has been named Everton's Players' Player of the Season for the second time.
The left-back was a near unanimous selection amongst his peers and picks up a prize he also claimed in 2011.
An immeasurable force in Everton's push for a top-six finish, the unflappable full-back has played every minute of Premier League action - the only outfield player around the 20 clubs to do so.
Further recognition awaits too. Should Baines manage another full 90 against Chelsea on Sunday, he will join Sylvain Distin
in an elite group of six players to have achieved the feat twice in the Premier League era, having also racked up a full campaign two years ago.
“This award means a lot because it is voted for by the people you work with every day,” Baines told evertontv.
“We have a great team spirit here at Everton and anyone of the squad could have won this award, so I thank the lads for voting for me.”
Baines' stellar season has seen him contribute seven goals in 43 appearances, equalling his best ever tally in 2010/11.
Eight assists and countless lung-busting runs have also helped teammates enhance their own scoring records, while his dead-eye accuracy has been applied to a whopping 131 corners, 150 crosses and 154 free-kicks.
Defensively, the Kirkby-born star has weighed in with 12 blocks and 14 key clearances, committing just 31 fouls - some 30 less than those made against him.
"He's our key cog," effused goalkeeper Tim Howard
when recently asked to assess the 28-year-old's campaign.
"We've got [Marouane] Fellaini and [Steven] Pienaar and those guys, and obviously Kevin Mirallas
can produce a bit of magic.
"But without Bainesy this team doesn't go."
Internationally, Baines has also blossomed over the past 12 months, increasing his collection of caps to 15 and smashing home his first England goal in September's 5-0 win over Moldova before stealing the show with three assists in the Three Lions' 8-0 demolition of San Marino in March.
