A Pair of Gold Glovers
The American League is announcing the winners today for the 2009 Gold Glove winners. It appears two Yankees are going to be on that list. Derek Jeter who had one of his best defensive years this season. This would mark Jeter's 4th Gold Glove award. His prior gold glove awards came in 04, 05 and 06.
It also appears that Mark Teixeira won his 3rd Gold Glove overall his prior two came in 2005 and 2006 with the Texas Rangers.
Rounding out the rest of the AL Gold Gloves, in the outfield Torii Hunter, Ichiro Suzuki and Adam Jones are the recipients.
In the infield along with Jeter and Teixeira, Placido Polanco gets the nod at 2B and Evan Longoria gets the nod at 3B.
Now that Mike Mussina is retired a new pitcher has taken the crown in the AL and that man is Mark Buehrle. At catcher Joe Mauer took home the award.
Congratulations to both Jeter and Teixeira.
