Buster Posey discusses winning the Players Choice Award for Comeback Player, National League
Giants catcher Buster Posey added another award for his stellar 2012 season, picking up the Players Choice Award for National League Comeback Player of the Year, presented by the Major League Baseball Players Association.
After his '11 season was cut short by a leg-breaking collision at home plate, Posey hit .336 on the season with 24 home runs and 103 RBIs on his way to a World Series championship with San Francisco. Such numbers also helped him pick up the Hank Aaron Award late last month.
Posey also had just 10 errors on the season, playing 114 games behind the plate and 29 games a first base for a .991 fielding percentage.
"I think anytime you are selected for an award by your teammates and peers, it is a great honor," Posey said. "It is something for me coming off the injury last year and I was just happy to be on the field. So, to be recognized by the guys means a lot to me."
