Dogs, Cats Cohabitating; Dodgers, Angels Unveil Joint Billboard

From a Dodgers press release:

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim jointly unveiled a billboard today celebrating the 2014 Most Valuable Player Awards of Dodger left-handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw and Angels center fielder Mike Trout. Located on the corner of Highland and Wilshire in Los Angeles, the billboard features the faces of Kershaw and Trout with the script “Is Your MVP Red Or Blue.”

2014 represented just the 11th occurrence in the 83-year history of the BBWAA MVP awards in which players from the same market captured their league’s respective honors (see chart below). Kershaw and Trout are the first duo to accomplish the feat since the 2002 season when Oakland’s Miguel Tejada and San Francisco’s Barry Bonds were tabbed as MVPs, and it is just the third such occurrence in the last 55 years.

Beginning today, the Angels and Dodgers are inviting fans to celebrate the Los Angeles clubs sweeping the MVP awards via social media. Fans can show their support by utilizing the hashtags #MVPKersh and #MVPTrout during a six-week period leading up to the annual “Freeway Series,” which takes place at Angel Stadium April 2-3 and Dodger Stadium April 4.
