November 27, 1953

Indian third baseman Al Rosen (.336, 43, 145) is selected the American League’s MVP by an unprecedented unanimous vote when he is named first on all 24 ballots cast by the writers. The 28-year-old infielder, completing his fourth full season as a major leaguer, just misses garnering the triple crown when Mickey Vernon tops him by one point for the best batting average in the circuit.
