Even though they have only won two Gold Glove awards since 1982 (Robin Yount was honored in 1982 and Carlos Gomez was selected in 2013), that doesn’t mean the Milwaukee Brewers have not had players who were stellar defensively… and worthy of an award.
In fact, there have been several players who have gone the whole season without an error. While that doesn’t necessarily mean that player should have won the Gold Glove that year, it does indicate that several Brewers players had a “perfect” season with the glove in those seasons.
Here’s a look at the Brewers players who went the whole season without an error (minimum of 300 innings played in the field that season to qualify for this list).
