Braun & Pedroia Named Rookies Of The Year

MLB have named Milwaukee Brewers Ryan Braun third baseman the National League Rookie of the Year. They also named Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia as the American League Rookie of the year. Pedroia, of course was a member of the team that won the 2007 World Series.
Braun won the award in the closest vote ever as he beat out Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki by just 2 votes 128-126. Braun hit .324 with 34 home runs, and a .623 slugging percentage. He lead all rookies in home runs.
Pedroia bounced back from a terrible month of April to win the award. He hit an anemic .182 in April but finished the campaign with a .317 batting average. Pedroia accumulated 132 votes, he beat out Tampa Bay Devil Rays rightfielder Delmon Young. Pedroia won by a much larger margin than his N.L. counterpart, getting 132 votes to Young's 56.
