There's no baseball being played Tuesday night, but there is still some baseball-related viewing to sate you until the next World Series game. MLB's 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove award winners will be revealed Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. ET in a special, hour-long announcement show on ESPN 2.
The best fielders in the game were dwindled down to three finalists at each position from each league last week. (Though they were announced last week, the "finalists" are actually the top three vote-getters from a ballot that was submitted over a month ago.)
There are several of the usual suspects among the group, including Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who is going for his sixth consecutive gilded mitt . Among the newcomers are Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, D'Backs starter Patrick Corbin and Mets left fielder Eric Young Jr..
So far as teams are concerned, Baltimore leads the pack with six finalists. They are trailed by the Royals and Dodgers, who have five each.
For the first time ever, the Gold Glove vote has not been determined solely by managers (and up to six coaches on their staffs). While the manager/coach combo still command three-fourths of the vote, a newly introduced sabermetric component was used to weigh the remaining 25 percent.
