Congratulations to Francisco Lindor for winning the Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award! The award is given for excellence on the field and in the community and is voted on by the players. Here’s some of Lindor’s contributions outside of the game:

Off the field, Lindor has been active in helping with hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico. When the island that many MLB players call home was hit by Hurricane Fiona in September, the Amazin’ Mets Foundation partnered with Team Rubicon and Global Empowerment Mission to aid with relief efforts. Lindor donated $50,000 to Team Rubicon and Mets owner and president of the Amazin’ Mets Foundation, Alex Cohen, pledged to match the donation through the foundation.

Lindor has long been involved in mentoring young people through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Boys and Girls Clubs and his former school, Montverde Academy in Montverde Florida. Last year, and in 2021 he donated $1 million to Montverde Academy in Florida and established the Francisco Lindor Scholarship Fund.

The award has been given each year since 1997 and Lindor is the second Mets player to win, with retired outfielder Curtis Granderson winning his first of three Marvin Miller Man of the Year Awards in 2016.
