Jim Leyland second in manager of the year voting; Kirk Gibson wins in NL

Joe Maddon won the AL manager of the year award, as you would expect. He picked up all but two first place votes. Tigers manager Jim Leyland earned one of those first-place votes and finished second overall. Leyland earned both the most second and third place votes.

In the National League, former Tiger and Michigan State Spartan Kirk Gibson won in a landslide, earning 28 of 32 first-place votes.
