Gold Glove Awards: Teixeira & Cano Takes Home the Hardware

Award season has started for Major League baseball as the Gold Gloves were handed out on Monday night. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano were two of three Yankees nominated for awards, but were the only two that brought home the hardware.

Russell Martin was the other Yankee nominated for a Gold Glove, but lost at catcher to Matt Wieters of the Baltimore Orioles. The last Yankee to win behind the plate was Thurman Munson in 1975.

Mark Teixeira won his fifth Gold Glove of his career and his third as a Yankee. He was up against Adrian Gonzalez and Eric Hosmer were also nominated for the award.

Robinson Cano won his second Gold Glove as a second baseman. In the last few years, he has made himself known as the best overall second baseman in all of baseball with his bat and his glove. Dustin Pedroia of the Red Sox was the winner last year.
