No Award in 1994There was no Babe Ruth award given this year because the World Series was canceled due to the players strike. The Babe Ruth Award is given to the player with the best performance in the World Series, like the World Series MVP Award but presented several weeks after the World Series is over. The award is to honor baseball legend Babe Ruth, and has been awarded every year since 1949. (with the exception of 1994)
