SBN Awards: Trout and Posey Win Player of the Year Honors

Christian Petersen

Millville kid Mike Trout added to his collection, claiming the SBN Player of the Year Award. The Angels outfielder grabbed 22 of 26 first place votes. Catcher Buster Posey of the World Champion Giants picked up National League honors.

Angels outfielder and Millville, New Jersey native Mike Trout and Giants catcher Buster Posey have won the SBN Player of the Year Awards for 2012.

Trout received 22 first place votes, easily beating runner up and American League Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera, who picked up the other four first place votes.

Posey picked up 26 first place votes, followed by Ryan Braun with seven, and Andrew McCutchen with two.

Catcher Carlos Ruiz was the only Phillies player to appear on any ballot, scoring a fifth place vote and a seventh place vote. I wonder who put him on their ballots...
