Cal Ripken Owns 2 Gold Gloves!!!

Always known as a capable defender, Cal Ripken played during an era of some amazingly skilled defensive players.  And while he may not have been at the top of that mountain for a very long time, Cal managed to win 2 Gold Glove awards during his career.

Coming in the back-to-back seasons of 1991 and 1992, Cal soared to the top of the food chain as the best defensive shortstop in the American League.  In those years, Cal amassed fielding percentages of .986 and .984 while handling over 1,500 opportunities in the field!

Just another reason that Cal ranks as one of the best all-around players of his era.
