I was going to leave the headline as Ryan Howard named MVP and leave off the "of Japan Tour" part. That would have been mean to those of you who see the headlines first in RSS readers. Alas, Ryan Howard has not been named MVP of the National League, yet at least. He was however the most valuable player of the Japan Tour:
Howard, who had four homers and eight RBI in the series, was
named MVP of the tour.
"I got some good pitches to hit and had a lot of fun here,"
said Howard, the Philadelphia Phillies slugger who led the majors
with 58 homers this season. "I had a great time and I’m glad that
we were able to win every game."
Ryan Howard. What could we possibly say bad about him? I also found this note interesting:
The last time a team of major leaguers swept a tour of Japan was
when the Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig All-Stars went 17-0 in 1935.
