Tony Gwynn Is A 5-Time Gold Glove Award Winner!!
Never known for being fleet of foot, most discussion about Tony Gwynn and his ability to dominate the sport spoke of his immense ability to make contact at the plate.
But Tony Gwynn was also a solid, and sometimes elite, defender. Awarded with five Gold Gloves for excellence in defense, Gwynn rounded out his play with solid effort in the outfield. From 1986-1999, Gwynn won five award in those six seasons.
Not too shabby for the guy known as the best hitter in the last 40 years. Not too shabby at all…
