Baseball’s gold standard can be found at Coors Field. That’s where Rockies infielders Nolan Arenado and DJ LeMahieu ply their trade, play after play, game after game.
They were rewarded for their excellence Tuesday night.
Arenado won a Rawlings Gold Glove for the fifth consecutive season, making him the first infielder to ever win a Gold Glove in each of his first five seasons in the majors. LeMahieu, snared a Gold Glove for the second time. He also won in 2014.
Rockies Gerardo Parra failed to mine gold for a third time, beaten out by Marcel Ozuna, the Miami Marlins’ fast and graceful left fielder.
