Tommy Hanson Named AFL MVP, First Pitcher to Receive Award

New, comments

The Atlanta Braves top pitching prospect, Tommy Hanson, is the first pitcher to win the Arizona Fall League MVP award. I have a feeling that this won't be the last award Tommy Hanson will win:

For the first time in the league's history, a pitcher was the recipient of the award and it would be hard to argue that anyone other than Braves right-hander Tommy Hanson should have gotten it.

"It's definitely an honor especially with the other guys in the running," said Hanson, who was at the Winter Meetings to accept the award, "and especially being the first pitcher. It's pretty neat to be the first one."

Even more reason to keep him on the "untouchable prospect" list.
