The Annual New York Baseball Writers' Association of America Celebration BBWAA Awards Celebration, presented by Esurance will air at 10 p.m. ET and will be simulcast on MLB.com. The one-hour telecast will honor the 2015 recipients of the BBWAA Awards -- Josh Donaldson, Bryce Harper, Dallas Keuchel, Jake Arrieta, Carlos Correa, Kris Bryant, Jeff Banister and Joe Maddon. Additional honors ranging from the Postseason MVP for Royals closer Wade Davis to a posthumous Yogi Berra tribute will be further reason to make it a Network doubleheader, where blue-chippers lead to black tie. The annual BBWAA Awards Dinner had to be scaled back as the snow blanketed Manhattan, but it still offers a chance to relive the greatness that rose out of 2015, a last look back before Spring Training calls us again.

BBWAA Awards Celebration - Darryl Kile - Netflix
Darryl Andrew Kile (December 2, 1968 – June 22, 2002) was an American Major League Baseball starting pitcher. He pitched from 1991 to 2002 for three different teams in his career. In his first season for the Cardinals, he won 20 games in 2000 as the team reached the postseason for the first time in four years. They advanced to the playoffs in the next two seasons. Kile was known for his sharp, big-breaking curveball. He died of coronary disease in Chicago, where he and the Cardinals were staying for a weekend series against the Chicago Cubs. He was the first active major league player to die during the regular season since 1979, when the New York Yankees' Thurman Munson died in an aviation accident.
BBWAA Awards Celebration - Houston Astros - Netflix
Kile was selected by the Houston Astros in the 30th round of the 1987 Major League draft. Having been successful with the Tucson Toros, the Astros' AAA club in the Pacific Coast League, Kile entered the majors in 1991, going 7–11 in 22 starts. In his first major league start on April 24, 1991, Kile had a no-hitter going when he was lifted after six innings by manager Art Howe, who wanted to protect the 22-year-old rookie's arm. Kile's breakthrough year came in 1993 when he went 15–8 with a 3.51 earned run average and made the All-Star team. On September 8, Kile pitched a no-hitter against the New York Mets. He pitched seven seasons with the Astros, mostly as a starter. Another strong season was 1997, when he went 19–7, compiled a 2.57 ERA, made the All-Star team again, threw a career-high 255 2⁄3 innings, and pitched four shutouts. He finished fifth in voting for the NL Cy Young Award. Kile made his first postseason appearance in Game 1 of the 1997 National League Division Series against the Atlanta Braves, giving up only two hits but suffering a hard-luck 2–1 loss. Atlanta swept Houston in the best-of-five series.
