Terry Francona

Terry Francona, the manager of the Cleveland Guardians, was announced as the American League Manager of the Year for 2022 on Tuesday. Francona, who led the Guardians to the MLB playoffs from the bench after winning the American League Central division with a 92-70 record, is quite deserving of this accolade.

The Guardians manager made sure that he would have a chance to mention his grandkids before the show ended during an interview on the MLB Network.

“Tito was ending off his MLB Network interview after receiving the AL Manager of the Year award. When they are about to go to a commercial, Tito interrupts them and requests permission to scream out his grandchildren first. It almost feels too healthy to handle.

Francona has previously taken home the esteemed prize. After all, he has won the prize three times, each time with the Guardians. The 63-year-old Francona received 17 first-place votes in total, earning him 112 points. Scott Servais of the Seattle Mariners and Brandon Hyde of the Baltimore Orioles came in second and third, respectively, in the vote.

The Guardians were able to far outperform expectations under Francona. Because of their youth and the fact that they weren’t anticipated to compete for a playoff place, the Guardians instead improved on their 80-82 record in 2021 and won the AL Central for the first time since 2018.

As a wild-card team, the Guardians made it to the playoffs, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Wild-Card round before falling to the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series in five games.
