Roberto Clemente Won 12 Gold Glove Awards For Defensive Excellence

With uncanny speed and arm strength that was unparalleled, Roberto Clemente was a fixture as a top defensive outfielder for most of his career.

Clemente captured 12 Gold Gloves in twelve straight seasons from 1961-1972.  He is the Pittsburgh Pirates all-time leader in Gold Glove Awards won.

In a recent radio interview, Tim Kurkjian called Clemente the single-best defensive outfielder that he has ever seen.  And that is good enough for me!!!
