Most Valuable Player Award
Awarded for International League's Regular Season Most Valuable Player
Country United States
First awarded 1932
Currently held by Steven Souza

The International League Most Valuable Player Award (MVP) is an annual award given to the best player in minor league baseball's International League. Managers from the 14 International League teams vote for the winner of the award, which is then combined with 14 votes from various general managers, broadcasters, and media representatives around the league to determine a winner.[1] In 1932, Marv Owen won the first ever International League MVP Award.

First basemen, with 21 winners, have won the most among infielders, followed by third basemen (15), shortstops (9), and second basemen (5). Five catchers have won the award. Twenty-eight outfielders have won the MVP Award, the most of any position. A total of 4 pitchers have won the MVP award. The last pitcher to win was Red Barrett in 1942. The International League League now has a Most Valuable Pitcher Award, which was established in 1953. Rocky Nelson has the record for most MVP Award wins with three (1953, 1955, and 1958). Roberto Petagine has won the MVP Award twice.

Two International League MVP Award winners, Red Schoendienst and Jim Rice, have gone on to be inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.[2]
