The Major League leading home run team — along with every other team — has three nominations for the Hank Aaron Award. Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira have been nominated from the Yankees.
Just for laughs, the Mets are a different story. After looking at what the Mets have to offer, it makes you feel kind of proud to have those three nominated for the Yanks, doesn’t it?
The Hank Aaron Award, presented by Sharp, is presented annually to the best overall offensive performer in each league, with each club having three nominees. This is the seventh consecutive year that fans have had a voice in selecting the award winners.
So who will it be out of Yankee camp? All the homers make me want to go with Teixeira, but Jeter is having another one of those years. I think I’ll vote for Jete, just because he’s homegrown (and my favorite player).
