Valentín Selected 2041 FPL Most Valuable Player
Thursday, January 2nd, 2042
At the age of 21, José Valentín of the Tallahassee Gamblers could very well have his best years ahead of him.

It's a startling thought when you consider the year he had in 2041 was good enough to win the right fielder the Florida Prospect League Most Valuable Player.

"See the ball, hit the ball," he said. "That's my basic approach."

The top hitter put up a .426 batting average this year, as well as a .477 on-base percentage. He played 34 games and racked up 58 hits, 9 doubles, 4 triples, 13 home runs, 39 RBIs and 34 runs scored.

He received 32 first place votes, as a unanimous winner. Matt Normore of the Coral Gables Lumberjacks finished second in voting, while Scott Bell of the Fort Lauderdale Pioneers finished third.

FPL Reliever of the Year Award Winner Named
Thursday, January 2nd, 2042
Albert Gonzáles said he thinks hitters often underestimate him, as he's only 24 years old.

But he'll certainly be getting a lot more respect now, as the Homestead Talons rising star has won the Florida Prospect League Reliever of the Year Award for 2041.

He captured the award on the strength of his 0.67 ERA over 27 innings. He also had 1 save in 11 relief appearances, 27 strikeouts and only 9 walks.

He received 30 first place votes out of a possible 32. Félix Jiménez of the Melbourne Storm finished second in voting with 1 first place vote, while Luis Manuel Rodríguez of the West Palm Beach Surfers finished third with 1 first place vote.
