Alonso, Álvarez honored as top rookies by Baseball Digest

NEW YORK (AP) — Mets first baseman Pete Alonso and Houston Astros slugger Yordan Álvarez have been picked as this year’s top rookies by Baseball Digest.

Alonso was a unanimous choice in the National League, and Álvarez received six of seven first-place votes to take the AL honor. The other one went to Eloy Jiménez of the Chicago White Sox.

Alonso set a rookie record with 53 home runs for New York, becoming the first rookie to lead the majors outright in homers. He finished the season with 120 RBIs and a .941 OPS.

Baseball Digest?

can this still exist?

got this monthly small mag when I was a kid. one of my favorite stories: "Why Riggs Stephenson Belongs in the Hall of Fame"

could be a collectible from those days - myopic views from top media types!

I also got Football, Basketball, Hockey, and for a short time Soccer Digest (Kyle Rote Jr. on the first cover, I have it here somewhere. some of them only printed 6 or 8 issues per year. the months-long lead time of course produced useless mags during the season. a couple in winter left just enough lag time to not be outdated before you read it).

then girls got in the mix, and my parents weren't paying for Gals Digest or anything similar so....
