The award goes out to the player that hustles every game and actually looks like he gives a damn about winning. This years winner was a very tough decision between Mark Ellis and Luis Cruz. The past two years this award was given to Jamey Carroll so it must be something about the number 14 that makes the player push a little harder than the rest. Considering Ellis almost lost his leg and came back to play just shows how much he cares. Congratulations Mark Ellis on a fine season and next time pick up your third base coach when trying to stretch that double into a triple.
