Betts, Porcello recipients of 2016 Negro League Baseball Museum Legacy Awards

Although he finished second in the AL MVP voting to Mike Trout, Mookie Betts beat out Trout for separate award -- the 2016 Oscar Charleston Legacy award.

Both he and Kris Bryant -- the 2016 NL MVP -- received the awards from the Negro League Museum as the Most Valuable Players in their respective leagues.

Rick Porcello added to his 2016 hardware, taking home the Wilber “Bullet” Rogan Pitcher of the Year, the Legacy Awards’ equivalent to the Cy Young award. Washington’s Max Scherzer took home the top honors in the NL.
