Russell Martin Wins Another Award

Russell Martin continues to fill up his trophy shelf and endear himself to Dodger Nation. He has been named the 2007 winner of the Tip O'Neil Award for being "judged to have excelled in individual achievement and team contribution while adhering to the highest ideals of the game of baseball."
"I'm simply overwhelmed," said Martin in a release. "I'd trade this and my other individual awards for a few more wins and a trip to the postseason, but I do play hard and I play with passion, and obviously people appreciate that."
It is an award given out by the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. BTW, Tip O'Neil was a 19th century Canadian ballplayer.
