With the Angels baseball season officially over, it’s time to see what awards the MVP center fielder is being nominated for. Folks this is a big one. Mike Trout is being nominated for the Hank Aaron Award.

The Hank Aaron Award was introduced in 1999 to honor the 25th Anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth’s all-time home run record, and, at that time, was the first major award introduced by MLB in more than 25 years.

If you remember, Trout won the award back in the 2014 season. He also has another great shot at winning it for the second time in his career because of his style of play and interactions of his loyal fans. The MLB will be simply different without a Mike Trout playing.

His numbers across the board were speechless .315/.441/.550 . These numbers should be worthy of an MVP award, however, Trout may be ‘left’ with the Hank Aaron award.

The award highlights the best offensive player in the conference. Trout being the favorite to win the AL. You can vote at mlb.com, and the voting ends October 14.
