Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain named ALCS MVP


From the official Twitter account of the Kansas City Royals …

Cain has been one of the breakout stars of this postseason, making tremendous plays in center field, showing elite speed on the bases, and going 12-for-34 (.353) at the plate for the World Series-bound Royals. He went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Tuesday’s decisive Game 4 win over the Orioles, but the ultra-athletic 28-year-old still finished the series 8-for-15 (.533) with five runs scored. Not bad for a guy who didn’t begin playing baseball until age 16. The Royals got him from the Brewers in the December 2010 Zack Greinke trade.
