Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers is the National League's Most Valuable Player for 2011. The 28 year old left fielder outpolled Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the honor. Braun received 20 of 32 first place votes while Kemp garnered 12 in a near, triple crown year. Prince Fielder came in a distant third. Braun was the leader of the Crew, hitting .332 with 33 home runs and 111 runs batted in and 109 runs scored while stealing over 30 bases and commiting only one error in left field. What likely separated Braun from Kemp was the fact he led the Brewers to the National League Central Division championship, a first round series victory over Arizona and into the NL Championship Series. Braun is the third Brewer to win the MVP award joining Rollie Fingers in 1981 and Robin Yount, a two time winner in 1982 and again in 1989. Henry Aaron also won the MVP in Milwaukee, with the Braves.
