Royals manager Tony Pena was responsible for one of baseball’s most impressive one-year turnarounds in 2003. Yesterday he was named the American League Manger of the Year. In 2002 the Royals went 63-100 and this year they were 83-79 and started the season with a 9-0 record. Pena’s the first manager to win the award with a third-place team. He was named the Royals manager in 2002 after Tony Muser was fired mid-way through the season. He was humbled by the award saying it belonged to his players. Marlins skipper Jack McKeon won the National League Manager of the Year.
