Aaron Judge, a home run hitter for the Major League Baseball’s New York Yankees, was selected as the winner of the 2023 Roberto Clemente Award.
The Clemente Award, presented by the MLB Commissioner’s Office, is given to a player who has enhanced the토스카지노 주소 reputation of the Major League Baseball through exemplary behavior as well as various charitable volunteer activities in the local community.
When it was established in 1971, it was awarded under the name ‘Commissioner’s Award’.
Then, in December 1972, the name of the award was changed to honor the slugger Roberto Clemente, who died in a plane crash while carrying relief supplies to help Nicaragua after an earthquake.
Judge, who founded the ‘All Rise Foundation’ in 2018, helped young people in the Broncos area of New York and also carried out various volunteer activities in his hometown of Fresno County, California.
Judge is the fourth Yankees player to receive this award, following Ron Guidry in 1984, Don Baylor in 1985, and Derek Jeter in 2009.
The Major League Baseball office will hold an awards ceremony during Game 3 of the World Series held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.
Judge, who hit 62 home runs last year and broke the record for most home runs in an American League (AL) season (61) set by Roger Maris in 1961 for the first time in 61 years, became eligible as a free agent after the season and signed a contract with the Yankees for a total of 300 million won. He signed a nine-year contract worth $60 million.
This year, he suffered a toe injury in early June and missed nearly two months, but played well with a batting average of 0.267, 37 home runs, and 75 RBI.
