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!!!
