This year the Fan Friendly Seal of Approval recognizes three Major League Baseball players for their generosity of spirit towards baseball fans everywhere and for their recognition of the fans’ importance to the game as voted by the fans themselves. Please visit the award ballot to vote for your favorite Fan Friendly player for the upcoming season.

Ian Kinsler
This is Ian’s first time receiving the Fan Friendly Seal of Approval, though many might say he has always been a friendly guy. Two years ago, we interviewed Ian for our player profile, and his generosity of spirit came through there. Now it seems, with the Rangers making it to the World Series, the rest of the baseball world is starting to know it too. Congratulations to Ian, hope you continue your Fan Friendly ways.

Skip Schumaker

Skip Schumaker joins the list of winners this year for the first time. Fans throughout the Cardinals system have known Schumaker to be easy to speak with, and now he is getting votes from the big league fans. The Cardinals also gave him a vote of confidence after a down year by keeping him in their infield plans. Hopefully, he has a better season with his bat, his defense and he continues to be generous to the fans.

David Wright David Wright

David has become the poster child for the Fan Friendly Award, with this, his 5th win. Perhaps it is because he is such a bright spot for the Mets faithful, but David certainly has shown he will go out of his way to brighten the world of his fans. David doesn’t just give back on the field, but also through the David Wright Foundation Thanks David, and keep it up, maybe we can see you here again next year!
