KUSA - Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado has been honored by his peers.
Arenado received the "Majestic Athletic Always Game Award" at the MLB Players Association's Players Choice Awards, which were announced Wednesday night.
The award goes annually to the player who "game in and game out constantly exhibits grit, tenacity, perseverance and hustle; all for the benefits of his teammates and fans," according to the MLBPA.
"I have a couple buddies and I have a friend that tells me, 'You want to be known as a guy that can play old-school ball. That's kind of how I approached it. I'm not really the flashiest guy. I just try to play hard. I want to be known as an old-school baseball player," Arenado told MLB Network on Wednesday.
This offseason Arenado earned his fifth Gold Glove Award, one for every year he's been in the majors. Arenado is the first infielder in history to begin his career with five straight Gold Glove Awards.
