On Tuesday, Arizona Diamondbacks’ first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and rightfielder Gerardo Parra captured Rawlings Gold Gloves.
The honors were Goldschmidt’s first such award, although he was given the National League’s Hank Aaron award Monday, while Parra’s Gold Glove was his second in the last three years.
Local and national media and fellow athletes and teammates, as well as Parra himself, took to Twitter following the announcement:
