Twins catcher Joe Mauer was awarded his first American League Gold Glove on Thursday. Mauer’s .997 fielding percentage in 2008 ranked first among all American League catchers. He committed just three errors in 886 total chances while making a career-high 134 starts behind the plate. Mauer also won his second AL batting title in 2008 by finishing the year with a .328 average.

Darrin Erstad is the only player to win a Gold Glove as an outfielder (2002 and 2003) and as an infielder (he won in 2004 as a First Baseman).

Nice/thanks... I would have thought maybe a short-stop or third basemen swapping posistions!

A-Rod hasn't been quite the feilder since moving to 3rd but he's still pretty darn good.

1998 would be the year and the player was Bernie Williams from NYY. He won the batting title, gold glove and a WS ring all in the same year.

Last night I was having burgers and beers with Joe's grandparents and asked Jake if he heard the news about Joe and he said what news. So I told him that he won a gold glove and you should of seing his face light up when I said that. he said he doesn't even know if Joe know's because he has ben in Puerto Rico for the last week in a 1/2.
