Aaron Hill Wins 2012 Silver Slugger Award

Christian Petersen

Aaron Hill won the 2012 Silver Slugger Award, being named the best offensive National League second baseman. The award is voted on by coaches and managers from both leagues.

Aaron Hill has won his second career Silver Slugger Award for an outstanding offensive season. Led by his being the first hitter in 81 years to hit two cycles in a season (and doing it only 11 days apart), Hill hit for a line of .302 AVG / .360 OBP / .522 SLG / .882 OPS. He hit 26 home runs, six triples, 44 doubles, and drove in 85 runs.

Hill is the first Arizona Diamondbacks infielder to win the award. Pitcher Daniel Hudson and outfielder Justin Upton won last year; Micah Owings and Luis Gonzalez are also past winners.

His first Silver Slugger Award was won in 2009 while with the Toronto Blue Jays, where he hit 36 home runs. For a list of other Silver Slugger winners, visit MLB.com.
