MLB news and a “feel good story”

Buster Posey of the World Champion San Francisco Giants was named National League MVP.  He is the first catcher in seventy years to win the National League batting title.  This is a huge accomplishment for him coming back from the devastating injury he suffered last year.

Triple Crown Winner Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers was named American League MVP.

Cy Young Award Winners are David Price of Tampa Bay for the American League and R A Dickey of the New York Mets for the National League.  Dickey is 38 years old and is missing a ligament in his elbow.  He almost quit baseball two years ago but finding his excellent knuckleball saved him and prolonged his career.  He has just published his autobiography this year, Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball.  In his memoir, he reveals he was sexually abused as a child and contemplated suicide in his 30’s.  Quite a comeback.  This is a “feel good story” for sure!!
