Trout or Cabrera? Who’s The American League MVP? [POLL]
Millville’s Mike Trout certainly will be awarded the American League Rookie Of The Year trophy. Does he also deserve the award for Most Valuable Player? We need your vote!
Trout, of the Los Angeles Angels, had a phenomenal year. Despite not being called up until twenty games into the season, Trout led the majors in runs scored (129), and stolen bases (49). He was second in batting average (.326). He’s the first player in Major League history to hit at least 30 homers (he had 30), steal at least 45 bases, and score at least 125 runs in a season. In History – and, he missed the first twenty games of the season!
Meanwhile, Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers had quite a year, leading the league in batting average (.330), home runs (44), and RBIs (139). He’s the first Triple Crown winner in 45 years.
