Announcements were made for every position, giving honors to some players for the first time while further padding the trophy cabinet of other top fielders.
Chicago fans of all stripes were happy to see the outcome, which included awards for Cubs stars Javier Baez and Anthony Rizzo, as well as White Sox rookie Luis Robert.
