Marlins Manager Don Mattingly was named NL Manager of the Year, adding the honor to a Most Valuable Player award as a player.
Mattingly is the fifth former winner of the MVP to be honored later as a Manager of the Year. He was the American League MVP in 1985 with the Yankees.
The others to do so: Frank Robinson, NL MVP in 1961 with the Reds and American League MVP with the Orioles in 1966 and AL Manager of the Year with the Orioles in 1989; Don Baylor, AL MVP with the Angels in 1979 and NL Manager of the Year with the Rockies in 1995; Joe Torre, NL MVP with the Cardinals in 1971 and AL Manager of the Year with the Yankees in 1996 (tied with the Rangers’ Johnny Oates) and 1998, and Kirk Gibson, NL MVP with the Dodgers in 1988 and NL Manager of the Year with the Diamondbacks in 2011.
Mattingly is the third Marlins manager to be honored. The others were Joe Girardi in 2006 and Jack McKeon in 2003.
No manager was named on every ballot.
Ballots, submitted prior to postseason play, were cast by two writers representing each league city. They are tabulated on a system that awards five points for first place, three points for second place and one point for third.
