As MLB’s awards season rolls on, the league revealed the winners of the two Manager of the Year awards. In both the American and National Leagues, the hardware went to a familiar face.
Guardians skipper Terry Francona was named the AL’s Manager of the Year for the third time in his career, while Buck Showalter of the Mets took home the honors in the NL.
Showalter had been named Manager of the Year three times before this season, all in the AL. This is the fourth team he’s won the award with after previously winning with the Yankees (1994), Rangers (’04) and Orioles (’14). Francona has won all three of his awards with Cleveland, previously winning in ’13 and ’16.
Baltimore’s Brandon Hyde came in second in the AL voting with nine first-place votes, while Seattle’s Scott Servais finished third with one first-place vote. Houston manager Dusty Baker received three first-place nods and came in fourth, while Yankees manager Aaron Boone finished fifth.
