November is the time to look back at the achievements of baseball’s greatest players
and select the one player in each league who meant the most to his team, and the sport, during the previous season.  The player whose superior play, remarkable achievements and inspirational leadership made him the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the American and the National leagues. 


Eight 500 Home Run Club members were selected as league MVPs two or more times. Frank Robinson was the first, and still the only, player to win a Most Valuable Player Award from both the American and National League.  Ernie Banks was twice named league MVP, despite playing on losing Chicago Cubs teams.


Mike Schmidt, Mickey Mantle and Jimmie Foxx all won three MVP awards, and Barry Bonds has been voted the National League MVP an unparalleled seven times.
