Justin Turner nominated for Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award – vote now

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Los Angeles DodgersHey kid, you like voting? Well, in addition to the MLB Fan of the Year competition below, there’s a fan ballot for the Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award.

The first step in the process is choosing who will be the finalist from each division. Justin Turner is the Dodgers’ nominee for the National League West.

A regular participant of his teammate, Clayton Kershaw’s Ping Pong 4 a Purpose, Justin is always active in his local community. This past August, he joined the Los Angeles Dream Center for their annual Back to School Bash in distributing 2,000 backpacks, each field with supplies including pencils, paper, and notebooks to families from the Echo Park, Rampart District, Skid Row, Lincoln Heights, South Central and Watts neighborhoods.

Kershaw won the award in 2014.

Turner’s competition from the NL West is made up of A.J. Pollock, Carlos Gonzalez, Jon Jay and Jake Peavy. Vote here. Finalists will be announced September 20.
