St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt got the National League’s Most Valuable Player award. He received 22 first-place votes while runner-up Manny Machado of the San Diego Padres got seven and the Cardinals’ Nolan Arenado got one.

Goldschmidt  has finished in the top three in MVP voting three times but this is the first time he’s gotten the top honor.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is the American League’s Most Valuable Player of the year. The runners-up were Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels and Yordan Alvarez of the Houston Astros.

Judge led the league in categories including home runs, RBIs, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, and total bases. He’s the first Yankees outfielder to get the prize since Mickey Mantle won it in 1962.


Judge's 62nd Home Run Ball Going Up For Auction

The guy who caught Yankees’ star Aaron Judge’s record-setting 62nd home run ball in October is putting it up for auction this month.

Cory Youmans declined a $3 million offer for the ball right after he caught it. The current top price for a baseball is $3.05 million, paid for Mark  McGwire's then-record 70th home run in 1998. The auction at collectibles house Goldin opens on November 29.
