Mike Schmidt Is A 10-Time Gold Glove Award Winner

When the discussion of the greatest defensive third baseman in baseball history is brought up, the conversation ends almost always between two players – Brooks Robinson and Mike Schmidt.

Both men were magicians at the ‘Hot Corner’ and their ability to make impossible plays seem effortless put them on a level that no one else has reached.

Mike Schmidt won 9 Gold Gloves for his defensive excellence.  His first win of the award came in 1976.  And he went on to capture the award in 9 of the next 10 seasons.
