The 2018 ‘Pitties get under way: Dyson of the Year

New, 16 comments

Time to start putting together our annual awards.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Angels Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

This will be the 13th annual AZ SnakePit awards, where you, the readers, get to choose the winners in a variety of categories, honoring the best of the Arizona Diamondbacks over the past season. If you fancy a stroll down memory lane, the roll of honor listing all the previous winners can be found here. We’ll be running the same categories again this year. The standard process for most of these will be the same. We’ll have an open call for nominations on the Monday, with a few suggestions to get the discussion going. Then on Wednesday, the five most worthy nominees will be posted with a poll, and on Friday, the winner will be announced.

These will be kicking off in earnest in two weeks time, what with next week being the winter meetings and all, so we don’t want the awards to be trampled in the rush there. But we get things under way over the next few days with establishing the nominees for Play of the Year. This is a bit different, because we have several different sub-categories, with the winners of each going into the overall poll, which will go up on December 12th. There are for the best infield play, outfield play (non-Dyson division), double-play, and hit of the year, plus we begin with a special category today. honoring the feats of Jarrod Dyson, who could otherwise occupy all of the available slots himself. To be fair to everyone else, we’ll limit him to one nomination, and that’s what this group is intended to decide.

The nominees in this category are:

June 18 vs. LAA

May 25 vs. OAK

May 22 vs. MIL

May 21 vs. MIL

May 4 vs. HOU
