Hutch Award finalists announced

The list of 10 finalists for the 46th Hutch Award was just released by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, as chosen by a national committee:

Jeremy Affeldt, San Francisco Giants

Craig Breslow, Oakland Athletics

Michael Cuddyer, Minnesota Twins

Tim Hudson, Atlanta Braves

Torii Hunter, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Mike Lowell, Boston Red Sox

Albert Pujols, St. Louis Cardinals

Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds

Vernon Wells, Toronto Blue Jays

Josh Willingham, Washington Nationals

The winner will be chosen in November by a vote of all surviving Hutch winners and bestowed in January in Seattle. A total of 45 players have been honored since 1965, starting with Mickey Mantle and including Hall of Famers Sandy Koufax, Carl Yastrzemski, Willie McCovey and Lou Brock . Last year’s winner was Mark Teahen of the White Sox.

The Hutch Award is given to the major-league player “who best exemplifies the honor, courage and dedication of legendary baseball player and manager Fred Hutchinson.”

Hutchinson, of course, was a Seattle native, and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center was founded by Fred’s brother, Dr. Bill Hutchinson, after Fred died from cancer at age 45.
