MLB Mariano Rivera, Trevor Hoffman, & Rolaids Relief Award Winners

The Rolaids Relief Man of the Year was issued from 1976 to 2012 to the best relief pitcher in each league. Beginning in 2014, each league's best reliever has been honored annually with the Reliever of the Year Award, named the Mariano Rivera AL Reliever of the Year Award and Trevor Hoffman NL Reliever of the Year Award. The Reliever of the Year Awards are voted on by a panel of retired relief pitchers, while the Rolaids Relief Man of the Year winner was chosen using a point system, taking into account how many saves, wins, losses, and blown saves the pitcher recorded.
