Trey Mancini basically won Comeback Player of the Year by virtue of the fact that he stepped on the field with the Baltimore Orioles this year. But last night it became official, as he was voted to that honor by the Baseball Writers Association of America. You might remember he was given a similar award a few weeks ago. That was voted by the players. This one comes from the writers.
Mancini of course came back after being treated for stage three colon cancer in 2020. His story was about as uplifting as uplifting can be. Not only did he come back, but he had a great season in doing so. However neither playing this year, nor winning this award is the highlight of Trey Mancini’s FY2021. He also got engaged to his fiance, former MASN reporter Sara Pearlman. Congrats to the happy couple, and to the 2021 Comeback Player of the Year, Trey Mancini!
