The annual Greg Spira Memorial Internet Baseball Awards (IBA) are based on fan voting.[1] They were founded in 1991 by Greg Spira with the Most Valuable Player, Cy Young (now Pitcher of the Year), and Rookie of the Year awards, in each of the two leagues in Major League Baseball.[2] In 1998, an award for Manager of the Year was added in each league. Spira managed the awards until his death at the end of 2011.[2] The awards were then named in his memory.[3]

Winners[edit]

Since 1998, eight awards have been given each year. From 1991 to 1997, there were six awards each year.
