MLB Gold Glove Time : Maddux earns 18TH Rawlings Award !


Greg Maddux made it 18 Gold Gloves in 19 years after splitting time between San Diego and Los Angles. Really neat part of the Award was seeing the highlight spot on ESPN- the play they showed came from the game Maddux pitched in D.C. against the Nats.

Maddux fielded a ground ball with a runner on third base and faked a throw to first before spinning around and firing a throw to third base and catching the runner off the bag. Chris and I were there to see that one and I told him after the play that is why he has 17 Gold Gloves...

Early reports from his Agent says that Greg is leaning toward retiring vs. coming back for 1 more season. I can only hope that isn't the case- need 1 more season...
