Felix Hernandez finally gets some hardware to take home

One day after finishing second in the Cy Young Award race, Felix Hernandez has something more to add to his trophy shelf. I’ve seen it and it’s pretty cluttered already, but this is something he’ll hold close to his heart.
It’s the Luis Aparicio Award, given to the player chosen as the best Venezuelan in the majors. That’s Aparicio himself handing the award to Hernandez at a winter ball game in Maracaibo, Venezuela earlier today. Our contacts down in Venezuela, at Diario Panorama (the guys who got the Adam Jones interview on the Erik Bedard trade two years ago) supplied the info and photo.
Considering all of the quality Venezuelans in the majors, it’s quite an accomplishment. Given how badly Hernandez wants to play winter ball in front of his countrymen — something he’s not allowed by the team to do — I’d say this was a thrill for him.
