The Gold Glove is one of the most prestigious awards in baseball. 18 awards are handed out each season to the best player in their position in both the National and American leagues. Winners are voted on by league managers and coaches. Today it was announced White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle has won his second Golden Glove for AL pitcher, the problem is it wasn’t the MLB who announced it. Instead, Buehrle’s wife, Jamie Buehrle took to her Facebook to deliver the news. In a Facebook status Buehrle wrote, “So proud of my husband. He is now a Two time gold glove winner!!!”
The MLB is scheduled to announce the 2010 Gold Glove winners Tuesday and Wednesday, well at least we’ll find out the other 17 winners.
Props to my employers the Chicago Tribune for breaking this story & keep on chasing Jamie!
