Inhaltsangabe: Joe DiMaggio captured the1941 American League MVP Award after his 56-game hitting streak made headlines much of the summer. Ted Williams, despite his .401 batting average, finished second. In 1998, Sammy Sosa beat out Mark McGwire for the National League’s award despite McGwire’s record-setting 70 home runs that season. On a handful of occasions, the voters gave the hardware to a pitcher, though pitchers have their own version of the MVP in the Cy Young Award.
The bestowing of the MVP award is one of the most anticipated announcements in major league baseball. Yet much controversy also shrouds this coveted title. What athletic characteristics, feats, records and statistics distinguish a player as an MVP award winner? How many players are in the running, and how is it decided which player will receive the distinction?
This biographical dictionary profiles every MVP ballplayer from 1931 to 2001, providing detailed statistics, personal background and career highlights. A summary of each general baseball season for both leagues is provided, and the other top four contenders for MVP that year are also listed with the number of votes each player received.
