Vote Tulowitzki for Roberto Clemente Award

Every year, each of the thirty Major League Baseball clubs nominates one player for the Roberto Clemente Award. The award is considered one of the most prestigious in baseball, and is based not on performance at the plate or on the mound, but instead in the humanitarian field. Clemente is celebrated as one of baseball's greatest humanitarians, as he lost his life in an untimely plane crash while delivering aide to Earthquake survivors in Nicaragua in 1972.

This year, the Colorado Rockies have chosen former Dirtbag Troy Tulowitzki as their Roberto Clemente award nominee. Tulo's on the field performance this season was one to remember, in September he posted numbers that had rarely been approached in the final month of the regular season- all the while helping to raise money for children's charities including The Special Olympics and The Children's Hospital. Tulowitzki has raised over $25,000 for these charities this season, and plans to do more in the future to continue to help children and raise awareness for these important causes.

Tulowitzki continually shows that community spirit does not end with the Dirtbags or the Rockies, but instead by making a difference and reaching out to those in need. Help LBSU and Tulo's fans everywhere by voting for him as the fans' choice for the 2010 Roberto Clemente award by clicking here and casting your vote before October 9, 2010.
