Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Cole Hamels is the Texas Rangers' nominee for the 2016 Roberto Clemente Award, per MLB.

One player from each team is nominated for the award, which goes to the player who "best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual's contribution to his team."  Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates won the award last year.
