In an upset of shocking proportions, Fall Out Boy bassist and backup vocalist Pete Wentz was awarded the National League Cy Young Award on Tuesday, despite his never having thrown a pitch in the major leagues.
Wentz, a high school all-state soccer player, was nonetheless thrilled to receive baseball's highest pitching honor by taking 23 of 32 first-place votes. "I was definitely surprised. I thought it was going to be a lot closer," he said.
