GOLD GLOVE SHORTSTOPS

MLB Shortstops 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 shortstop position.

Ozzie Smith is in a league "nearly" by himself defensively and he is considered the standard by which all other defensive shortstops are judged.

Did you know that not one shortstop ever won a Gold Glove Award from both the American League and National League until Omar Vizquel did it 2005?

Not one single shortstop has ever won a Gold Glove Award during their rookie season. Who will be the first? Share your opinion on Baseball Fever .
