LEGENDS LEAGUE Cy Young Award Vote Tally

Robin Roberts The Legends League Cy Young Award voting quickly ran to a contest between two pitchers: Robin Roberts and Greg Maddux. Surprisingly, Fergie Jenkins, who pitched so prominently during the season, did not receive a single first-place vote. However, Jenkins did capture third place overall with 15% of the total vote. But the main event had Robin Roberts being crowned as the first-ever Legends League Cy Young Award Winner. Roberts captured 33% of the total vote, and 46% of the first-place votes. Greg Maddux snared 25% of the total vote for himself, and 38% of the first-placers.

Roberts led the Legends League in Winning Percentage (.789), Opponent On-Base Pct (.262), Quality Start Pct. (.720) and In-Play Average (.222). He was 2nd in Wins (tied-15), Opponent BA (.217), Hits/9 (7.2) and Runners/9 (9.4). He was 3rd in ERA (2.97) & Walks/9 (2.0) while being in the Top Ten on several other pitching lists.

Troy Percival (11%) and Larry Jansen (4%) were the only other pitchers to receive first-place votes, one each. An interesting note is that Robin Roberts also received a vote for the MVP Award.
