Pedroia is Named AL Most Valuable Player
November 18, 2008 - Are you considering one of our baseball tours to the East Coast next 2009 season? Well, if not you might now...Dustin Pedroia was named the AL MVP. The second baseman for the Red Sox joins Cal Ripken Jr. and Ryan Howard as the only players to win the Rookie of the Year and MVP in consecutive years.
Pedroia is the first second baseman to win the AL MVP since Nellie Fox of the White Sox in 1959. Also, for Pedoia's great performance in 2008, he received a Gold Glove Award, a spot on the American League's Silver Slugger team and now MVP.
Pedroia has an infections enthusiasm that has earned him the rare ability to be considered a team leader at the age of 25. But as much as he said in the clubhouse and the dugout, his bat could have done all the talking. His 54 doubles led the Majors. He led the AL in runs and multi-hit games.
So, whether you choose East Coast 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or the Big Apple trip you'll be sure to see Pedroia in action!
