    Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has won his sixth straight Gold Glove award, making him one of four players in the World Series rewarded for superior defense this season. Going back to 1959, the year after the Gold Glove was split into separate votes for the AL and National League, the results in 27 of 55 years saw six or more players awarded the first Gold Glove in their careers, and there have been at least six new faces each of the last seven years. A new approach was taken to the Rawlings Gold Glove voting this year. Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado became the 10th rookie to win a Gold Glove and first since outfielder Ichiro Suzuki in 2001. Rawlings has presented Gold Gloves since 1957. All rights reserved.
