Baseball Awards

Every year, baseball hands out awards for the top pitcher, rookie and MVP. But what baseball player deserves an award for the wildest name? And what player needs a haircut and a little zit cream? These guys didn't hit the most homers or steal the most bases but they still deserve an award.

Worst Groomed Player Award
Randy Johnson has won four Cy Young Awards and a World Series MVP award but he's most proud of winning the 2001 Worst Groomed Player Award. Randy has a string bean frame, a trailer park mullet and acne scars that make the moon's surface look smoother than a baby's butt. Keep throwing that 100 mile per hour fastball, Randy, but cut the hair and try one of those avocado facials.

Players Most Likely to Be Found on a Wilderness Hike Award
You won't find any of these guys at the top of the homerun or strikeouts list - but you may run into them if you go for a walk through the woods.
Doug Creek, Andy Fox, Jason Bere, Randy Wolf, Kerry Wood, Tim Salmon and Torii Hunter.

Fattest Slob Award
This award goes to Calvin Pickering who is baseball's heaviest player. He weighs 285 pounds which means he's almost twice as heavy as Oakland shortstop, Oscar Salazar, who weighs just 150 pounds. Calvin says his hobbies are working out and swimming which means he enjoys pushing donuts towards his face while bathing in a tub of bacon fat. Homer Simpson would be proud.

Biggest Swing With No Ding Award.
Jose Fernandez of the Milwaukee Brewers struck out 185 times in 2001 - four off the major league record. He had just 135 hits and 25 homeruns. He's all swing, no ding.

Who do you think deserves a baseball award? to Kidzworld.
