As Royals fans, witnessing Eric Hosmer‘s rookie season was exciting both in what he accomplished and in what it represents for the future of the organization.
Now, he deserves to be recognized for it.
Hosmer led all American League rookies with 153 base hits and his .799 OPS led all major league rookies with more than 400 plate appearances. On the year, he hit .293/.334/.465 with 19 homers, 27 doubles, 78 RBI and 11 stolen bases. He also played solid defense all year (UZR be damned).
