Introducing the American League Sophomore of the Year Award

What if there was a trophy awarded to the best second-year player in the MLB? What if I told you there used to be an award for Sophomore of the Year in Major League Baseball? Beginning in 1953, and discontinued due to lack of interest after the 1962 season, the award was given to the player who outperformed his counterparts during their second full season of action.
