• Cabrera, Posey winners of Hank Aaron Award

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Oct 28, 2012
    MLB also presented Cabrera and Buster Posey of the Giants with the Hank Aaron Award, which is described as going to the best hitter in each league. Moments later, Giants catcher Buster Posey was honored for being the National League's Hank Aaron Award winner. The look of the photo is deceiving; the Aaron award itself is not actually shaped like Hank Aaron or a podium. MLB commissioner Bud Selig presented Miguel Cabrera with an actual crown Saturday, recognizing the Triple Crown he won this season, and announced that the Tigers slugger won the American League's Hank Aaron Award. After Cabrera posed for pictures and made a statement, he went to get ready for Game 3. Cabrera could have put the crown on his head, but didn't, as Hall of Famer and former Triple Crown winner Frank Robinson and commissioner Bud Selig looked on. The golden crown itself includes a ball welded to the top, along with a sweet, olde English "D" the Tigers logo and diamond-shaped jewels across the front that might represent batting average, home runs and RBIs the statistical components of the Triple Crown.
