Former Angels' first-round pick Mike Trout was voted MVP and Prospect of the Year, while Juan Bustabad of Great Lakes, a Dodgers affiliate, was named Manager of the Year.
Trout opened eyes and gained national attention after his showing in Anaheim at the 2010 Futures Game. He tormented Midwest League pitchers during his time with Cedar Rapids, hitting .362 with six homers, 39 RBIs and 45 stolen bases in 81 games before earning a promotion to Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga.
Trout hasn't played in the Midwest League since June, but still ranks third in the circuit in steals.
Bustabad has led the Loons to an 81-44 overall record, easily the best mark in the circuit.
"It's exciting anytime you can get that award," Bustabad said after hearing the news at batting practice Tuesday. "It's a big accomplishment and it's by far the biggest award that I've received as a manager."
The selections come two months after the league hosted its annual All-Star Game, which featured five 2009 first-round Draft picks, including West Michigan RHP Jacob Turner (ninth overall), Trout (26th) and Clinton SS Nick Franklin (27th).
