Logan Forsythe is Rays winner of Heart and Hustle award
2B Logan Forsythe has been chosen the Rays winner of the 2016 Heart and Hustle award.
The award, given by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association, honors players "who demonstrate a passion for the game of baseball and best embody the values, spirit and traditions of the game.'' A panel of major-league alums vote a winner for each franchise annually.
"Logan has an admirable work ethic and consistently gives his all on the field," MLBPAA chief executive officer Dan Foster said in a statement. "He inspires young players and is a role model to his community.''
Toward the end of the season, active players and alums will vote an overall winner from the 30 team winners, with the presentation made in November at the 17th Annual Legends for Youth Dinner.
