Daniel Murphy is the Mets’ recipient of the MLBPAA Heart & Hustle Award, the league announced Tuesday (MLB.com, July 22).
The players’ association, including former and active players, vote on an honoree for each club who “demonstrates a passion for the game of baseball and best embodies the values, spirit and traditions of the game,” according to MLB.com.
A final winner is chosen from each of the 30 honorees as the overall recipient of the award.
Murphy was the Mets’ winner last year as well.
The overall award went to Dustin Pedroia in 2013.
