Did you know that when Frank Malzone won his first Gold Glove Award at third base (1957), it was given to only one player who at the time was considered the best defensive player at their respective position in Major League Baseball (from either league)?

Frank Malzone was the first Major League player to win two Gold Gloves at third , the first to win a pair in consecutive seasons, the first to win three Gold Gloves at third , and the first to win three in consecutive seasons.

Frank Malzone had 378 assists at third base in 1958, a Boston Red Sox team record that stands to this day. Malzone had actually broken his own record, since one year earlier he had 370 assists, a total which broke the original team record of 338 set by Jim Tabor in 1939.

Frank Malzone led the American League in double plays at third base five times (1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961) tying the fielding record set by Ken Keltner (1939, 1941, 1942, 1944, 1947).

Frank Malzone, in 1957, led the American League in games played at third base (153), putouts at third base (151), assists at third base (370), double plays at third base (31), fielding percentage at third base (.954) and errors committed at third base (25) - the first time any player at any position in the junior circuit led in all those fielding stats in the same season.
