Warren Spahn Award
The Oklahoma Sports Museum honors the best left-handed pitcher in Major League baseball each year by presenting them with the Warren Spahn Award. "This year we are pleased to remind fans of the legendary accomplishments of Oklahoman Warren Spahn by honoring the most dominant pitcher in baseball,'' said Richard Hendricks, OSM president. "Spahn pitched some dominant World Series wins against the New York Yankees. (Randy) Johnson pitched a dominant World Series in 2001 and won his first mythical pitching Triple Crown this past year.''
Since the award's inception in 1999 to honor the legacy of Oklahoman Warren Spahn, who is the winningest lefty ever, it has been dominated by one particular left-handed "Unit", but in 2003 a new southpaw is king. To that end, Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the recipients of the Warren Spahn Award.
