Former Seminole Posey Named NL Rookie of the Year

San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey(notes) and Texas Rangers closing pitcher Neftali Feliz(notes) were named as Major League Baseball’s rookies of the year on Monday, two weeks after having faced each other in the World Series.

Posey singled off Feliz as the Giants beat Texas in the clinching Game 5 of the World Series.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been two weeks,” Posey said.

Posey hit several key home runs late in the season and helped the Giants win the World Series for the first time since 1954. He easily outdistanced Atlanta outfielder Jason Heyward(notes) for the National League award.
