Buck Showalter Wins His Third Manager Of The Year Award; Matt Williams, His First.

Baltimore Orioles skipper Buck Showalter won his third Manager of the Year award today – and for his third AL team, no less (the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees, too). Showalter is tied with three other managers with three awards apiece.

The Manager of the Year award has been bestowed since just 1983. Only two have won four: two long-timers, Bobby Cox (30 years) and Tony LaRussa (35 years). Both won it in both leagues, LaRussa with three different teams.

Jim Leyland, Lou Piniella, Bob Melvin and Davey Johnson also won it in both leagues.
