Gold Glove Third Basemen

MLB Third 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 third basemen's position.

Brooks Robinson is in a league by himself defensively and he is considered the defensive standard by which all other third baseman are judged.

Did you know that Matt Williams was the first third baseman to win a Gold Glove Award from both the American League ( 1997 ) and National League ( 1991 )?

Frank Malzone won a Gold Glove Award during his rookie season (1957), the first in the American League. When Nolan Arenado won in 2013, he became the first rookie third bagger to win a Gold Glove Award from the National League.
