2011 Gold Glove Award winners…and their gloves!

Last week the 2011 Rawlings Gold Glove awards were announced. Of course all the news stories share tidbits such as there were nine first-time winners and the Red Sox and Dodgers won the most awards, with three each.

But what we really want to know is…Which gloves do the Gold Glove winners actually use?

Because we all know that with the right glove, anyone can make millions, right?! So we dug through photo and video archives, searching for the glove brand and model of all the 2011 Gold Glove winners.

Below are lists of the honorees from each league. Player names link to video highlights (who doesn’t like web gems?!) so you can see why each player deserves the award.

Help us! Although we found most of the gloves we were looking for, we didn’t catch all of them. If you discover any that we missed, let us know at team@morebaseball.com.

* Buerhle’s video is from 2010, but we think he deserves the Gold Glove for a decade based on this play.

We also found some rare pics of these Gold Glovers Bucknering a ball. Enjoy!
