Gordon earns Royals Heart and Hustle Award

KANSAS CITY -- Before Friday night's game against the Nationals, Alex Gordon was presented with the Royals Heart and Hustle Award by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

The award, which is voted on by alumni, honors players who demonstrate a passion for the game of baseball and embody the values, spirit and traditions of the game. Gordon was honored for his work with the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds for cancer research.

A winner is selected from each team and then fans, alumni and active players will select a final winner from the 30 selections. The final winner will be announced on Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the 14th Annual Legends for Youth dinner in New York City.
