Encyclopedia > The Sporting News Rookie of the Year Award

The Sporting News Rookie of the Year Award was established in 1946 by The Sporting News (TSN).

  • In 1949 and since 1951, TSN has given an award to a player from each league.
  • From 1963 through 2003, TSN split the rookie award into two separate categories:
    • Rookie Pitcher of the Year
    • Rookie Player of the Year
  • In 2004 those two awards were discontinued in favor of the unified award below.

This is the list of ballplayers awarded by year, name, team, league and position.
