Reyes finished the season with a .337 batting average and walked away with the 2011 National League batting title. He also tied the Major League lead in triples with 16, and the National League lead with 57 multi-hit games.
Through a press release from the Mets, Reyes said:
"It’s an honor to be nominated for the Hank Aaron Award. He is an all-time great who all the players look up to no matter where you grew up. He was, and continues to be, a true gentleman of the game and I think everyone should try to be like him on and off the field."A panel of Hall of Fame players, including Roberto Alomar, Joe Morgan, Tony Gwynn, Paul Molitor, Willie McCovey, Billy Williams and Robin Yount, will join with fans to pick this year's award recipients.
Voting begins today, and ends October 9. The winner will be announced during the World Series.
