Rookie of the Year Winners

     The Jackie Robinson Award (so named since 1987) is given to the individual player from each League during his first year of eligibility.  Eligibility requirements were set forth in 1971 - a rookie is formally defined as a player with less than 130 at-bats, a pitcher with less than 50 innings pitched, or anyone with less than 45 days on any Major League roster.

     In 1947 and 1948, only one winner was selected from the Major Leagues. From 1949 on, two players have been selected each year one coming from each league, respectively.  

     The winner of the award is determined by a vote conducted by a panel of members of the Baseball Writers Association of America.  Each voter names three rookies on his or her ballot.  A first place place vote equals 5 points, second place equals 3 points, and third place gets 1 point.  Those points are totaled and the winner is announced at the completion of the season.
