Baseball Featured Player of the Year

BLITZ Baseball Player of the Year nominees

The stats don’t do justice, because hardly any team even got 50% of their schedule in. Dreams may have been put on hold, or thrashed altogether for some players, but it’s still worth giving props to these players who are up for Player of the Year honors. In most cases, coaches nominated the players listed. In a couple of cases, we made sure we included a player or two to ensure every team was represented in the event we didn’t receive a nomination.

WHAT’S NEXT? We’ll take our nominee group down to a finalist pool.

NEW FOR 2020: BLITZ will pick a finalist group, and then have another group for the “FAN VOTE – ONE MORE FINALIST” to be included for consideration for Player of the Year. Be on the lookout for that.
