The process continues.
We here are Notinhalloffame.com have plans to create our own set of post-season awards, which we will look back and retroactively present from 1901 on. That will take a while, but it has never stopped us before!
Our awards are not be league specific.
The first award that we will be giving out is the most important, the MVP, and who else could it be? It is Los Angeles Angels, Pitcher and Designated Hitter, Shohei Ohtani, who was also the winner of the inaugural NIHOF Baseball Cup.
Not since Babe Ruth, have we ever seen a dominant hitter who was an upper-echelon Pitcher. On the mound, Ohtani was the ace of the Angels staff, posting a 9-2 record with a 3.18 ERA, 156 Strikeouts and a WHIP of 1.090 over 130.1 Innings.
Ohtani’s bat was nothing short of electric in 2021. The native of Japan smacked 46 Home Runs, 100 RBI, and had a Slash Line of .257/.372/.592. He led the American League in Triples (8) and Power/Speed # (33.2), while also finishing first in the AL in bWAR (9.0) and Win Probability Added (5.1).
Congratulations to Shohei Ohtani for becoming our first ever announced MVP.
The trophy is in our home office of Speightstown, Barbados and is wating for you!
