You probably knew there was an Edgar Martinez Award. I didn't. Because I'm a National League kind of guy, maybe an award for the designated hitter of the year didn't crack my consciousness. The Designated Hitter of the Year Award was renamed the Edgar Martinez Award in 2004. The Award has been given out since 1973. Here are some past winners.
David Ortiz (2014 Stadium Club)
Billy Butler (2012 Topps Chrome)
Vladimir Guerrero (2010 Topps National Chicle)
Adam Lind (2009 Topps 206)
Aubrey Huff (2008 Topps Opening Day)
Ellis Burks (2002 Fleer Tradition Update)
Edgar Martinez (2001 Topps Fusion)
Rafael Palmeiro (1999 Pacific Prism Holographic Gold)
Paul Molitor (1993 Pinnacle Cooperstown)
There doesn't seem to have been a winner for 1994.
Dave Winfield (1992 Ultra)
Chili Davis (1991 Upper Deck)
Dave Parker (1990 Classic Yellow)
Harold Baines (1987 Donruss)
