Tom Racine Award Winners & Major League Honors

TOM RACINE AWARD WINNERS

Here is a complete list of Tom Racine MVP Award winners since 1996 when the award was created by the Burlington Free Press to name the Lake Monsters Most Valuable Player in a voting by the fans.

The award is named for Tom Racine, the General Manager of the Vermont Expos in 1994 and 1995 before passing away in January of 1996. A longtime Burlington businessman and community leader, Racine helped team owner Ray Pecor bring Minor League baseball back to Vermont.
