Gold Glove Award

Gold Glove Award

For the amateur boxing competition, see Golden Gloves.

The Rawlings Gold Glove Award, usually referred to as the Gold Glove, is the award given annually to the Major League Baseball players judged to have exhibited superior individual fielding performances at each fielding position in both the National League (NL) and the American League (AL), as voted by the managers and coaches in each league.[1] Managers are not permitted to vote for their own players.[1] Eighteen Gold Gloves are awarded each year (with the exception of 1957, 1985 and 2007), one at each of the nine positions in each league. In 1957, the baseball glove manufacturer Rawlings created the Gold Glove Award to commemorate the best fielding performance at each position.[2] The award was created from a glove made from gold lamé-tanned leather and affixed to a walnut base.[3] Initially, only one Gold Glove per position was awarded to the top fielder at each position in Major League Baseball;[2] however, separate awards were given for the National and American Leagues beginning in 1958.[4][5]

For the first four seasons of the award (1957 to 1960), individual awards were presented to left fielders, center fielders, and right fielders. From 1961 through 2010, the phrase "at each position" was no longer strictly accurate, since the prize was presented to three outfielders irrespective of their specific position.[6] Any combination of outfielders, often three center fielders, could win the award in the same year.[7][8] Critics called for awarding a single Gold Glove for each individual outfield position, arguing that the three outfield positions are not equivalent defensively.[8] Starting in 2011, separate awards for each outfield position were once again presented.[7] In the 1985 American League voting, a tie for third place resulted in the presentation of Gold Glove Awards to four outfielders (Dwayne Murphy, Gary Pettis, Dwight Evans and Dave Winfield); this scenario was repeated in the National League in 2007 (Andruw Jones, Carlos Beltrán, Aaron Rowand, and Jeff Francoeur).

The Boston Globe writer Peter Abraham said the Fielding Bible Awards "are far more accurate (and accountable)" than the Gold Glove awards since statistics are used along with the opinions of an expert panel. The Gold Gloves are selected by managers and coaches that may have seen a player as few as six times during the season.[9] Bill Chuck of Comcast SportsNet New England wrote that Gold Glove voters frequently counted only errors to determine winners.[10] Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times said the votes for the Gold Gloves rely largely on a player's past reputation.[11] The Associated Press wrote that "some fans have viewed the Gold Gloves as mostly a popularity contest, even suggesting that a player's performance at the plate helped draw extra attention to his glove."[12] After winning the AL Gold Glove at first base in both 1997 and 1998, Rafael Palmeiro won again in 1999 with the Texas Rangers while only appearing in 28 games as a first baseman; he played in 128 games as a designated hitter that season, resulting in a controversy.[10][13][14][15] Derek Jeter, winner of multiple Gold Gloves, believes that many defensive factors cannot be quantified.[16]

The most Gold Gloves ever won by one player is 18 by pitcher Greg Maddux. He won 13 consecutive awards from 1990 to 2002, all in the National League.[17] Brooks Robinson has the most wins as a third baseman, with 16 Gold Gloves,[18] and is tied for the second-highest total overall with pitcher Jim Kaat, who won his 16 awards consecutively.[19] Iván Rodríguez has won the most Gold Gloves as a catcher, with 13 career awards in the American League.[20] Ozzie Smith has 13 wins at shortstop; he and Rodríguez are tied for the fourth-highest total among all winners.[21] Among outfielders, Roberto Clemente and Willie Mays, who played primarily right field and center field, respectively, are tied for the lead with 12 Gold Gloves.[22][23] Keith Hernandez, the leader at first base, has won 11 times,[24] and Roberto Alomar leads second basemen with 10 wins.[25] Other players with 10 or more wins include shortstop Omar Vizquel (11),[26] catcher Johnny Bench (10),[27] third baseman Mike Schmidt (10),[28] and outfielders Ken Griffey, Jr., Ichiro Suzuki, Andruw Jones, and Al Kaline (10 each).[29][30][31][32]

The only player to win Gold Gloves as an infielder and outfielder is Darin Erstad, who won Gold Gloves as an outfielder in 2000 and 2002 and as a first baseman in 2004, all with the Anaheim Angels.[33] The only other player to win Gold Gloves at multiple positions is Plácido Polanco, who won at second base (2007, 2009 AL) and third base (2011 NL).[34] Family pairs to win Gold Gloves include brothers Ken and Clete Boyer (third base),[35][36] brothers Sandy Alomar, Jr. (catcher) and Roberto Alomar (second base),[25] Bengie and Yadier Molina (catcher),[37][38] father and son Bobby and Barry Bonds (outfield),[39][40] and father and son Bob (catcher) and Bret Boone (second base).[41][42]

Platinum Glove Award

In 2011, Rawlings added a Platinum Glove Award for each league, voted on by the fans.[43]

All-time Gold Glove Team

On February 20, 2007, Major League Baseball and Rawlings announced that an all-time Gold Glove Team would be named during the 50th anniversary of the first Gold Glove Awards.[44] Rawlings asked 70 baseball reporters, former players and former managers to select 50 names for the ballot, from an initial selection of 250 names.[45] The team was selected by fans, who voted at the Rawlings Gold Glove website, at United States Postal Service offices, and at sporting goods stores. The results were announced at the 2007 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.[46]

Teammates

Middle infield duos

In the history of the Gold Glove Award, there have been ten double-play combinations, or pairs of middle infielders,[47] that have won awards in the same year. Shortstops and second basemen depend upon each other for the majority of double plays. The most common type of double play occurs with a runner on first base and a ground ball hit towards the middle of the infield. The player fielding the ball (generally the shortstop or second baseman) throws to the fielder covering second base, who steps on the base before the runner from first arrives to force that runner out, and then throws the ball to the first baseman to force out the batter for the second out.[48] Mark Belanger won four Gold Gloves with the Baltimore Orioles alongside winning partner Bobby Grich, and Joe Morgan paired with Dave Concepción for four combination wins with the Cincinnati Reds. The most recent teammates to accomplish the feat are Derek Jeter and Robinson Canó, who won with the New York Yankees in 2010.

Batteries

Iván Rodríguez and Kenny Rogers won Gold Gloves as batterymates in 2000 and 2006.

Since 1957, there have been five Gold Glove batteries. The pitcher and catcher, collectively known as the battery, are the only two players on the field involved in every pitch. In particular, the pitcher and catcher control the running game with tools such as pickoffs or the strength of the catcher's throwing arm.[71] The first pitcher and catcher on the same team to win Gold Gloves in the same year were Jim Kaat and Earl Battey, with the Minnesota Twins in 1962. Only two pairs of batterymates have won Gold Gloves together more than once: Iván Rodríguez and Kenny Rogers won with the Texas Rangers in 2000, and again with the Detroit Tigers in 2006. Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright matched the feat, winning in both 2009 and 2013.
