The Baltimore Orioles were honored before Wednesday’s game by MLB with two GIBBYs (Greatness in Baseball Yearly Awards).
The GIBBYs have been doled out to the very best players and teams for 11 years.
They honor the greatest players, moments, managers and accomplishments of a season. The voters include members of the media, front-office personnel, MLB alumni, fans who log on to MLB.com and experts from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).
Showalter was named 2012 Manager of the Year and the Orioles received the award for the Best Storyline (you may know it simply as BUCKle Up).
Showalter and EVP of baseball operations Dan Duquette accepted the awards on behalf of the organization in an on-field ceremony just before Wednesday’s first pitch.
