NL Selects Rookie Star of the Month
Saturday, May 1st, 2004
J J Hardy's eyes seem to light up whenever he sees the baseball. The young Cincinnati shortstop has been hitting everything in sight for the better part of a month.

In April he was voted the Rookie of the Month Award.

During the month he hit .215 with 3 doubles, no triples and 5 home runs. Hardy also scored 9 times and drove in 15 runs.
American Names Rookie of Month
Saturday, May 1st, 2004
Adam LaRoche earned April's Rookie of the Month honors in the American for last month's performance. The boyish Los Angeles of Anaheim first baseman might be wet behind the ears, but he's proving that he has what it takes to play at this level.

LaRoche hit .271 with 6 home runs, 19 RBIs and 12 runs scored this past month on his way to winning the award.
National Premier Pitcher is Vazquez
Saturday, May 1st, 2004
Despite the number of years he's been in the league, Javier Vazquez still gets excited when he puts together a quality stretch like he had in April. The 27-year-old starter for Pittsburgh was named National Pitcher of the Month earlier today.

He collected 5 wins and no losses with 39 strikeouts in his 5 starts, putting up a fine 0.49 ERA in 36.2 innings of work.
