Rawlings Announces 2013 Gold Glove Finalists
The Rawlings Sports company announced the finalist for the 2013 Gold Glove awards on Friday. The list included three players at all nine positions in each league, and the winners will be announced next Tuesday at 8 P.M. EST on ESPN2.
The Gold Glove award, first handed out in 1957, recognizes the best individual players in the league at their respected position. Players are voted by the managers and coaches in each league. Managers are not permitted to vote for their own players.
The Baltimore Orioles led the way with six players being named finalists, with the Kansas City Royals and Los Angeles Dodgers following behind with five players a piece. The entire Tampa Bay Rays infield was also nominated as finalists.
Of course, as most awards are concerned, there were a lot of players not listed that might have deserved the recognition of being the top fielder in the league at their position. Comment below, and tell us of any players that you think missed the cut.
