The International League is one of the oldest, most respected, and most talent filled systems in the entire country. The International League Most Valuable Player award is given annually to the best player in the league during the season and what follows below is a comprehensive list of every former International League MVP recipient.
"(Marv) Owen was the Tigers' anchor at third base for five years in the 1930s. He hit .317 and knocked in 96 runs in 1934, when his four infield mates each topped 100 RBI. During the 1934 World Series, he was involved in a celebrated scrap at third with the Cardinals' Ducky Medwick, who slid into the base unnecessarily hard on a triple when the Cardinals already had the game sewn up. - Author Ken Turetzky on BaseballLibrary.com

International League Most Valuable Player Award

More than seventy-five years of history and only four players who won this award failed to make it into the big leagues — their names are gray (non-linked).
