Get out and vote: Roberto Clemente Award

Public voting for the Roberto Clemente is now open via mlb.com.

While this isn’t is the most recognized award, it is my favorite. Roberto Clemente is my favorite athlete, and person, that I have had the pleasure to read, hear, and learn about. Not only was he a fantastic baseball player, but he was an active humanitarian as well.

So I just want to get the word out about the award so a deserving candidate can be honored by the legacy of the great Roberto Clemente. The award is given to the player who, “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team”.

Personally, I voted for Curtis Granderson. I read about his charities while he played in Detroit, and he has continued to be a fantastic role model for kids in New York.
