Did you know that Cesar Cedeno won five consecutive Gold Glove Awards in the outfield, 1972 through 1976? Only three other National League outfielders had five-or-more at that point: Willie Mays (12-straight), Roberto Clemente (12 straight) and Curt Flood (7-straight).

Did you know that Cesar Cedeno was the first Houston Astros outfielder to ever win a Gold Glove Award ? Did you know after he won his last Gold Glove in 1976, it would take thirty-three years before another Astros ' outfielder put a Gold Glove on his shelf? Do you know who that outfielder was? [ Answer ]

Cesar Cedeno Cycle
Cesar Cedeno Hits for the Cycle ( Box Score ) | The Vernon Daily Record | August 3, 1972 | Page 8
On August 2, 1972 , Cesar Cedeno started a Houston Astros hit parade (sixteen hits, by eight Astros , across nine-innings) with a double in the first inning. Two innings later, the hard hitting center fielder hit a two-run homer, starting the scoring parade (10 runs). In the bottom of the fifth, ahead 3-1, with opposing pitcher Gary Nolan still on the mound, Cedeno hit a single to right field, enable Roger Metzger - who led off the inning with a triple - to trot home from third. In the eighth, Metzger had the single, Cedeno had the triple, and history was made - Cesar completed the first cycle in Houston Astros history .

On August 9, 1976 , Cesar Cedeno hit a triple in the first inning, with a little help from a Cardinals' righty Bob Forsch . Five innings later, not one of the 12,395 fans at Busch Stadium was thinking cycle, but Cedeno led off the sixth with a homer, doubled in the seventh, then singled in the eighth, completing his second cycle - which was also the second cycle by a Houston Astros ' player, and through today, Cedeno remains the only player with two cycles in Houston history .

Cesar Cedeno Cycle #2
Cesar Cedeno Hits Second Cycle ( Box Score ) | The Valley Morning Star | August 10, 1976 | Page B2
What do Cesar Cedeno, Rickey Henderson and Joe Morgan have in common? They are the only three players in baseball history to steal fifty-or-more bases and hit twenty-or-more home runs in three (or more) different seasons. Cedeno was the first, 1972-1973-1974, Morgan joined him next, 1973-1974-1976, and Henderson had his third in 1990, after back-to-back years in 1985-86, but surpassed them both with his fourth in 1993. No player since, has ever done it twice.
