The VORG’s 2016 “Most Voweluable Player” Awards

The last of the 2016 season awards will be handed out Thursday afternoon, as the AL and NL MVPs are announced.  Here at the VORG, MVP stands for “Most Voweluable Player”, that being the player in each league with the highest percentage of vowels in their first and last names combined.

Over in the American League, Joe Mauer continued his dominance of this award, with at least a share of the top spot for the fourth straight season. This year he shares the award with perennial favorite Nori Aoki and newcomer Dae-ho Lee.
