I know the NL championship trophy is called the Warren C. Giles trophy. But I cannot find the name of the AL one. Maybe it is just called the American League Championship trophy.

Officially known as the William Harridge Trophy (named after the former AL President who served from 1931-1959), it is presented annually to the playoff winner of Major League Baseball's American League. Since the inception of the league in 1901 until 1968 the award was presented to the regular season winner of the American League, and since 1969 has gone to the playoff champion. The actual piece of hardware has been presented since 1969, prior to that a pennant was presented to the champion. In 1994 no winner was declared due to a labor dispute, however the New York Yankees were the regular season leaders at the time.

The funny thing is, when JR was handed the trophy I could have sworn that the lady giving it to him called it the Willie Harris Trophy!!!
