Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Awards Announced!

By JJ Eusay, 06/21/21, 6:00PM CDT


In the previous years, we have only named 1 gold glover per division.  This year we are changing that up naming a Gold Glover per position, regardless of division, and a Cy Young (to be re-named after a Shalom Hall of Fame pitcher at a later date).  There is also a reserve infielder, outfielder, and pitcher as well.  We will play a game, Gold Glovers vs. Silver Sluggers on July 11th following the playoff games.  This group will be recognized at the banquet in December and presented with their Gold Glove trophies.

As voted on by the Captains, here are your 2021 Spring Gold Glovers:

C - Abbey Garber
1B - Robbie Franklin
2B - Nick Barr
3B - Matthew P. Brumley
SS - Ryan Alford
LF - Brandon Strull
LCF - Justin Reed
RCF - Chris Stutz
RF - Peter Salazar
P (Cy Young) - John Gavin Burke

IF - Brian Ortega
OF - Donald Prim
P - Jon Banta

....and now on to the Silver Sluggers.  We've never done the Silver Sluggers in the past but we are this year.  Eligible players (must've played at least 20 games) were grouped with the others that played their same positions.  Example, there were 17 2B's, the person who had the highest batting average got 17 points, second in average got 16 points, third 15 and so on down to 1.  The same thing was done with Slugging % and OPS.  Each person's numbers were then added together to give them a score.  That score was then sorted 1-17 (or however many were at their respective positions to decide statistically who had the best offensive year at each position.   This was calculated like this for every position.

Here is your 2021 Silver Slugger team, 10 starters, a reserve infielder, outfielder and pitcher:

C - Nick A Croce
1B - Tim Kaminski
2B - Jeremy Pease
3B - Miguel Duron
SS - Ryan Alford
LF - Tim Jamieson
LCF - Ryan Richardson
RCF - Chris Stutz
RF - Joe Machado
P - Scott Lawrence 

IF - Ryan Driggers
OF - Donald Prim
P - Matt Ruckel

Congratulations to all of you on a fine season!  Looking forward to seeing you all in the inaugural Gold Glover vs. Silver Slugger Game.
