The Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) has announced their choices for the AL and NL Rookies Of The Year. Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim was elected unanimously by the IBWAA membership as AL Rookie Of The Year—garnering all first place votes. Yoenis Cespedes finished second and Yu Darvish finished third in the overall voting. Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals was named the NL Rookie Of The Year—while Wade Miley and Todd Frazier finished second and third, respectively. The IBWAA was founded in 2009 by Howard Cole, editor of BaseballSavvy.com. Members come from organizations such as MLB.com, Yahoo! Sports, and ESPN. Two members of the FenwayNation staff (the Editor-In-Chief and the Down-Under Editor) are also members of the IBWAA.
