Isiah Kiner-Falefa is making a name for himself in the Major League.
The Mid-Pacific graduate is the Texas Rangers Team recipient of the 2018 Heart and Hustle Award presented by the MLB Players Alumni Association.
The Heart and Hustle Award was created by the MLB Players Alumni Association in 2005.
The annual award is voted on by Alumni and active Major League players and is presented to an active player who demonstrates a passion for the game of baseball and embodies the values, spirit and traditions of the game.
One player from each Major League team is chosen by the committees based on the passion, desire, and work ethic demonstrated both on and off the field.
These players will be recognized prior to an upcoming home game.
The overall winner will be announced Nov. 8, 2018, at the 19th annual Legends for Youth Dinner in New York City.
