The 2010 baseball awards and accolades have been announced, and it was an impressive year for some Dirtbag Alums.
Evan Longoria and the Rays made it to the American League divisional round, where they fell to eventual AL champs the Texas Rangers. Longoria made it to the All Star game in Anaheim this summer, and his regular season performance at third base earned him his second Rawlings' Gold Glove- the award given to the best defensive player at each position in each league.
Troy Tulowitzki's club, the Colorado Rockies, didn't make the postseason, but Tulo was honored with multiple awards. Troy started out his season with a trip to the mid-summer's classic as well. Tulo not only won his first Gold Glove, but also took home his first Silver Slugger (awarded to the best hitting player at each position).
Jered Weaver, the Angels' ace was also elected to the All Star game this past season. Weaver was also the strike out king lead the league for the first time in his career.
Congratulations to these former Dirtbags as they continue to make LBSU proud!
