Gold Glove Catchers

MLB Catchers who won a Gold Glove Award

The Gold Glove Award was first presented by the St. Louis-based Rawlings corporation in 1957 to honor the eighteen best fielders at their positions. Rawlings used a combination of defensive statistics along with visual effect to determine the winner and honored the recipient with a large gold glove. Voting is currently done by the managers and coaches from each Major League team who are NOT able to select their own players. Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive list of Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners at the catcher's position.

"I never saw him (Roberto Clemente) play, other than on television in the 1971 World Series, but I heard so much about him from people who did see him play. They talked about the way he played the game. That is why this award (2004 Roberto Clemente) means so much to me. It is more about making a contribution off the field instead of on the field." - Edgar Martinez

Rawlings Gold Glove Award



Johnny Bench , who won ten consecutive Gold Gloves (1968-1977), is truly in a league by himself defensively and he was enshrined into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on his first ballot. Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez matched that feat in the American League winning ten consecutive Gold Gloves (1992-2001) — will he be enshrined on his first ballot? Share your opinion on Baseball Fever .

Did you know that Bob Boone was the first catcher to win a Gold Glove Award from both the American (1982 & 1986-1989) and National League (1978 & 1979)?

Johnny Bench (1968), Carlton Fisk (1972) and Charles Johnson (1995) each won Gold Glove Awards during their rookie season — the elite three.
