Evan Longoria received his first Gold Glove Award earlier this week, and now has been honored with a Silver Slugger Award.
What is a Silver Slugger Award? Its an award given to the best offensive player at each position from both leagues. What makes this award valid is the fact that its voted on by the managers and coaches (they may not vote for players on their own squad).
Longoria finished the 2009 campaign with 113 RBI and 33 homeruns (shhh, don't tell anyone how many GIDP's he had (27)).
Dirtbag is the youngest third baseman to receive the award, and the second Tampa Bay player (Carlos Pena).
So what's next, the Bronze Belt Buckle Award?
Congrats Mr D.!
