MILWAUKEE -- Fan favorite Nyjer Morgan is the "We Energies High-Energy Player of the Year," the Brewers and We Energies announced before Friday's game against the Marlins.

Morgan, whose on-field performance and off-field personality have made him incredibly popular in his first year with the Brewers, received 61 percent of the vote.

Voted on by the fans, media and We Energies staff, the "We Energies High-Energy Player of the Year" award is given each year to the player who best personifies the characteristics of hard work and an aggressive approach to playing the game.
