Golden Glove Grady!

Congratulations to Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore on his selection to receive the Golden Glove Award for the 2007 season. Grady's jump on the ball, incredible dexterity, and his penchant for making acrobatic catches has earned him this distinction.

Managers and coaches from each Major League club vote for the best defensive players in their respective leagues and are excluded from voting for players on their own teams. Sizemore joined the Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki and the Twins' Torii Hunter in landing the AL outfield honor in '07.
Sizemore is the first Indians player to win a Gold Glove since shortstop Omar Vizquel and second baseman Roberto Alomar received the honor in 2001. He is the first Cleveland outfielder to win one since center fielder Kenny Lofton did so in 1996.
The 25 year old Sizemore made only 2 errors in 405 for a .995 fielding percentage.
Below are the 2007 Golden Glove recipients by position:

The Indians and their management staff keep racking up the honors.

This is all good if the proper moves are made to win the 2008 World Series.

Nothing less will be acceptable.
