Gold Glove Pitchers

MLB Pitchers 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 pitcher's position.

"Most pitchers are too smart to manage." - Gold Glove Award Recipient (1976 through 1979) & Hall of Fame Pitcher Jim Palmer

Rawlings Gold Glove Award



Jim Kaat was in a league by himself defensively yet he was never "seriously" considered for a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Greg Maddux is in that same league (defensive, but also has more than 300 Wins ) and is the only pitcher in Major League history to sweep an actual decade (1990-1999) of Gold Gloves.

Did you know that Bobby Shantz was the first pitcher to win a Gold Glove Award from both the American League ( 1957 ) and National League ( 1961 )?

Not one pitcher has ever won a Gold Glove Award during their rookie season. Do you think one will? Share your thoughts on our message board .
