It's now time to put the finishing touches on the 2012 MLB season as Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) begin presenting their 2012 end of the year awards. First up are the 2012 American League and National League Rookie of the Year.
In the AL, the BBWAA has selected Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout. And in the NL, they have selected Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper.
Trout took the AL by storm after being called up on April 28th. He played in 139 games, hitting .326 with 30 home runs, 83 RBIs and 49 stolen bases.
Ironically enough, Harper was also called up by the Nationals on April 28th. He played in 139 games, hitting .270 with 22 home runs, 59 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.
Next up in the BBWAA Awards will be the AL and NL Manager of the Year Awards which will be announced on Tuesday.
