Jim Kaat was in a league by himself defensively yet he was never "seriously" considered for a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Greg Maddux is in that same league (defensive, but also has more than 300 Wins) and is the only pitcher in Major League history to sweep an actual decade (1990-1999) of Gold Gloves.
Did you know that Bobby Shantz was the first pitcher to win a Gold Glove Award from both the American League (1957) and National League (1961)?
Not one pitcher has ever won a Gold Glove Award during their rookie season. Do you think one will? Share your thoughts on our message board.
