Buck Showalter, who led the Orioles to their first American League East title since 1997, won his third A.L. Manager of the Year award on Tuesday night.


For the second time in three seasons, Orioles manager Buck Showalter is a finalist for American League Manager of the Year.


In 2012, Buck Showalter won The Sporting News’ Manager of the Year Award and lost the Baseball Writers award to Oakland’s Bob Melvin.


As he waits to hear if he’ll be manager of the year for the third time, Buck Showalter can appreciate his place among major league managers.
