Detroit Tigers' team president and general manager Dave Dombrowski took home the John Schuerholz Award on Thursday.

Honored for completing his 25th season as a general manager in the league, Detroit Tigers' team president and general manager Dave Dombrowski was given the John Schuerholz Award on Thursday, MLB Public Relations reported.

The 56-year-old Dombrowski started his career with the Chicago White Sox in 1978, and quickly rose to become the youngest general manager in the baseball with the Montreal Expos 10 years later.

Since taking over full control of the Tigers, Dombrowski's teams have posted a winning record in six of his 11 years on the job with three playoff appearances:
