Gold Glove Second Basemen

MLB Second Basemen 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 second basemen's position.

"Some plays just come out of me, just on instincts. I'll make a play and wonder, How did I do that?" - Gold Glove (ten times over) Second Baseman Roberto Alomar

Rawlings Gold Glove Award



Bill Mazeroski was in a league by himself defensively yet he was never "seriously" considered for enshrinement into the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the writers; however, in 2001 the Veterans Committee took the matter into their own hands and recognized Mazeroski for his superior defensive skills.

Did you know that there are only two second baseman who have ever won a Gold Glove Award from both the American and National League? Kudos to Bret Boone who won his first Gold Glove in 1998 with the Cincinnati Reds then started the "club" when he won again in 2002 with the Seattle Mariners. And a "welcome to the club" goes to Orlando Hudson who joined in 2005/2006.

Ken Hubbs was the first and still the only second baseman to win a Gold Glove Award during his rookie season.
