Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award[edit]

The Sporting News established in 1944 the Pitcher of the Year Award.[1][2] The award is given annually to the pitcher in each league as having the most outstanding season, no awards were given in 1946 or 1947.[1][2] This award was established before there was a Cy Young Award.[1][2][3] The Cy Young Award is voted by baseball writers from each city, which critics claim the writers who follow a particular team or player throughout a season are naturally disposed toward voting for him.[4] The Pitcher of the Year Award is given annually to the pitcher in each league judged by Sporting News baseball experts as having had the most outstanding season making it one of the oldest and most prestigious pitching award in Major League Baseball.[5]

History[edit]

The Sporting News (formerly TSN, now SN) established in 1886 is the most respected and legendary magazine newspaper in sports history.[2] The Sporting News established in 1944 the Pitcher of the Year Award. No awards were given in 1946 or 1947, winners of this award are that year's most outstanding pitcher in their league.[2] The Sporting News announced in 2013 a starting pitcher and a relief pitcher from each league. [6][7][8][9]

Hal Newhouser at the age of 23 won the first American Leaque award and Bill Voiselle at the age of 25 won the first National League award.[10][11][12][13] Dwight Gooden at the age of 20 in 1985 is the youngest pitcher to win the award, while Hal Newhouser is the youngest pitcher to win the American League award.[10][11][14][15] Hal Newhouser at the age of 24 in 1945 is the youngest pitcher to win 2 consecutive awards.[10][11] Hal Newhouser (W-L: 26-9, ERA: 1.94, Ks: 275) could have narrowly won the award or tied with Bob Feller (W-L: 26-15, ERA: 2.18, Ks: 348) for a third time in 1946 based upon his statistics.[10][11][16][17][18][19] Tim Lincecum at the age of 25 in 2009 is the youngest pitcher to win 2 consecutive National League awards.[20][21] Fernando Valenzuela, 1981 NL Pitcher, Player and Rookie Pitcher of the Year, only one to win all three Sporting News Awards in the same year.[22][23]

MLB Triple Crown[edit]

Only four Pitcher of the Year Award winners have led the major leagues in wins, ERA and strikeouts which is commonly called Major League Pitching Triple Crown.[24] Sandy Koufax is the only player to achieve it more than once. Koufax achieved it three times in a four year period. Hal Newhouser, age 24 and Dwight Gooden, age 20 were the youngest individuals. Johan Santana, age 27, is the fourth individual.[10][14][24][25][151]

MLB Hall of Fame predictor[edit]

Winning three (3) or more Pitcher of the Year Awards has been seen as a guaranteed admission to the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. All of the eligible pitchers with three or more awards have been elected to the Hall of Fame with the exception of Roger Clemens.[208] Roger Clemens has the most (five) Pitcher of the Year Awards, is in the top ten for all time wins and strikeouts, and is considered to be one of the best pitchers of all time.[209][210][211] Clemens alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs is the major stumbling block to be elected to the Hall of Fame.[212] Three-time winner Pedro Martinez is not yet eligible for the MLB Hall of Fame.

Pitchers that have won three or more Pitcher of the Year Awards and the year they were inducted into Major League Baseball Hall of Fame sorted by the year they entered the Hall of Fame.[207]

Battle of Pitchers of the Year[edit]

It is a rare occurrence when reigning Pitcher of the Year winners face off against each other. A pitching duel occurred on August 28, 1989, when Frank Viola of New York Mets pitched a complete game shutout defeating Orel Hershiser of the Dodgers 1-0.[213] On May 9, 2013 Toronto's R. A. Dickey pitched against David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays won in 10 innings 5-4, neither starting pitcher got a decision.[214]

Organizations[edit]

The Los Angeles Dodgers pitchers have won the Pitcher of the Year Award 5 consecutive years 1962-1966 (Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax). The Los Angeles(Brooklyn) Dodgers pitchers have won the award 13 times and the Atlanta (Boston and Milwaukee) Braves pitchers have won the award 12 times. The Cincinnati Reds, Colorado Rockies, Florida Marlins, Milwaukee Brewers and Texas Rangers are organizations that never had a pitcher win the award.

The Detroit Tigers have three pitchers, Hal Newhouser (1944–45), Denny McLain (1968-69) and Justin Verlander (2011–12) to win consecutive awards. They were also Player of the Year and AL MVP at least once while being Pitcher of the Year.[1][2][215][216]
