Adding another accolade to his mantle, Giants Catcher and San Francisco's boyfriend Buster Posey was voted the National League's Most Valuable Player by a landslide today.
As if the guy couldn't get any more lovable, Posey accepted the honor at the school where his mom teaches while holding one of his twin daughters. With his wife next to him holding their other daughter, Posey said, "I’m very fortunate it’s a great environment. We’ve seen past couple of years how passionate the fans are. I couldn’t be more honored to have my name alongside the past players who won the honor.”
Posey is the 10th player in San Francisco Giants history to win the honor. He is also the first catcher to win since Johnny Bench, who has a great baseball name, won in 1972.
Posey received 27 out of 32 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America. The next closest finisher was Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers, who managed to nab only three first-place votes.
