BASEBALL

Media release: Braves manager Brian Snitker is far from the only person who has great appreciation for the passion and drive Ozzie Albies has shown throughout his young career.

The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association announced Albies as the overall winner of the 2021 Heart and Hustle Award on Friday. This honor annually recognizes a player who best embodies the values, spirit and tradition of the game. A committee of former players is used to conduct the balloting.

“I don’t know anybody who has any more fun playing baseball than that kid,” Snitker said earlier this year. “It’s just what he does. He’s a joy to be around.”

Albies helped the Braves win the World Series with both his Gold Glove-caliber defense and his powerful bat. The 24-year-old second baseman hit .259 with 30 homers, 106 RBIs and a .799 OPS while earning his second career All-Star selection and a second Silver Slugger Award. His 77 extra-base hits ranked second in the National League, trailing only NL MVP Bryce Harper’s total (78).
