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.

Craig Michael Kimbrel (born May 28, 1988) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball (MLB). He is a six-time All-Star, and the youngest pitcher in MLB history to record 300 saves. He is known for the speed of his fastball, as well as his unique and intimidating pre-pitch stare. Listed at 6 feet 0 inches (1.83 m) and 210 pounds (95 kg), he both throws and bats right-handed. As a rookie with the Atlanta Braves in 2011, Kimbrel was named their closer, and set an MLB record for saves by a rookie, with 46. He was awarded the National League's 2011 Rookie of the Year Award. He led the National League in saves for four consecutive seasons, 2011 through 2014. He recorded his 200th save in June 2015 with the San Diego Padres, and his 300th save in May 2018 with the Boston Red Sox.
