The winner won’t be announced until January, but there is yet another Mariner nominated for the award named in honor of former ballplayer Fred Hutchinson.  For those locals who follow this blog, you’re probably familiar with their radio ads and the hard work this local Cancer Research Center provides to the city of Seattle.  The award doesn’t traditionally go to someone connected locally, but did go to Tacoma native Jon Lester last year and Jamie Moyer in 2003.  Last year, Griffey and Raul were also on the 10-person list of nominations for their tireless community efforts.

If you’re curious about Lowe’s community work as well as the personal difficulties he’s overcome to succeed again at the major league level, be sure to check out Shannon Drayer’s blog on the subject.

The full list of recipients since 1965 (littered with All-Stars) is also available, and the list of this year’s nominees is here.

At only 26, this is quite an achievement.  Best of luck to Lowe!
