre at L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles

* For the second time in several years, a limited amount of ESPYs tickets are available for public purchase through www.ticketmaster.com.
