BALTIMORE (AP) - Three members of the Baltimore Orioles have earned American League Gold Glove Awards for their defensive prowess this season: center fielder Adam Jones, catcher Matt Wieters and shortstop J.J. Hardy.
The three Gold Gloves are the most in the majors by one team. The Orioles were one of only two clubs - along with the New York Yankees - to have more than one player selected.
It's the first Gold Glove for Hardy and the second for Jones and Wieters. Jones earned a Gold Glove in 2009 and Wieters received one last season.
Hardy led AL shortstops in fielding percentage, putouts and assists. He made only six errors in 779 chances, and his .992 fielding percentage was the highest by an AL shortstop since Mike Bordick in 2002.
