Luis Gonzalez Award

The Arizona Diamondbacks Team Spirit Award

The Luis Gonzalez Award was instituted in 2004, and is named for Luis Gonzalez, a franchise legend who spent 8 years in the organization.

The Luis Gonzalez Award is given annually to the D-backs player who best exemplifies the talents, spirit and heart of the D-backs legend both on and off the field, as voted by his teammates, coaches, and staff members.

" Paul Goldschmidt is an MVP both on the field and off. While his talents as a player often go unnoticed by the national media, so does his approach to giving back and that is by design. He never wants the recognition or the attention but he is a true leader for our team and the community." - Luis Gonzalez (09/25/2018, Paul Goldschmidt wins fourth annual Luis Gonzalez Award , Press Release)

In 2018, Paul Goldschmidt was named to his sixth All-Star Game, the most Midsummer Classic appearances by any current or former Arizona Diamondbacks player, one more than Luis Gonzalez himself!
On August 7, 2010, Luis Gonzalez had his #20 retired by the Arizona Diamondbacks , the first player in franchise history to have his number retired by the D-backs .
Did you know that the day Chris Owings received the Luis Gonzalez Award ( box score ), he homered? The press release said that Owings , "Has done it all this year. He's played in the outfield and the infield. He's contributed offensively. He is a team-first player. That's why he was voted by teammates and coaches as this year's recipient of the Luis Gonzalez Award for selflessness and hard play."
