The Fan Friendly Seal of Approval recognizes MLB Players for their generosity of spirit towards baseball fans everywhere and for the player's recognition of the fans importance to the game. Place your vote for the players you consider to be "Fan Friendly!"

The 2010 recipients of the Fan Friendly Seal of Approval are:

Torii Hunter
It's Torii Hunter's first time being honored with a LoveMyTeam Fan Friendly Award, and it couldn't be more deserving. As one fan pointed out, Hunter even "took the time to sign autographs in Fenway Park during the ALDS this year!" Besides reaching out to fans in the stands, Torii also does work in the community through The Torii Hunter Project. Thanks Torii for always thinking of us. (Photo courtesy of Angels Baseball)
Brian Roberts
After a year away, Brian returns to the Fan Friendly Award winner's list for his third award. Brian has consistently been a bright spot for the Orioles, and for their fans, and his election to this roster shows that. Brian has done a tremendous amount of work to benefit the University of Maryland Hospital for Children. Thanks Brian for giving fans a special reason to go the yard.
Lyle Overbay
Since Lyle played the last few years in Toronto, fewer fans have gotten to experience how generous he is with his time. But many folks shared stories of how approachable Lyle was while working with kids at a batting camp, or at charity events within the community. We may not always have opportunities to interact with players, but fans appreciate when a player takes the time to make their kids feel special. Thanks, Lyle, for all that you do!
Nick Swisher
Nick Swisher's smile lights up the stadium, but that isn't the only reason fans voted Swish Fan Friendly. Its how he makes his fans feel. Said one fan, "he makes you feel you are doing him a favor when you engage him" at the ballpark. Nick also does a lot of charity work. Check out his website for more information about Swish's Wishes. Thanks Nick, keep on smiling!
David Wright
This is the fourth year in a row that David has won the Fan Friendly Award. That must mean, as one fan pointed out, that he really "is the poster child for everything that is right in baseball." David doesn't just give back on the field, but also through his David Wright Foundation Thanks David, and keep it up!
