Gold Glove 2017: 18 Winners, 18 Gloves with Links to Buy

Your 2017 Gold Glove award winners and the gloves they wear…

And for the record, here’s 2016, 2015 (NL | AL), and 2013 (NL | AL) winners.

Zack Greinke

Zack Greinke Glove

Greinke won his fourth straight Gold Glove award with his Rawlings Gold Glove Collection RGG1200 model, a glove with gold trim, a 12” length, and Opti-Core technology. This glove looks good, feels good, and obviously performs well on the bump.

Tucker Barnhart

Tucker Barnhardt Glove

The Reds’ backstop achieved a near-perfect .999 fielding percentage with his black and tan Mizuno Pro Limited GMP200J model, proving once again Mizuno makes gloves worthy of top fielding awards.

Paul Goldschmidt

Paul Goldschmidt Evoshield Wrist Guard 2017

Paul Goldschmidt Rawlings Glove 2017

Paul Goldschmidt Rawlings First Base Mitt

Goldschmidt won his third Gold Glove with the same black and tan Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRODCT model he’s been using for as long as we can remember. Goldschmidt’s continued excellence in the field proves that this well-worn gamer can still handle the rigors of 90+ throws across the diamond.

DJ Lemahieu



This is Lemahieu’s second Gold Glove with his Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRONP2-6C, a mitt with an 11.25” length, H-web, and a dirty (yet good-looking) camel design with purple embroidery. Imagine that dirty camel look with Gold Labels—LeMahieu ought to add them in 2018.

Nolan Arenado

Nolan Arenado Nike Home Ultrafly Cleats

Nolan Arenado Cleats May 2017


Nolan Arenado has swept the hot corner Gold Glove for five years running and will remain the favorite for the next decade with his awesome Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO12-6TI. It is one of the best-looking mitts on this list due to the mitt’s simple, yet sweet Timberglase colorway.

Brandon Crawford

Silky smooth Brandon Crawford once again takes the shortstop Gold Glove for the NL after another great year in the field with his Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K, a gorgeous camel and black glove in an 11.75” package.

Marcell Ozuna

Ozuna wears quite an interesting glove, a Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO303-6 in a gray, orange, and light blue colorway. Although not the prettiest, this mitt obviously gets the job done.  If you didn’t already know, Ozuna’s got a hose-una, too.

Ender Inciarte

Ender Inciarte Wilson Glove
Inciarte’s glove is perhaps the simplest on the Gold Glove list, as his Wilson A2000 1799 features a straightforward all-black colorway with Wilson yellow logos.

Ender Inciarte Glove 2017

We prefer this version, a navy/red version, but Ender doesn’t need anything fancy to make big plays.  Buy Inciarte’s glove here.

Jason Heyward

Jason Heyward wins his fourth Gold Glove with a Cubs-themed Rawlings PRO303-6BM.  Its got a black and blue colorway, 12.75” length, Mesh back, and Gold Labels.

Heyward’s mitt is a great all-around outfielder’s glove. Get it here.

Marcus Stroman

Marcus Stroman Custom Cleats

No surprise that Marcus Stroman aka Stro-Show aka “Canadian Coverboy” rocks the flashiest glove on this list, a royal blue Nike SHA | DO mitt with a Modified Trapeze web (pictured is a similar Diamond Elite Pro II).

Marcus Stroman Glove

Nike’s been making a silent exit from the MLB glove scene, but this victory proves they still make high quality mitts.

Martin Maldonado

Angels’ backstop Martin Maldonado wears one of the most popular catchers glove in the MLB, the All Star CM3000, but chooses the all-black version of this top-notch mitt.

Eric Hosmer

Eric Hosmer Rawlings First Base Mitt 2017

Eric Hosmer Rawlings Glove 2017

Eric Hosmer wears a super clean black and camel Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRODCT mitt (13”, single post web).  His 2017 award is his fourth Gold Glove Award at first base. He already has the Gold Labels on his glove, but he will have to make room in the trophy case.

Brian Dozier

Dozier wears a classic all-saddle tan Wilson A2000 G4 (11.5”, Modified Single Post web), winning his first Gold Glove award at second base. Get an exact replica at this link.  Dozier’s “D” completes his already sparkling résumé and should garner him a few more MVP votes, which he’s been getting since 2015.

Evan Longoria

Evan Longoria Glove


Evan Longoria beat out the favorite and former Platinum Glove Winner, Manny Machado, for his third Gold Glove award at the hot corner. His longtime girlfriend (probably qualifies as wifey now), a Wilson A2000 EL3 model, is a sweet orange tan and black mitt with a deep pocket and single post web.

Andrelton Simmons

Andrelton Simmons Mizuno I-Web Glove

andrelton simmons

The Angels’ shortstop has now won three Gold Gloves in two leagues: one in the American League and two in the National League. Like years prior, he won the award with his all-tan Mizuno Pro Limited GMP400JAX, an 11.5” model with a “3-Deep” I-web.

Alex Gordon


Alex Gordon’s Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO303-6JBT glove is not only super shiny (due to the Platinum labels), but also looks great in a black, tan, and gray split-welted colorway. This is Gordon’s fifth Gold Glove.

Byron Buxton

Buxton wears the only “Fastback” glove (finger slot instead of open back) on this list, a Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO302-6, and features a black, brownish, and camel colorway.  Buxton told us he puts three fingers in the pinky hole (!) to help him get the feel he likes.

The worn look on his current gamer could use a little shine—some Gold Labels should help spruce it up!

Shop Buxton’s Rawlings style here.

Mookie Betts

Mookie Betts Game Glove 2018

Mookie Betts, a Wilson user, customized red and gold logos after winning his first Gold Glove last year.  After his second straight Gold Glove, we hope he sticks with this glove’s winning design.
