In a year that saw some incredible performances there was no easier Major League Baseball award to be given out than the American League Comeback Player of the Year Award that went to Trey Mancini of the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night.
Mancini, a former Notre Dame star, returned to the Orioles after missing the entire 2020 season after being diagnosed with colon cancer during spring training. Mancini hit 21 home runs and batted in 71 runs in 147 games this season.
Mancini also made a splash during the All-Star Game festivities in Colorado when he finished second in the home run derby to Pete Alonso of the New York Mets.
Congratulations to Mancini for an incredible return to the field in 2021!
