Delgado wins Clemente Award

Mark Newman at Mets.com, writes about Carlos Delgado and him winning the Clemente Award:

Nine days earlier, Carlos Delgado was in the same interview room at Busch Stadium to talk about the two home runs he had just hit for the Mets to even the National League Championship Series at two wins apiece.

He was back there on Tuesday for a very different reason. Out on the field, the Cardinals, and not the Mets, were taking batting practice before Game 3 of the World Series against Detroit. In this room, Delgado was receiving the Roberto Clemente Award in recognition of the player who in 2006 best exemplified sportsmanship, community involvement and contribution to his team.
