|Major League Baseball today announced finalists for the 2022 Hank Aaron Award, an honor that recognizes the most outstanding regular season offensive performer in each League.
Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado have been nominated for their outstanding offensive performance during the 2022 regular season. Albert Pujols won the award in 2003 and 2009. Paul Goldschmidt won the award as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2013.
The Hank Aaron Award was introduced in 1999 to honor the 25th Anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth’s all-time home run record, and, at that time, was the first major award introduced by Major League Baseball in more than 25 years.
Voting is open now through Monday, October 24th.
