2017 Gold Gloves

November 8, 2017

 

Gold Glove Award

After all these years I still associate “Golden Gloves” with youth boxing. It was a big deal when I was younger (although I had enough sense not to participate). But the baseball people now use s version the term for their “All Glove” team. This year’s roll out of the post season awards begins with the Gold Gloves. Here’s this year’s team (American League listed first):

pitcher Marcus Stroman/Zack Grienke

catcher Martin Maldonado/Tucker Barnett

first base Eric Hosmer/Paul Goldschmidt

second base Brian Dozier/DJ LeMahieu

shortstop Andrelton Simmons/Brandon Crawford

third base Evan Longoria/Nolan Arenado

left field Alex Gordon/Marcell Ozuna

center field Byron Buxton/Ender Inciarte

right field Mookie Betts/Jason Heyward

If you’re keeping track, in the AL the Twins, Royals, and Angels all put two players on the squad. In the National League both the Diamondbacks and Rockies place two players on the team.
