It's awards season, the season in which writers, bloggers, and fans will argue over who did the best baseball things over the course of the 2015 season. SB Nation is doing their own awards-giving in the following categories:
- Hitter of the Year
- Pitcher of the Year
- Defensive Play of the Year
- Bat Flip / Celebration of the Year
- Best Breakage of Unwritten Rules of the Year
This particular article relates to the "Best Breakage of Unwritten Rules" award. I do not believe that "best" in this instance means "most awesome"; rather, it means the "most extreme". However, define this category as whatever it means to you. This is not separated by league. The writers at BtBS have submitted a few nominations for each award to help narrow down the choices from "everything" to "less than everything".
Jose Tabata leans in on a Max Scherzer pitch to break a perfect game
Jonathan Papelbon and Bryce Harper get into a fight
Noah Syndergaard throws high against Alcides Escobar
Chase Utley breaks Ruben Tejada's leg
Because this is more subjective, there will be an "Other" option. If you want to vote for something else, comment it below. If you, the reader, see the play for which you want to vote in the comments, rec the comment. I also realize that there was not an "Other" option for the first two awards. Given that this is a stats blog, there are only so many players who really can vie for the first two awards (by our thought process).
