The MLB award season is growing closer and there will be a number of prestigious honors that will be announced. One of these honors is the Manager of the Year Award for both the National League and the American League.
This award recognizes a manager who did an outstanding job leading his team. Many of these men helped turned their teams around and got them through their most pressing issues.
There is much more to managing a baseball team than just making the lineup card on a day in and day out basis. Each of these managers were consistently able to motivate their players on a daily basis, which is just one of the reasons why they are contenders for the Manager of the Year Award in their respective league.
