Gold Glove Award

Gold Glove Award

In 1957, Rawlings established the Gold Glove Award for the player who would be voted the best fielder at his position. The inaugural All-Star Fielding Team, as it was called, was voted on by a committee of sportswriters and was drawn from players in both leagues. Since 1958, the Gold Glove has been given to nine players in each league. (COURTESY OF RAWLINGS)
