By Capturing The 2011 NL MVP Award, Ryan Braun Places Himself In Elite Company!!!
Case in point: Braun is the 13th player to win both an NL MVP Award and the NL Rookie of the Year Award, which he was awarded in 2007. That puts him in very good company; the other dual winners are Ryan Howard, Pujols, Jeff Bagwell, Andre Dawson, Johnny Bench, Dick Allen, Pete Rose, Willie McCovey, Orlando Cepeda, Frank Robinson, Willie Mays and Don Newcombe.
Solid company right there – and he is just 28 years old!!!
