Kirk Gibson yesterday became the first Los Angeles Dodger in 14 years to be named the National League's Most Valuable Player. In voting by the Baseball Writers Association of America, Gibson outdistanced two New York Mets outfielders, Darryl Strawberry and Kevin McReynolds. Gibson, the Dodgers' leftfielder, drove in only 76 runs, the lowest total for an MVP since Cincinnati's Pete Rose in 1973, but finished comfortably ahead of Strawberry, the league leader in home runs. Gibson helped turn a losing team into World Series champions, inspiring the Dodgers in the clubhouse and carrying them at the plate.

"Bo . . . Just Do It," advised the sign trailing the airplane that circled Anaheim Stadium at the start of last night's All-Star Game. Since the sign wasn't very explicit, Bo Jackson couldn't have been sure precisely what it was the shoe company that paid to put that plane aloft wanted him to do. So he did it all. He displayed that blinding speed and turned on that awesome power. He did everything but score a touchdown. And he won the game's most valuable player award. At Monday's news conference, National League president Bill White got a laugh when he congratulated the leading all-star vote-getters - "Will Clark of the National League and Bo Jackson of the Oakland Raiders.

INDIANAPOLIS - Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has won the 2011 Associated Press NFL most valuable player award in a landslide. Rodgers earned 48 votes to two for New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. The Packers star is the first Green Bay player honored since Brett Favre concluded a run of three straight seasons as MVP in 1997. "It means a lot to be recognized as a consistent player and contributing on my team," Rodgers said.

Dan Cappello showed up at the 16th annual Joseph J. Barrett Sr. All-Star Game, pitched three scoreless innings, left for home, and won the most-valuable-player award. Now that was how he had intended to finish his high school baseball career. Cappello, an Upper Darby senior, struck out four and walked two Saturday at Glen Mills, helping the Central League All-Stars beat the Del-Val League All-Stars, 3-1. Cappello had missed the Royals' final seven games of the season because of mononucleosis.

NASHVILLE - A shutout in an NHL All-Star Game and an MVP award for a player, John Scott, who is in the minors. Yes, it was one of the most bizarre all-star days in league history. Goalies Jonathan Quick and John Gibson did the unthinkable Sunday: They combined for a shutout as the Pacific Division edged the Atlantic, 1-0, in the NHL all-star championship game at Bridgestone Arena. It was a 20-minute, three-on-three contest, and the winners won $1 million - or nearly $91,000 for each of the 11 players.

Chris LaPierre's final high school game was a microcosm of his career at Shawnee, where he starred in football and lacrosse. The Inquirer's South Jersey senior athlete of the year, LaPierre earned game MVP honors last night after scoring two goals and adding a game-record four assists as his South team beat the North, 19-16, in the fourth annual Under Armour All-American Classic at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium. LaPierre's six points tied a single-game record that was matched last night by the North's Matt White, his future University of Virginia teammate.

He wasn't looking to change anyone's mind about him. Allen Iverson said he was just looking for his teammates. He found them often enough last night to record nine assists to go with 19 points as the East rookies beat the West, 96-91, at Gund Arena in the NBA's rookie all-star game. As a result, he was named the game's MVP. "I wasn't expecting anything like this," said Iverson, who has been maligned this season as the too-wild poster child for Generation X. "But I'm not hoping that now everybody will be on my side because of this award.

He had been dejected, disappointed, depressed, despising all of it. He had discovered himself seemingly trapped in the eye of a storm, loathing it. He was Isiah Lord Thomas, recognized as so tall in the vision of the basketball world, and yet he had begun to feel so small. His team, the Detroit Pistons, had lost 15 of 19 games. Their trainer, Mike Abdenour, had said during that stretch that they "could stand in the ocean and not throw the ball in the water. " What Isiah Thomas needed, more than anything, was to explode.

Joe Douglas called a top Baltimore Ravens executive in the fall of 2007 about a tall quarterback at Delaware who was not yet viewed as a top NFL draft prospect. Douglas, then a Northeast area scout for the Ravens and now the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, was enthralled by Joe Flacco. He attended Flacco's games and practices, watched film, and notified Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta about the Audubon native. "He had an enthusiasm in his voice that, knowing Joe, he's not the type of guy who is going to get real excited about anything," DeCosta said.

The Flyers' MVP of the first half of the season is - backup goalie Michal Neuvirth. At least that was the result of an informal survey in the locker room Wednesday before the Flyers reached the season's halfway point by facing Boston. Many players chose Claude Giroux as the team's MVP. Some selected Steve Mason. One player mentioned rookie Shayne Gostisbehere, even though he has played only 23 games, and another nominated Sean Couturier. But Neuvirth's name was mentioned more than any other.

THE RACE for NFL MVP is heavy with quarterbacks. Ditto for fantasy. Cam Newtown has led the Panthers to a 14-1 record and been a monster in fantasy, with 33 touchdown passes and eight more on the ground. Tom Brady also has been a horse, with 36 TD passes despite a sagging running game and plenty of injuries at wide receiver. He needs 364 yards Sunday at Miami for 5,000 for the season. Not impossible. He hooked the Dolphins for 356 in Week 8. Brady was especially valuable in fantasy leagues that drafted before Sept.

Question: Who is the Eagles' midseason MVP? Les Bowen: Jordan Hicks is on both MVP and IR lists Donnie Jones does his job more consistently than anyone else on the team. But making a punter the first-half MVP is a tough sell, so I'm going to go with the rookie whose season ended Sunday night. Jordan Hicks, the third-round draft pick from Texas, has been the guy with the biggest impact at the position where the Eagles seemed to have stacked the most impact players, and they clearly will need all of them, now that Hicks is out for the season with a torn pectoral tendon suffered on Dallas' final drive of Sunday's Eagles overtime victory.

CINCINNATI - Mike Trout's first career All-Star Game at-bat, in 2012 at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium, resulted in a single to center field. His first at-bats in each of his next two All-Star Games ended in a double and triple, respectively. So it was only fitting for baseball's best all-around player to complete his de facto All-Star Game cycle on Tuesday night at Great American Ball Park, sending the fourth pitch of the 86th midsummer classic the opposite way and over the right-field wall.

Joey Lancellotti had the type of baseball season that makes flowery prose clumsy and unnecessary. The junior for Archbishop Wood dominated from the mound and at the plate and helped the Vikings capture the Catholic League crown. That's why the North Carolina commit is the 2015 Daily News Most Valuable Player. As a pitcher Lancellotti finished 7-1 with a 0.67 ERA. He also allowed only five earned runs in more than 53 innings pitched. Last but not least, Lancellotti's complete-game no-hitter (14 strikeouts)
