Each award has nominees and a winner in both the American League and National League.

Today, we focus on the final award, the Stan Musial Award, which goes to the top player in each league.

Stan Musial Award (Top Player):

American League:

Jose Bautista (TOR) **WINNER**

Note: Bautista is a leader on the field and in the club house. His ability to take control of a game or take the reins of a team are incredible and truly make him the best baseball player in the American League.

National League:

Matt Kemp (LAD) **WINNER** (LAD) **WINNER**

Note: Kemp was 1 HR shy of a 40-40 season. Throw in a .324 BA, 115 R and 126 RBI and you have yourself the best player in the National League. No questions asked.
