Votto named Reds’ nominee for 2015 Hank Aaron Award

CINCINNATI — Major League Baseball and MLB Advanced Media announced that first baseman Joey Votto has been named the Cincinnati Reds’ nominee for the 2015 Hank Aaron Award.

Fans can vote for the 2015 Hank Aaron Award exclusively online at MLB.com and the 30 Club sites. For the sixth straight year, a special panel of Hall of Fame players led by Hank Aaron will join fans in voting for the award, which is officially sanctioned by Major League Baseball and has recognized the most outstanding offensive performer in each League since it was established in 1999.

Votto, 32, hit .314 with 33 doubles, 29 HR and 80 RBI while leading the National League in walks for the fourth time in 5 seasons. He established single-season modern franchise records for walks (143), number of times reaching base at least twice (107) and number of times reaching base safely via hit, walk or HBP (319). From August 11-October 2 Votto reached base safely in 48 consecutive games, tying Pete Rose’s 1978 single-season franchise record and the longest single-season on-base streak by any player since Kevin Millar’s 52-game streak in 2007. Votto won the Hank Award Award in 2010, when he also was named the NL’s Most Valuable Player.

Continuing through October 11th, fans will have the opportunity to select one American League and one National League winner from a list comprising of one finalist per Club. The winners of the 2015 Hank Aaron Award will be announced during the 2015 World Series.
