Jim Palmer Won 4 Gold Glove Awards

Jim Palmer Won 4 Gold Glove Awards

Rounding out his skills as a dominant pitcher, Jim Palmer also excelled as a defensive pitcher.

Palmer won 4 consecutive Gold Glove awards honoring him as the American League’s top defensive pitcher for the 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1979 seasons.

And while Palmer cannot come close to comparing to the record number of Gold Gloves won by Greg Maddux for pitchers, he is one of just twelve pitchers to ever win the award since it’s start in 1957.
