Gold Glove Awards

The Gold Glove Award, which began in 1957, is given annually to the best defensive player at each position in both of the pro leagues. The honor was initiated by the Rawlings Sporting Goods Co., and a panel of sportswriters made the first year's selection. However, in 1958 the players themselves voted for the recipients of this prestigious award. In 1965, the responsibility for choosing the winners went to the managers and coaches, with the provision that they cannot vote for players within their respective organizations.

The winner of the award receives a glove, custom made with gold-finished leather, mounted on a hardwood stand.

Below is a complete list of Gold Glove Award winners since 1990:
