BOSTON Procter & Gamble’s Gillette brand is partnering with Major League Baseball to present the MLB Rookie of the Month Award to the American League and National League top-performing rookie each month.
Baseball fans will have a voice in selecting the Rookie of the Month winners by voting online at www.mlb.com/gillette each month. Nominees are selected from all eligible players by pre-determined on-field statistical criteria. The online fan vote will represent 20 percent of the overall vote with the remaining votes coming from a team of baseball writers and Club broadcasters.
Once voting is concluded, Gillette, Major League Baseball and MLB Advanced Media will announce the winning rookie and will congratulate the winners online. Gillette will also present the award winners with a MLB Rookie of the Month trophy following the announcement and will make a donation to a charitable organization in the award recipient’s name.
