In the ongoing procession of post-season award announcements, the FanSided Network has tabulated the ballots and have named the Royals Eric Hosmer Rookie of the Year.
Previously this week, the Baseball Bloggers Alliance announced the Hosmer and Tampa’s Jeremy Hellickson tied for the honor in the American League. Hellickson finished second in voting among FanSided baseball writers.
There was a point where Hosmer was chasing high heat and didn’t look at all like a Rookie of the Year candidate. A scorching second half has given him some momentum as the official announcement from the Baseball Writers Association of America nears. The BBWAA will announce the winners of the Jackie Robinson Award on November 14.
