The Rays announced today that Evan Longoria won his first Gold Glove Award. Dirtbag is just the second Ray to win the award (Carlos Pena, ’08).
“It’s the one award that I’ve wanted to win since I started pro ball,” Longoria said. “I take a lot of pride in my defense, so this award is very special to me. It’s humbling to have your name associated with some of the great players who have won a Gold Glove, especially the third basemen.
