The award isn't completely statistically based.
And now for the history of the Sliver Slugger award - hey, you never know when it will come up on final Jeopardy and you will thank me later if it does.
The Silver Slugger Award was instituted by H&B in 1980 as a natural extension of the Silver Bat Award which is, as its name indicates, a silver-plated bat presented by Louisville Slugger to the batting champions in the AL and NL.
Two other Marlins have won a Sliver Slugger besides Cabrera: Gary Sheffield in 1993 and 1996 and Mike Lowell in 2002.
