Rockies Snare 2 Gold Gloves
DENVER (CBS4) – Two Colorado Rockies were honored with Gold Glove awards on Tuesday night.
Left fielder Carlos Gonzalez won his third and Nolan Arenado became the first rookie third baseman to win the award since 1957. It was the first time a rookie has won the award since outfielder Ichiro Suzuki was honored in 2001.
Arenado told ESPN there were a couple plays that he was glad to make when the game was a line.
“Todd Helton helped me out a lot, too, by picking up all my bad throws,” he told ESPN.
Rockies veteran Troy Tulowitzki was in the running but he lost out to Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons.
Rawlings has presented Gold Gloves since 1957.
