Hutch Award Newsbeat

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

A’s Stephen Piscotty, Giants’ Buster Posey nominated for Hutch Award

When you think of a fiery competitor, who comes to mind? Well, there’s a Major League Baseball honor dedicated to just that: The Hutch Award.

The Hutch Award, named after the late Fred “Hutch” Hutchinson. is given annually to an active MLB player who “best exemplifies the fighting spirit and competitive desire.” Much like Hutch himself, who died from cancer in 1964.

Two Bay Area ballplayers have been nominated for the award: A’s Stephen Piscotty and Giants’ Buster Posey

There isn’t a rule in the books that says we can’t discuss awards this early in the season!
