Top 10 Greatest Cy Young Award Seasons

Beginning in 1956, MLB Commissioner Ford Frick inducted an award in honor of the late Cy Young, who passed away in 1955.

The award was named in honor of Young, who held almost every major pitching record at the time.

The award was given to one pitcher from 1956 until 1967, when it was awarded to one pitcher in both the American League and the National League.
