2019 PLAYERS

CHOICE AWARDS

WINNERS

Fellow players voted Granderson Marvin Miller Man of the Year for unprecedented fourth time; Trout named Player of the Year and AL Outstanding Player.

This year the Major League Baseball Players Association teamed up with 

The Players’ Tribune to produce a nine-piece video series to announce the Players Choice Award winners while also giving them the opportunity to discuss why they admire their fellow players.

The winners of the Marvin Miller Man of the Year and Player of the Year awards each receive a $50,000 grant from the Major League Baseball Players Trust to direct to charities of their choice, while the winners of the eight league-wide awards receive grants of $20,000 each.


All told, the 2019 Players Choice Award winners will designate charities to receive grants of nearly $260,000 from the Players Trust this year. Since 1992, the Players Trust has recognized the outstanding on and off field performances of Players Choice Awards winners by contributing more than $5 million to charities around the world.
