  • #OMG! Play of the Year

    The ones you had to watch over and over
  • Bourjos' home run-robbing catch

    Mike Trout made a ridiculous grab in Baltimore last year. Peter Bourjos did his best to top him with this snag.

  • Donaldson's tarp catch

    Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson ain't afraid of no tarp. This clip got plenty of people talking (and re-watching).

  • Escobar's glove-flip

    Escobar's glove-flip snags two outs -- and a huge ovation from the crowd.

  • Gomez robs Votto of a homer

    Carlos Gomez, outfielder for the Brewers, makes a perfectly timed leap to steal a go-ahead homer from Joey Votto and a win for the Brewers.

  • Iglesias defies gravity

    While falling, Jose Iglesias was somehow able to get this ball to first in time for the out.

  • Machado makes a play

    After bobbling this grounder, Manny Machado rebounded, to say the least.

  • Phillips' dazzling double play

    Brandon Phillips is always coming up with new ways to make amazing plays at second base.

  • Revere's diving grab

    Ben Revere got some serious hangtime on this diving grab against Todd Frazier and the Reds.

  • Shuck's over-the-wall catch

    Angels outfielder J.B. Shuck's unforgettable leap over the wall left fans speechless (and Jose Bautista home run-less).

  • Venable's diving catch

    Will Venable makes a catch for the history books. The Padres outfielder steals the winning run with a sensational diving grab -- fully extended -- and lands on the warning track.

  • #SAW (Stop-And-Watch) Award

    What player did you have to see in 2013?
  • Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera fouled a pitch off his knee during a battle against Mariano Rivera, arguably the game's greatest closer. He wasn't fazed one bit.

  • Aroldis Chapman

    When Aroldis Chapman is throwing the heat, hitters hardly stand a chance, as he proved against the Pirates.

  • Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper is always hustling and he proved it again with this diving grab against the Blue Jays.

  • Yasiel Puig

    Yasiel Puig showed very quickly in his career that he has an absolute cannon.

  • Mike Trout

    In his second amazing year, Mike Trout crossed "cycle" off his already extensive list of accomplishments.

    You can't make this stuff up
  • DeVito surprises Punto postgame

    Tito gets personal after Jason Giambi hits a walkoff home run in Cleveland.

  • Hunter "Tigers Gotta Eat"

    Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter evades reporters' questions ... sort of.

  • Kawasaki addresses crowd after walkoff

    It's tough to pinpoint the best part of this postgame speech. Maybe it was when Munenori Kawasaki borrowed the mic, or when he whipped out his translation book, or when he got pie'd -- how about you decide.

  • Maddon and his wine

    What does Rays Manager Joe Maddon do after he's ejected from a game? Cracks open a nice bottle of red, of course.

  • Best MLB Fan Cave Video

    Our favorite Cave spoofs

  • Best MLB Meme

    Y U NO vote for your favorite meme?
  • #Huntering

    It's not every day you see someone flip over the wall to try to rob a home run. But once Torii Hunter did it, everyone got in on the action and Torii's flailing legs were everywhere.

  • #Kimbreling

    Craig Kimbrel's staredown may be scary to hitters, but it's a whole lot of fun to imitate.

    Did Will Middlebrooks trip Allen Craig on purpose in the World Series? Doesn't matter -- it started one great trend.

  • #TWTW

    Hawk Harrelson believes there needs to be a new stat, "The Will To Win," and it has caught on like wildfire.

  • Upton Here, Upton Here

    When both Uptons joined forces, the names in the Braves' outfield started to sound like DMX's late 90's hit, "Party Up."

  • Best Team Promotion

    What got fans talking?
  • @Cafe

    Giants fans can now take a break during the game to grab a coffee and some valuable tweet time. The @cafe -- complete with a Peet's Coffee bar -- opened this year at AT&T Park, giving visitors a glimpse into the Giants' social media command center.

  • #Brohio

  • Celebrity Fan of the Year

    The heavy-hitter with the most power
  • Andy Cohen

    They may not be as controversial as the Real Housewives, but the Cardinals keep Bravo "Watch What Happens LIVE" host Andy Cohen plenty entertained.

  • Seth Myers

    Live from... Boston? Saturday Night Live writer Seth Myers -- raised in New Hampshire -- is a longtime citizen of Red Sox Nation.

  • Jerry Seinfeld

    What's the deal with the Mets? Although his famous sitcom featured that other New York ball club, Seinfeld is actually a die-hard Mets fan. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  • Favorite Follow

    The player whose tweets kept us most entertained

  • Andrew McCutchen

  • Brandon Phillips

    #ALLREADY. @DatDudeBP has been a MLB social media heavyweight for a few years now, holding contests for fans and retweeting pictures that fans take with him. On top of that, he always gives followers an inside look into what's going on in his life.

  • Selfie of the Year

    Baseball's best self-portraits

    Looking good on and off the field, Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen suits up to take on the 2013 MLB season.

  • Kelly Nash

    The selfie that launched a thousand theories! Tampa Bay correspondent Kelly Nash says she has a no-Photoshop policy and just so happened to be in the right place at the right time.

  • Ben Revere

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but this selfie from Phillies outfielder Ben Revere can make us think of just one -- CHEESESTEAK.

  • Jose Reyes

  • BoSox win World Series

    Boston Strongest. For the third time in 10 years, the Red Sox are World Series Champions.

  • Koufax and Kershaw

    Two of the greatest left-handers in history, past and present, came together in one pristine moment that may never be replicated.

  • Pirates win Wild Card game

    A moment 21 years in the making. For the first time since 1992, the Pittsburgh Pirates had won a postseason game. In front of a raucous PNC Park crowd, no less.

  • Rivera crying on Pettitte's shoulder

    It takes a lot to make Mariano Rivera break down. When the last two remaining members of the Core Four took that slow walk to the pitcher's mound, relieving Mo for the final time in his career, it brought the house to tears.

  • Socially Savvy Rookie

    The newbie with the best social presence
  • Sonny Gray

    Gray was an integral part of the A's run to the top of the AL West and proved to fit in with the team's culture on top of that. He had a ton of funny and insightful tweets, and also had a touching one where he gave playoff tickets to his unsuspecting waiter who happened to be a huge A's fan.

  • Wil Myers

    The AL Rookie of the Year adjusted quickly when he took the field somewhat late in the Rays' season and let us in on the ride from his Twitter account.

    Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar took the #FinalVote campaign to a whole new level with this tweet. This is clearly why he won.

  • Pirates advance to postseason

    How do you capture a moment as historic as the Pirates making the postseason for the first time in 21 years? Exclamation points. Lots of exclamation points.

  • Red Sox/Rays Twitter spat

    Duels on the diamond, tussles on Twitter. Nothing like the AL East, right?

  • Yankees Tweet showing support for Red Sox

    The tragedy at the Boston Marathon superceded any sense of rivalry. In a display of support from miles away, the Yankees, Red Sox and all the fans stood as one.
