Davey Johnson added to the Washington Nationals list of postseason awards, winning the National League Manager of the Year by a convincing margin. Johnson, who days before announced he would manage the team again in 2013, received 23 first-place and finished in front of Cincinnati Reds Dusty Baker.
Johnson's win added to a vast collection of 2012 awards won by his players. Johnson won the award one day after Bryce Harper won the NL Rookie of the Year. Adam LaRoche, Ian Desmond, and Stephen Strasburg each won NL Silver Slugger awards and LaRoche also won his first Gold Glove.Baseball, MLB, Washington, Washington Nationals
