Chicago Cubs Players Who Have Won Major Awards

Gold Glove Award Won By Chicago Cubs Players

In 1957, baseball glove manufacturer Rawlings presented Gold Gloves The Sporting News All-Fielding Team. A panel of sportswriters selected one player for each position in the major leagues. In 1958 major league players took over the voting, awarding gold gloves for each position in each league. Starting in 1961, three outfielders were chosen regardless of whether they played left field, center field or right field. Major league managers and coaches took over the voting in 1966.

Chalmers Award Won By Chicago Cubs Players

Named after automobile manufacturer Hugh Chalmers, the 1911 award was given to the player with the highest batting average in each league. From 1912 to 1914, the recipient was chosen by a committee of baseball writers, presented to the “most important and useful player to his club and to the league.” The award was discontinued until 1922, when the American League honored “the baseball player who is of greatest all-around service to his club.” Voters selected one player from each team and were not allowed to vote for player-managers. Previous winners were ineligible for consideration. The American League dropped the award after the 1928 season. The National League resumed its Chalmers Award (without the flawed restrictions favored by the American League) in 1924, eliminating the award after the 1929 season.

Frank Schulte – 1911
Rogers Hornsby – 1929

Most Valuable Player Award Won By Chicago Cubs Players

The American League didn’t offer any form of an award for a “most valuable player” from 1929 to 1930. The National League had no such award for the 1930 season. The modern MVP award was created in 1931 by the Baseball Writers Association of America. A ten-place ballot was filled out by one writer in each league city. A player receiving a first-place vote received ten points, a player receiving a second-place vote received nine points, and so on. Starting in 1938, three writers were polled in each league city, with first-place vote recipients being awarded 14 points. Since 1961, voting has been relegated to only two writers per league city.

Cy Young Award Won By Chicago Cubs Players

The Cy Young Award was created in 1956 by the Baseball Writers Association of America, honoring the best pitcher in the major leagues. It was named after Cy Young, the all-time leader in pitching wins, who died in 1955. Starting in 1967, one winner was selected for each league. The original one-place ballot was replaced by a three-place ballot in 1970.

Ferguson Jenkins – 1971
Bruce Sutter – 1979
Rick Sutcliffe – 1984
Greg Maddux – 1992

Rookie Of The Year Award Won By Chicago Cubs Players

The Rookie of the Year Award was established nationally by the Baseball Writers Association of America in 1947. One rookie was honored in 1947 and 1948. Starting in 1949, one rookie in each league received the award. From 1947 to 1956, there was considerable confusion concerning which players should be considered rookies. Standards were established in 1957. From 1971 through today, the standard for a player no longer being considered a rookie is the accumulation of 130 at bats, 50 innings pitched, or a specific amount of time on the major league roster. A one-ballot system was used through 1979. A three-ballot system has been employed since 1980.
