On Tuesday the Los Angeles Dodgers announced that All-Star center fielder Matt Kemp was the winner of the sixth annual Roy Campanella Award. Dodger players and coaches vote on this prestigious award, which honors the spirit and leadership of the late Hall of Fame catcher. The award will be presented to Kemp on Wednesday by Campanella’s daughter, Joni Campanella Roan, during a pre-game ceremony at Dodger Stadium. Kemp is about to finish his fourth full Major League season, which is nothing short of spectacular. He is currently hitting .320 with 34 homers, 113 RBI’s and 103 runs scored. He also owns the longest-active games played streak in Major League Baseball with 355 consecutive games.
The Good In Sports congratulates Matt Kemp for his dedication to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Major League Baseball.
