Shildt was named interim manager for the team after the Cardinals fired Mike Matheny 93 games into the 2018 season. He became the first manager to ever win the award without having any prior playing experience.

Shildt is the Cardinal’s third manager in history to earn this honor. 以前ly, Whitney Herzog was named Manager of the Year in 1985 and Tony La Russa won the award in 2002.
Shildt said that this award is not about him but about an award for his team and his players.

在38岁，BALDELLI is the youngest manager to win the Managers of the Year award. He’s also the eight rookie manager to achieve this feat. He led the Twins to a 101-61 record in his first season.
Baldelli said his first year was challenging yet rewarding without having much experience as manager.
Baldelli finished with the same amount of first-place votes as New York Yankees manager, Aaron Boone. But it was the Twins manager who won the honor after receiving more second-place votes from the 棒球 Writers’ Association.
The Twins’ series came to an end after the New York Yankees swept them in the American League Division Series.
Baledelli is humbled by this award and credits his team.
