Lesser-Known MLB Awards Sound Eerily Familiar

A cute little infographic went up last week over at The Onion, detailing "Lesser-Known Awards in Major League Baseball". As to be expected from The Onion, there were some great nuggets (John Kruk's award led the pack), but also this:

Player of the Inning Pen: Awarded every inning of each game to the player who best exemplifies that inning

Hmm. Sounds perilously similar to the "Rookie of the Minute" Award we mentioned back in June 2008, right? (Except for the fact that The Onion's was funny, and ours wasn't. Alas, we keep trying.)

I know it's terrible...but EVERY single time I see John Kruk...I think about him having one testicle. I KNOW!! It's terrible!
