Four Mariners come away with Gold Gloves

Need some proof that the Seattle Mariners were the best defensive team in baseball last season? How do four Gold Glove awards sound?

Four Seattle Mariners earned American League Gold Glove awards on Tuesday, an honor that is voted upon by the league's coaches and managers.

First baseman John Olerud, second baseman Bret Boone, center fielder Mike Cameron and right fielder Ichiro Suzuki each came away with the hardware for their stellar defense in 2003.

Both Olerud and Boone won for the second year in a row, each for the third time in their careers. Boone ranked second among AL second basemen with a .990 fielding percentage, committing seven errors.

Ichiro committed only two errors in right field for the M's, earning the award for the third-consecutive season. He's been a Gold-Glover in each season since coming over to America.

Cameron, who won his first Gold Glove in the historic 116-win 2001 season, became a two-time winner for his outstanding range in center. His return to the team next season is improbable at this point. Recommended Stories
