This is Babe Ruth's 5th MMP award and 9th time on ballot. Only Mays and Bonds have more MMP awards (7).

This is Walter Johnson's 11th season on an MMP ballot. This ties Mathewson and is only behind Clemens (13).

Dazzy Vance is the pitching MMP. He's the earliest Dodger to win the award- and the only one to win one for Brooklyn. Drysdale, Koufax, Valenzuela, Hershiser, Kershaw and Greinke have all won one or more for the Los Angeles version.

Walter Johnson picks up his 9th AL pitching MMP award. This isn't the Big Train of old who routinely finished in the top three but the respectable 7th place showing nabs Johnson his first award since 1919.

Rogers Hornsby is the NL MMP, reclaiming the award a year after relinquishing it to Dolf Luque. This is Hornsby's 4th NL MMP and his 7th NL position player MMP.

Oscar Charleston won his 3rd Negro League MMP. The Big O likes even numbered years, winning in 1920, '22 and '24.
