  1. ^ MLB appears to have dropped the Rolaids Relief Man of the Year Award as an official MLB award, after the 2006 season. Relief Man Award winners (1976-2006). Awards (The Official Site of MLB's Honors and Accolades). MLB Advanced Media, L.P. (MLB.com). Retrieved 2010-06-09. Established in 1976, it does not appear on the MLB.com awards page for the most recent completed season. 2010 Awards. MLB Advanced Media, L.P. Retrieved 2011-08-21. The MLB Delivery Man of the Year Award (initially sponsored by DHL) was first given in 2005 and does appear on the MLB.com awards page for the most recent completed season. Prior to both awards, in 1960, The Sporting News established its Fireman of the Year Award, to recognize the best closer from each league. In 2001, the award was broadened to include all relievers and was re-named The Sporting News Reliever of the Year Award. In 2002, MLB began its This Year in Baseball Awards (TYIB Awards) (for all of MLB, not for each league), including Pitcher of the Year and Setup Man of the Year. In 2004, a Closer of the Year category was added and "Pitcher of the Year" was re-named "Starting Pitcher of the Year". In or about 2000, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum began its Hilton Smith Legacy Award for "Relievers of the Year".
