Yankees’ Aaron Judge voted player of the year by fellow major leaguers


Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge was voted player of the year and the American League outstanding player by fellow major leaguers in the annual Players Choice Awards from the Major League Baseball Players Association. Judge set an American League record with 62 homers, breaking the previous mark of 61 set by New York’s Roger Maris in 1961. St. Louis first baseman Paul Goldschmidt was voted National League outstanding player, the union said Friday. Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor, a member of the union’s eight-man executive subcommittee that was heavily involved in labor negotiations, was selected Marvin Miller man of the year, given to a player whose leadership inspires others.
