Since 1931,it has been awarded by the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA). Until 2020,the winners received the Kenesaw Mountain Landis Memorial Baseball Award,which became the official name of the award in 1944,in honor of the first MLB commissioner,Kenesaw Mountain Landis,who served from 1920 until his death on November 25,1944. Starting in 2020,Landis’name no longer appeared on the MVP trophy after the BBWAA received complaints from several former MVP winners about the late Commissioner’s role against integration of MLB.
