Continuing on with the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) 2011 end of the year awards, we now know who they have selected as their 2011 AL and NL Manager of the Year.

In the American League, the BBWAA has chosen Tampa Bay Rays skipper  Joe Maddon as their winner.  And in the NL, they have chosen Arizona Diamondbacks skipper Kirk Gibson.

Maddon led his Rays team on a historic comeback as they overcame a nine game deficit in the AL Wild Card standings and made the playoffs on the final day of the 2011 season. This is the second AL Manager of the Year Award for Maddon, the first coming after the 2008 season.

Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona did not receive any votes.

This was Gibson's first full year managing the Diamondbacks and all he did was help lead them to the NL West title, a year after they finished in last place.

Next up in the BBWAA awards will be the NL Cy Young Award tomorrow. The final two awards, the AL & NL MVP will be presented next Monday, November 21st (AL MVP) and Tuesday, November 22nd (NL MVP). The 2011 AL & NL Rookie of the Year Awards were presented on Monday and the AL Cy Young Award on Tuesday.
