Mark Teixeira has been named the Yankees nominee for the 2012 Roberto Clemente Award, the team announced. The award is given annually to the player who most helps his community through charity work and his club on the field. Derek Jeter won the award back in 2009. Each team has a nominee for the award, and you can vote here to help decide the winner. The Clemente Award is a pretty big deal, so congrats to Teixeira for being nominated.
