Major League Baseball Announces MVP Award Winners
Major League Baseball has wrapped up their end of the season award announcements with the recognition of the league's most valuable player awards. In the American League, the winner was outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Mike Trout. Trout received nineteen of a possible thirty first place votes. Trout now becomes just the second player in Major League Baseball history to win two Most Valuable Player Awards before his twenty seventh birthday. Since Trout has entered the league five years ago, he has yet to finish any lower than third in the voting for the league's Most Valuable Player award.
The National League award for Most Valuable Player was rewarded to Kris Bryant. Bryant was a key part following the regular season in helping lead the Chicago Cubs to their first World Series championship in one hundred and eight years. Bryant received twenty nine of a possible thirty first place votes. Bryant won the NL Rookie of the Year award last season.
