The annual St. Louis Baseball Writers’ Association Dinner was held last Sunday evening. Among the honorees were the 1985 St. Louis Cardinals and retiring MLB Commissioner Bud Selig.
As a part of the event, a number of awards were given out to Cardinals players for their 2014 accomplishments plus one special honoree was singled out. They include:
Adam Wainwright received the St. Louis Baseball Man of the Year Award. (Earlier, The Cardinal Nation named Wainwright our St. Louis Starting Pitcher of the Year for 2014. You can read about his accomplishments last season here.)
Mark Ellis received the Darryl Kile Award, given annually to the player who exemplifies the traits of “a good teammate, a great friend, a fine father and a humble man.” (Read more about this award at The Cardinal Nation.)
Honorary member of the State College Spikes, 10-year-old Josiah Viera, received the Harry Mitauer Award for Good Guy of the Year. Josiah, who has a genetic disease called Progeria, can be seen in the center of the club’s New York-Penn League title celebration photo below.
