National League

Dusty Baker proved to be as popular with IBA voters
as he is with the national media, running away and
hiding to win his first IBA Manager of the Year crown.

Tony LaRussa beat out Bobby Cox for the runner-up
slot, although Cox received more first-place votes
than LaRussa.

Perhaps reflecting a season in which no managers
were fired, all 16 National League managers
appeared on at least one ballot.

American League

By less than 100 points, Jerry Manuel nipped
Art Howe to win the IBA AL Manager of the Year
award. Howe actually appeared on 44 more ballots
than Manuel, but Manuel’s large edge in first-
place votes (353 to 273) made the difference.

Three of the four AL West managers (Howe, Mike
Scioscia and Lou Piniella) finished in the
top four in the voting.

As in the National League, all 14 managers
received at least some consideration.
