• The Philadelphia chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America announced its annual award winners Tuesday. Domonic Brown won the Mike Schmidt Award for Most Valuable Player, Cliff Lee won the Steve Carlton Award for Most Valuable Pitcher, Charlie Manuel won the Dallas Green Award for Special Achievement for his 1,000th managerial victory and Kevin Frandsen won the Tug McGraw Award for True Professionalism.

• The late scout Eddie Bockman was honored before Tuesday's game as the winner of the 2013 Dallas Green Award. Bockman, who died in 2011, worked as a scout with the Phillies from 1960 to 1991. He signed Phillies like Larry Bowa, Bob Boone, Bob Walk, Ricky Jordan, Randy Lerch, Buck Martinez and John Vukovich.

"Eddie was one of the best scouts we have ever had in our organization," Green said. "He was an old-timer and a great evaluator of talent that knew the game inside and out. He fought very hard for his guys and his area."

Bockman's sister, Lois Bockman, and his nephew, Gary Bockman, accepted the award on his behalf.

Each year, the club presents the award to an amateur or professional scout who best exemplifies the Phillies' standard for scouting while demonstrating the same loyalty, work ethic, dedication and passion as the award's namesake.
