Jim Thome is nominated for Walk-Off of the Year. The Phillies traded Thome to the Baltimore Orioles in June, but not before he provided some of their best highlights of the season. That included his record-setting 13th walk-off home run of his career on June 23 in a victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Thome had been tied with Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Stan Musial and Frank Robinson.
Phils third baseman Kevin Frandsen is nominated for Play of the Year for his great defense to save Cliff Lee a run at the plate on Aug. 21 in a game against the Reds.
Major League Baseball's A-listers will take home 2012 GIBBYs trophies based on votes by media, front-office personnel, MLB alumni, fans at MLB.com and the Society for American Baseball Research.
This year's GIBBY Awards feature nominees in 21 categories. Individual honors will go to the MLB MVP, in addition to the year's best starting pitcher, hitter, closer, setup man, rookie, breakout hitter, breakout pitcher, comeback player, defensive player, manager, executive and postseason performer.
GIBBY trophies also will be awarded for the year's top play, storyline, hitting performance, pitching performance, oddity, walk-off, Cut4 topic and postseason moment, from MLB.com's Must C highlight reels.
In the past four years, the fans have cast more than 40 million votes across the various GIBBYs categories, none of which were restricted to individual League affiliation.
You can vote as many times as you want until fan balloting closes Sunday, Dec. 2, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Winners will be presented their GIBBY trophies at the MLB.com Greatness in Baseball Yearly Awards extravaganza during the Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tenn., on Tuesday, Dec. 4.
