The 2010 American League Gold Glove Awards are out and for the first time in 10 years, Torii Hunter finds himself without one. The other player who had won nine in a row, Ichiro Suzuki of the Seattle Mariners won his tenth and now joins Roberto Clemente and Willie Mays (12 each) and Ken Griffey Jr., Andruw Jones and Al Kaline (10 each) for the most by an outfielder.
And it just goes to show you how sorry the shortstop position is in the AL when Derek Jeter wins a Gold Glove.
Here are the list of winners (No. of Gold Gloves)
