Cleveland Indians catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. is announced as the unanimous winner of the American League Rookie of the Year Award.
Alomar became just the third player to be elected by a unanimous vote (Carlton Fisk, Mark McGwire). He hit .290 in his first season in Cleveland with nine home runs and 66 RBI. He was voted to his first of three straight Midsummer Classic starts during the season.
Alomar remains the most recent winner of the award in Cleveland.
