Kirby Puckett Won 6 Gold Glove Awards!!!

While he may not look like it, Kirby Puckett was a supreme defender.

His ability to get to the ball quickly when hit into the outfield gave him an advantage that many others did not have.  Kirby was always quick on his feet, and that speed that he had helped him make plays and raise his level of defense to elite status.

In 12 major league seasons, Kirby captured the Gold Glove six times. 

He compiled a career fielding percentage of .989 during his playing days while committing just 51 errors in 7,831 games.
