Rays' Sam Fuld wins ‘Heart and Hustle’ award
Rays outfielder Sam Fuld received the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association’s Heart and Hustle Award before Tuesday’s game with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Tropicana Field.
Fuld, who grew up in Durham, N.H., received the award in part for his work with young athletes with Type 1 Diabetes. He is one of 30 finalists for the MLBPAA national award.
“Glancing at the previous winners from us and other teams from the last couple years I’m in really good company, so that alone, I think, means a lot to me,” Fuld said. “And given what the award represents, I take a lot of pride in it.”
