Mike Trout (2009-10) runner-up MVP finish is the highest Cedar Rapids alumni placement since 1952

Mike Trout (Cedar Rapids Kernels – 2009-10) finished second in the American League Most Valuable Player voting in 2012 to the Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera. The runner-up finished was the highest placement since Allie Reynolds (Cedar Rapids Raiders – 1940-41) finished second to Bobby Shantz in 1952. Lou Boudreau (Cedar Rapids Raiders – 1938) is our only alumni to win a MVP award (1948 – American League). This is the 28th time a former Cedar Rapids professional baseball alum has finished in the top 10 of MVP voting in baseball history. It is the 84th time one of our alumni has received MVP votes. There have been 33 different players who played in Cedar Rapids that have received MVP votes.

Russ Ford (Cedar Rapids Rabbits – 1905-06) was the first to receive MVP votes finishing 18th in the American League in 1911 as a member of the New York Yankees. Emil Yde (Cedar Rapids Bunnies – 1921) was our first National League MVP vote recipiant finishing 21st in 1924 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Hal Trosky (Cedar Rapids Bunnies – 1931) was the first player to appear in the MVP voting in multiple seasons appearing on the ballot four times (1934 – 7th, 1936 – 10th, 1938 – 13th, and 1939 – 30th) all in the American League. Lou Boudreau received MVP a Cedar Rapids record 10 times receiving votes every year between 1940 and 1949 including the first place finish in 1948 when the Cleveland Indians won the World Series.

Seven of our alumni have appeared on MVP ballots five times or more. Ted Simmons (Cedar Rapids Cardinals – 1967) received votes seven times, Rocky Colavito (Cedar Rapids Indians – 1952) and Eric Davis (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1982) each received votes six different times. Allie Reynolds, Paul O’Neill (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1982) and Trevor Hoffman (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1991) each received votes in five different seasons.

Allie Reynolds and Lou Boudreau are our only alumni to finish in the top three twice. Boudreau finished third in 1947 before winning the award in 1948. Reynolds finished third in 1952 and second in 1952.

There have been multiple Cedar Rapids alumni vote recipients in the same year 19 times.  We have had four different players in the final ranking twice, 1965 and 1990. In 1965, Rocky Colavito finished fifth and Bobby Knoop (Cedar Rapids Braves – 1958) placed 24th in the American League, while John Roseboro (Cedar Rapids Raiders – 1955) finished 26th and Tony Cloninger (Cedar Rapids Braves – 1959) placed 28th in the National League. The mark was equaled in 1990 as the Cincinnati Reds won the World Series and three of the four Cedar Rapids alumni MVP vote recipients represented the same team for the only time in our history. Eric Davis placed 12th, Chris Sabo (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1983) was 13th and Paul O’Neill finished 19th. Kal Daniels (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1983) finished 27th representing the Los Angeles Dodgers.

There are two of our alumni who have earned MVP votes for three separate teams. Rocky Colavito represented the Indians in 1958, 1959 and 1965. Colavito twice received votes as a Tiger in 1961 and 1962 and represented the Kansas City Athletics in 1964. Ron Hunt (Cedar Rapids Braves – 1960-61) earned votes as a member of the Mets – 1964, Giants – 1969 and Montreal Expos – 1973.

Mike Trout was the first member of the Cedar Rapids Kernels teams to receive votes since John Lackey (Cedar Rapids Kernels – 2000) finished in 17th place in the American League in 2007. Trout and Lackey are the only players from the Kernels most recent affiliation to receive MVP votes.
