The Trophy Case

How many awards has Michael Jordan won?

Ivan Ward, 13

Marquand, Missouri

Michael has won more than 130 sports awards, including:

* four NBA Most Valuable Player awards,

* five NBA Finals MVP awards,

* three NBA All-Star MVP awards,

* the NBA Rookie of the Year award.

He was also the MVP of his Dixie League baseball team, at age 12!

Every time slugger Jim Eisenreich of the Florida Marlins steps into the batter's box, before the first pitch, he swings his bat not once, not twice, not three times . . . but four times! Jim's routine seems to be working pretty well. Over the last five seasons, his batting average is .315.
