Dan Duquette, who is the executive vice president of baseball operations for the Orioles, was given the award on Monday after his leadership in the front office helped the O’s to their best season in 17 years.
Duquette won the award back in 1992 as well, when he was the general manager for the Montreal Expos.
Big signings and roster manipulation carried out by Duquette were crucial to the O’s success this season. Not only did Duquette manage to sign big names like Nelson Cruz and Andrew Miller, he was also able to find players that were disregarded by other teams, players he knew had loads of potential.

What: Gone Girl at Senator Theatre
Where: Senator Theatre
When: Various Show times
Unless you’re one of those people who refuses to watch a film after you’ve already read it in book form, Gone Girl is a must-see, and it’s right here in Baltimore! Based on Gillian Flynnunearths best seller, Gone Girl tells the story of Nick Dunne, whose wife, Amy, has gone missing. When Dunne, played by Ben Affleck, reports his wife’s disappearance, investigations turn what once seemed to be the ideal marriage into a crumbling union of man and wife. Under police and media pressure, Dunne’s lies and odd behavior make him a suspect of the disappearance (murder?) of Amy Dunne. I don’t want to spoil the twisted thriller, so I will say no more. Just head down to Senator Theatre, grab your large popcorn (extra butter!), and your box of “Buncha Crunch”, and enjoy unraveling the mystery! See show times here!
