David Ortiz Up For American League Hank Aaron Award
Red Sox Designated Hitter David Ortiz has been nominated as the team's representative in the 2015 Hank Aaron Award voting. 'Big Papi' will be up against the likes of Mike Trout, Josh Donaldson, Chris Davis, Miguel Cabrera, and Nelson Cruz as the top offensive performer of the year. Trout and Giancarlo Stanton were the winners in 2014. Said MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, "Hank Aaron was a tremendous all-around offensive performer, and I believe that the diverse skills and competitive spirits demonstrated by these 30 players throughout the 2015 season have honored the Hall of Famer's enduring legacy."
