Yesterday afternoon, the Baseball Writers' Association of America named 27-year-old Joey Votto National League MVP after his monster season, coupled with his team's trip to the playoffs. The Toronto native ended the 2010 season with a .324 batting average, .425 on-base percentage, 27 HRs and 113 RBIs. Votto edged out Albert Pujols, the two-time reigning NL MVP for the honor.

For the past several years, Votto has trained during his off-season at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. The new MVP recently arrived at the Academy's 400-acre private campus once again to work with the Athletic & Personal Development program.

Beyond his time training with IMG, Votto also has ties to IMG Academy baseball program coach Edgar Caceres. Before joining IMG, Caceres managed a number of rookies with the Sarasota, Fla-based Gulf Coast Reds in 2002, including the second-youngest member of the squad, Joey Votto.
