MLB Rookie of the Year Award Winners

The Rookie of the Year Award is given annually to one player in each league. The award was established in 1947, and given to just one major-league player in each of 1947 and 1948. It was expanded in 1949 to honor the best rookie in each of the American and National Leagues. Until 1957, voters used their own judgment to determine who should be considered a rookie. From 1957, players were considered rookies if they had fewer than 75 at-bats or 45 innings pitched prior to the season. This was later amended to 90 at-bats, 45 innings pitched, or 45 days of MLB service time. In 1971, the standard was adjusted to 130 at-bats, 50 innings pitched, or 45 days of non-September service time, which remains the standard for the award today. The Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) votes on the MVP award at the conclusion of each season before the postseason starts.
