Angels' C.J. Wilson Nominated For 2012 Roberto Clemente Award

Los Angeles Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson has been nominated for the 2012 Roberto Clemente Award, according to an announcement made by Major League Baseball and Chevrolet on Tuesday.

Wilson is one of the 30 finalists for the annual award, which recognizes a Major League Baseball player who represents the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including community involvement and sportsmanship. The 31-year-old Wilson not only has his own C.J. Wilson's Children's Charity, but he's also involved with the Boys & Girls Club of Huntington Valley, where he was a member as a child. He'll serve as the honorary chair of the club's annual gala this fall.

Wilson is scheduled to be honored on the field at Angel Stadium before Tuesday night's game against the Texas Rangers. Major League Baseball and Chevrolet will honor him with an award and present a $7,500 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Huntington Valley courtesy of Chevrolet.

Fans can vote for the National Award Recipient on MLB.com.
