Fielding Bible Awards
A Fielding Bible Award recognizes the best defensive player for each fielding position in Major League Baseball based on statistical analysis. John Dewan and Baseball Info Solutions conduct the annual selection process, which commenced in 2006.
The Fielding Bible Award are voted on annually by ten fielding experts including Dewan, sabermetric pioneer Bill James, and writers such as Peter Gammons, Sports Illustrated's Joe Posnanski, SB Nation editor Rob Neyer, and ESPN analyst Doug Glanville.
The Fielding Bible Awards have historically been announced before the Gold Glove Awards, the traditional measurement of fielding excellence. Dewan wrote that this award cannot equal the prestige of the Gold Glove, which started 50 years earlier, but it provides an alternative.
