Al Mvp Complete Voting Results: Shohei Ohtani Makes History Again




Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels was unanimously selected as the American League MVP for 2021 by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.

The Los Angeles Angels may not have made the playoffs this season, but their fans and baseball enthusiasts were able to marvel at what two-way player Shohei Ohtani accomplished in 2021. Ohtani demonstrated that he is one of the league’s greatest stars from the batter’s box to the pitcher’s mound.

The Baseball Writers’ Association of America named Ohtani the AL MVP for 2021 on Thursday night. Ohtani not only won, but he won it unanimously.

Ohtani scored a perfect 420 and 30 first-place votes, earning him a perfect score. He is the 11th player in AL history to win the MVP award unanimously. The following are the other players who have done so:

  • Hank Greenberg (1935)
  • Al Rosen (1953)
  • Mickey Mantle (1956)
  • Frank Robinson (1966)
  • Denny McLain (1968)
  • Reggie Jackson (1973)
  • Jose Canseco (1988)
  • Frank Thomas (1993)
  • Ken Griffey Jr. (1997)
  • Mike Trout (2014)

It’s no surprise that Ohtani was selected as the league’s Most Valuable Player. Ohtani is the only player in MLB history to hit 30 home runs and strike out 30 batters in the same season, according to MLB Stats.

Through 155 games, Ohtani had a.257 batting average,.965 OPS, 46 home runs, 100 RBI, 138 hits, and a league-high eight triples. Through 130.1 innings, Ohtani has a.3.18 ERA, a 1.090 WHIP, a 9-2 win-loss record, 156 strikeouts, and 44 walks (23 starts).

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. of the Toronto Blue Jays finished in second place with 269 points after garnering 29 second-place votes from the writers. Second baseman Marcus Semien, Guerrero’s teammate, came in third with 24 third-place votes and a total of 232 points.
