On November 27, 1956 — After winning the MVP last week and the Rookie of the Year in 1949, Brooklyn starter Don Newcombe (27-7, 3.06) receives major league baseball’s first Cy Young Award. Only one pitcher will be selected each season for this prestigious pitching award until 1967 when each league will name a winner. Newcombe received 10 of the possible 16 first place votes. Sal Maglie received 4 and future hall of famers Whitey Ford and Warren Spahn received 1 each.
The Dodgers’ director of Community Affairs remains the only player in baseball history to have won all three major postseason awards.
