- Please note: We apologize for any disruption in service you have experienced this week with SABR’s membership directory, renewing your membership, trying to make an online donation, or phone calls to the national office.

Here’s what we’ve been up to as of November 6, 2020:
For the eighth consecutive season, the SABR Defensive Index™ was used to help select the winners of the Rawlings Gold Glove Award and Rawlings Platinum Glove Award™, presented by SABR. Due to the compressed 2020 MLB season, the Rawlings Gold Glove Award qualifications have been amended to rely solely on the SABR Defensive Index, rather than a combination of the SDI and the managers and coaches’ vote.
Click here to view the 2020 Gold Glove winners, which were announced on ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” on Tuesday, November 3.
The inaugural Rawlings Gold Glove Team Award winners will be unveiled alongside the Rawlings Platinum Glove Award recipients exclusively on MLB Network’s Emmy Award-winning MLB Tonight at 6:00 p.m. ET on Friday, November 6.
