The process continues.

We here are 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.

Now it is time for our 2021 positional awards.

We will be awarding a positional player of the year, but not only that, offer up the runner-up and second runner-up, meaning that we will have First, Second and Third All-MLB players.

Let’s work our way around the diamond and award the best of the best in Baseball!

*Please note that to qualify, a player must appear in that position at least 50% of the time.

This was the second time that Ramirez had a 35 HR/100 RBI season, and it was the third time that he batted over .300 in RISP.  Ramirez, who led the American League in Power-Speed # in 2018 and 2020, was second this year, and was sixth in OPS.
