It’s MLB MVP trivia time, folks! Pull up a stool and grab a brew and get ready to impress all the barfolk watching the Colts and Jags who might not actually care about baseball anymore. It’s okay though. I understand. . Winter is not a baseball fan. Winter is cold and annoying and heartless like that. Keep nursing your beer and the sunshine and baby animals and baseball will be back again… someday.
All together, now:
I now affirm that baseball season will return. Baseball has not abandoned me. I will make it through this winter. Spring will come.
Very good. Moving on…
The Major League Baseball Most Valuable Player Award was first awarded in the year 1931 by the Baseball Writers Association of America. The voting for the award takes place before the postseason, but the winners are not announced until after the World Series.
There is one “winner” of the award from the National League and one winner from the American League. However, in 1979, there was a tie for the National League vote, and two players, Keith Hernandez of St. Louis, and Willie Stargell of Pittsburgh both received the honor of NL MVP.
