Major League Baseball’s batting champions Miguel Cabrera and Buster Posey won the big leagues top honors today.
Cabrera took home the American League Most Valuable Player award after the Tigers third baseman hit .330 with 44 homers and 139 RBIs to become the first Triple Crown winner since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Cabrera also led the league with a .606 slugging percentage for the AL champion Tigers.
Cabrera edged out sensational rookie Mike Trout of the Anaheim Angels for the award.
Not surprisingly, San Francisco's Buster Posey claimed National League MVP honors, coming back from injury to become the first catcher to win the league's batting title in 70 seasons while also helping the Giants win their second Championship in three seasons.
