Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz won his sixth Silver Slugger Award Wednesday. Baseball bat-maker Louisville Slugger announced the winners for 2013 during an awards show on MLB Network.
Ortiz, the MVP of the World Series, hit .309 with 160 hits, 30 home runs, and 103 RBIs in the 2013 regular season. He hit .353 in the playoffs with 5 homers and 13 RBIs.
The awards are voted on by managers and coaches -- who can’t vote for players on their own team -- for the best offensive players at each position.
