This year, the Hank Aaron Award, which is presented to the top baseball players in both the National and American leagues during the fourth game of the World Series, was presented to Joey Votto and Jose Bautista.
The recognition award, which is given to the best hitters in each league, is named in honor of Hank Aaron winning the record of most career home runs from Babe Ruth. According to MSNBC, this year, Votto, of the Cincinnati Reds, hit a total of 37 home runs, while Bautista, of the Toronto Blue Jays, hit 54 home runs.
The Miami Herald reports that the recipients of the recognition awards are chosen by both fans and sports analysts, and is presented before the start of game 4 by Aaron himself.
