Max Scherzer: National League Cy Young Award Winner!
For our non-baseball following friends:
"The Cy Young Award is given annually to the best pitchers in Major League Baseball (MLB), one each for the American League (AL) and National League (NL). The award was first introduced in 1956 by Baseball Commissioner Ford Frick in honor of Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young, who died in 1955.
The award is voted on by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America"
For those of you who like fun facts, check out Max's insanely impressive resume:
