Congrats to Curtis Granderson, recipient of the 2016 Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award!
It is an impressive award to receive. First you have to be nominated by your teammates to represent your organization. Then the fans get to vote on the 30 nominees, reducing the field to one from each division. Then the MLB makes the final selection, and there is only a single winner each year.
The Marvin Miller award is given annually to the player “whose on-field performance and contributions to his community inspire others to higher levels of achievement.”
Notable is that this is the 2nd time Granderson has received the honor. He also was selected back in 2009 as a member of the Detroit Tigers.
