While David Wright’s season on the field hasn’t been what we are accustomed to, his off-field leadership presence is. The Youth Bloggers from the Baseball Bloggers Alliance voted on who should win the inaugural BBA Tony Gwynn Leadership Award. After 2 rounds of serious down to the wire voting, we picked David Wright as the inaugural winner of this award. We decimated this award to Tony Gwynn who passed away earlier this year.
David Wright deserved the award for his noticeable charity organization “The David Wright Foundation”. David also helped founding “The Wright Thing” which gives back to the community, and lets not forget that David is the Captain of the Mets. Congratulations to Mets 3B David Wright!
