Farrell, Cherington sweep awards PDF Print E-mail
John Farrell and Ben Cherington, who combined forces to lead the Red Sox to the 2013 World Championship, have been named Major League Manager of the Year and Major League Executive of the Year by the Boston Chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America.
 
They, other winners from the Red Sox and Major League Baseball will be honored, at the 75th Annual Awards Dinner, presented by New Balance and the Sports Museum of New England.
 
It is the first time the Red Sox have swept those two awards since 1986 when John McNamara was Manager of the Year and Lou Gorman was Executive of the Year.
 
Farrell was Boston's pitching coach when it won the 2007 World Series and eventually moved on to manage the Blue Jays before returning to Boston. Cherington, a New Hampshire native, moved up through the ranks of the Sox' baseball operations department and took over as GM for the 2012 season. The trade he made with the Dodgers late that season in which Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto went to LA is considered to be one of the best deals in franchise history.

The dinner is set for 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at The Westin Copley Place Hotel in Boston. Tickets are on sale for $200 each or $2,000 for a table of 10 and can be purchased online by credit card at The Sports Museum website or by calling 617-624-1231.
