PITTSBURGH -- All-Star second baseman Dee Gordon was named the Dodgers' winner for the 2014 Heart & Hustle Award by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

Winners from each team are chosen by a committee of alumni players based on passion, desire and work ethic on and off the field. Later in the season, fans, alumni and active players will select a final winner from the 30 team reps.

The final winner will be announced Nov. 18 at the 15th Annual Legends for Youth Dinner in New York.

The previous final winners were David Eckstein (2005), Craig Biggio ('06, '07), Grady Sizemore ('08), Albert Pujols ('09), Roy Halladay ('10), Torii Hunter ('11), Mike Trout ('12) and Dustin Pedroia ('13).
