Two Major League Baseball managers earned some hardware Tuesday night.
And now we have our Manager of the Year.
Miami Marlins skipper Don Mattingly took home the award for the National League.
Mattingly and the Marlins dealt with a COVID-19 outbreak early in the 2020 season that saw a lot of their games get postponed. Miami fought hard, though, and made the postseason before being bounced.
The Marlins finished 31-29.
For the American League, Kevin Cash of the Tampa Bay Rays earned the honor. Cash’s Rays were the best team in the American League East with a 40-20 record. They ultimately fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.
Hats off to both managers.
