Rookie of the Year: Garret Anderson, Angels. Called up from Triple A on June 7, Anderson has hit .331 with 15 homers and 66 RBIs. He should become the first American League Rookie of the Year who started the season in the minor leagues since the Mariners' Alvin Davis in 1984.
That's All, Folks! Bud Black, Indians; Kirk Gibson, Tigers; John Kruk, White Sox; Jack Morris, Indians; Dave Stewart, A's; Mitch Williams, Astros; and the inimitable Don Zimmer, Rockies (left). Rather than hang on until Oct. 1, they all retired at various times during the season. Zimmer had spent a total of 35 seasons as a major league player, coach and manager. Also, Detroit second baseman Lou Whitaker has announced he's through after next week. Other players who have talked about retiring but are apparently still mulling it over: Tiger infielder Alan Trammell; Henke of the Cards; and reliever Mike Henneman, a former Tiger who's now with the Astros.
Bloody Glove Award: Jose Offerman, Dodgers. In his sixth year as a major league shortstop, Offerman racked up more errors (35) than RBIs (33), then lost his starting job to rookie Chad Fonville in the middle of a pennant race. Unlike Buhner, Offerman was selected to play in the All-Star Game.
