Default Jose Altuve Wins A.L. MVP
As a three-time batting champ and four-time American League hits leader, Jose Altuve long ago erased any concerns about his height. Now itís his stature within the game thatís talked about.

On Thursday, the Houston Astros second baseman rose to baseballís highest individual level when he was chosen as the AL MVP.

The 5-foot-6 Altuve was named on 27 of 30 first-place ballots to collect 405 points as he outdistanced New York Yankees rookie Aaron Judge, who received two first-place votes for 279 points. Cleveland Indians infielder Jose Ramirez was third with 237 points.

Altuve tied former Yankees shortstop Phil Rizzuto (1950) and onetime Philadelphia A's pitcher Bobby Shantz (1952) as the shortest MVPs in baseball history.

ďThatís what I love about baseball, that it gives the opportunity for every single guy to develop and play the game,'' Altuve said. "Thereís not a rule that you have to be 6 foot or you have to be real strong to play baseball or to become a good player.íí
