St. Louis Cardinals fans have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Saturday, Nov. 8, to vote for Matt Carpenter for the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association’s Heart & Hustle Award.
Carpenter was the very definition of heart and hustle, in my humble opinion, this season for the Cardinals. Getting key hits in clutch situations, hustling around the base path, making spectacular plays and celebrating and encouraging his teammates.
The award is voted on by Major League alumni and active players and is presented annually to a player who demonstrates a passion for the game of baseball and best embodies the values, spirit and traditions of the game.
The Heart & Hustle Award will be presented on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at the 15th Annual Legends for Youth Dinner at Capitale in New York City.

It should also be noted that former Cardinal, and current Cincinnati Red, Skip Schumaker is also a candidate for the award.
Vote for Matt Carpenter though. He’s actually on your team! Plus you love him!
