    Once again, Adrian Beltre has been named a finalist for the Hank Aaron Award.

    The award has recognized the most outstanding offensive performer in each league since it was established in 1999.

    Beltre was also a finalist in 2013, but the AL award went to Miguel Cabrera.

    "For the seventh year in a row, baseball fans have a say in the winners of this prestigious award. Fans can vote for their American and National League selections online at MLB.com and the 30 club sites through Oct. 14, MLB said. "For the first time in the award’s history, fans can also cast their votes on Twitter by using a unique hashtag for each finalist. Fourteen finalists were named All-Stars this year and overall the 30 finalists combined to have been named All-Stars 76 times. The group also features 18 players under the age of 30, with 11 aged 25 or younger."

    The award is also voted on by Hall of Fame players and Hank Aaron.
