Trout, Harper win Rookie of the Year

The young phenom, Mike Trout has unanimously won the American League Rookie of the Year award, easily beating out Wei-Yen Chen and Yoenis Cespedes. Trout had a historic rookie season for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The New Jersey native hit .326 with thirty home runs, 129 runs scored and 49 stolen bases.

In the National League, it was Bryce Harper who took home the most coveted prize for rookies. He just barely beat out Wade Miley and Todd Frazier for the top spot. In my opinion, Todd Frazier deserved the award. He meant a lot to the team because his ability to play multiple positions and his hot streak while Joey Votto was on the disabled list. He carried the Reds for a good month of the season. While Wade Miley was great this season, his team did not make the playoffs so that does not do it for me.
