‘Yankees’ fourth player in history’ to win the Roberto Clemente Award

The winner of this season’s Roberto Clemente Award was Aaron Judge (New York Yankees).

Local media, including the American sports channel ESPN, all reported the news of Judge winning the Roberto Clemente Award on the 31st (Korean time). The awards ceremony was held prior to Game 3 of the World Series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers held on this day.

The Roberto Clemente Award was established in memory of Roberto Clemente, who died in a plane crash while carrying relief supplies to relieve earthquake damage in Nicaragua in 1972. Players (one from each of 30 clubs) who have done charity work and good deeds on and off the pitch will be nominated, and only one player will receive the honour.토토사이트

Judge founded the All Rise Foundation in 2018 to support youth in New York and San Joaquin and Fresno counties in California, near his home. He was also active in a variety of ways, including supporting students to attend the California Leadership Conference. Judge is the fourth Yankees player to receive the Roberto Clemente Award, following Ron Girdi in 1984, Don Baylor in 1985, and Derek Jeter in 2009.

Judge appeared in 157 games last year and recorded a batting average of 0.311 (177 hits in 570 at-bats), 62 home runs, and 131 RBI. He won AL MVP, breaking the American League (AL) record for most home runs (61) in a single season, which Roger Maris achieved in 1961, after 61 years. This season, suffering from minor injuries, he recorded a batting average of 0.267 (98 hits in 367 at-bats), 37 home runs, and 75 RBIs in 106 games.
