The voting is now open for fans to vote for this year’s American and National League Hank Aaron awards. It is given to the best offensive player in each league. There are seven nominees in each league, including Fernando Tatis Jr. for the National League. The winner is decided by a group of Hall of Famers and you, the fans!

Tatis is on the NL ballot alongside Bryce Harper, Juan Soto, Brandon Crawford, Nicholas Castellanos, Paul Goldschmidt, and Freddie Freeman.

Forget the Hank Aaron award—Tatis has the edge to win the MVP partly largely of his offensive season. He may not have played in the same amount of games as others, but he still led the league in homers (42).

If you’re interested, the AL nominees are Aaron Judge, Shohei Ohtani, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Cedric Mullins, Matt Olson, Salvador Perez, and Jose Ramirez.

Make sure to vote for Fernando here!
