The Fan Friendly Seal of Approval recognizes MLB Players for their generosity of spirit towards baseball
fans everywhere and for the player’s recognition of the fans importance to the game. Place your vote
for the players you consider to be “Fan Friendly!”

The 2012 recipients of the Fan Friendly Seal of Approval are:

Miguel Montero Miguel Montero

Despite being an All-Star in 2011, Miguel Montero may not be a house-hold name just yet, but fans who met him at a signing event spoke about how he took the time to speak with them, looked them in the eyes, and made them feel special. It may seem very simple, but Montero shows this kindness to all the D’backs fans he comes in contact with. Thanks Miguel for being so gracious!

Brandon Phillips Brandon Phillips

This is Brandon’s first time receiving the Fan Friendly Seal of Approval, though many might say he has always been a friendly guy. One fan told a story of him playing catch with a young fan in the stand prior to a spring training game in 2011. Phillips also made news this past season for flying fans to games and spending time with them. He is a definitely a Fan Friendly guy.
Dave Robertson Dave Robertson

If you live in the New York area or the Tuscaloosa, Alabama area, you don’t have to guess at why Robertson might be considered a fan friendly winner. He has done so much for the area he is from by raising money for the victims of the Tuscaloosa tornados last year. Additionally, he has found ways to interact with Yankee fans that have left them with a smile on their face. Nicely done, Dave. For more information on David’s charity, visit

Skip Schumaker Skip Schumaker

Skip Schumaker joins the list of multiple winners this year with his second win. Schumaker continues to show fans that he values them. One fan even shared a story about how the outfielder ignored staff at the Cardinals Winter Warm-up last year so he could take just a little extra time to speak with her. Its good to know the big leagues haven’t changed him. Thanks Skip!

Brandon Phillips is a great choice. I watched him interact with the fans almost every day the Reds had a game in Sarasota. He always went out of his way to sign and get baseballs for the kids.
