Nats’ Williams, Orioles’ Showalter win Manager of Year Awards | MLB.com

Showalter, who received 25 first-place votes, became just the fourth manager to win the Award at least three times, joining Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa (who each won it on four occasions), and Lou Piniella. Along with La Russa, Showalter is one of just two skippers to win with three different teams.
Williams, meanwhile, made some history of his own, taking home the award in his first season at the helm. He is now the fourth rookie manager to win the award, joining Hal Lanier (1986 Astros), Dusty Baker (‘93 Giants) and Joe Girardi (2006 Marlins). Williams earned 18 of the 30 first-place votes.
