Dom Smith of the NY Mets has been named a National League finalist for the 2020 Hank Aaron Award.
Established in 1999 to honor the 25th anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth's all-time home run record, the Hank Aaron Awards are officially sanctioned by MLB and recognize the most outstanding offensive performers in each League. Aaron and a panel of fellow Hall of Famers will combine with a fan vote to determine the winners.
Smith's breakout season for the Mets included a .316/.377/.616 slash line, a .993 OPS, 10 home runs and 42 RBIs. The 25-year-old first baseman and left fielder ranked fourth in the NL in slugging and OPS, tied for fifth in RBIs and finished eighth in the batting race.
