The award of honor given to the best pitcher in the major leagues was disgraced.
On November 17 last year (Korean time), the pitchers for the Cy Young Award in both leagues were announced. In the American League, veteran Justin Verlander (Houston) won the Cy Young Award for the third time in his personal career and the first time in three years. All 30 first place votes went to Verlander. Verlander pitched well last year with an average ERA of 1.75 in 28 games, 18 wins and 4 losses.
The National League Cy Young Award was won by Sandy Alcantara (Miami). Alcantara recorded 14 wins and 9 losses with an ERA of 2.28 in 32 games. Alcantara also received the unanimous honor by sweeping 30 first place votes. Alcantara received a sai video for the first time in his life.
The Cy Young Award ceremony was held on the 29th of this month. Ballander and Alcantara attended the Cy Young Award ceremony held by the BBWAA in New York, USA, and received congratulations with a plaque in their arms. ‘The Man Who Has It All’ Verlander was with his wife, popular model Katie Upton.
The problem was the Cy Young Award plaque they proudly held and posed for. On the plaque, the sentence ‘First Presented to Don Newcombe’ and the phrase ‘Most Valuble pitcher’ are written. ‘ was written on it.
When the photos were released, criticism towards the BBWAA poured out locally스포츠토토 . The association itself dropped the weight of the prestigious Cy Young Award, which all pitchers want every year. ‘The Score’ explained, “It’s like an accident that happened when the phrase was changed for the first time this year from the original phrase, ‘The oustanding league pitcher’.”
The association had a fatal accident, but the players didn’t care much. Verlander, who became the third winner of the Sai video, and Alcantara, who received the first Cy video in his debut, held up the plaque with a proud expression throughout the awards ceremony, took commemorative photos, and enjoyed the event.
