In conjunction with the Baseball Bloggers Alliance Awards voting, the Kansas City Chapter of the BBA has nominated Joe Maddon for the Connie Mack Award as their American League Manager of the Year. He was a consensus choice after leading the young Tampa Bay Rays to the AL wild card, overcoming a nine game deficit in September.
Ron Washington, last year’s winner, was second in the KC BBA voting. Jim Leyland finished third.
The BBA exists to foster increased discussion, communication and collaboration among baseball blogs.
