Heart? Check. Hustle? Check. Pence? Check.

Hunter Pence has been named the Astros' winner of the 2009 Heart and Hustle Award.

The Heart and Hustle Award is voted on by Major League alumni and presented annually to an active player who demonstrates a passion for the game of baseball and best embodies the values, spirit, and traditions of the game.

The award will be given out November 6. Grady Sizemore won the award last season, and Craig Biggio won it the two seasons before that.
