Wright has seven All-Star appearances, two Gold Glove Awards, two Silver Slugger Awards, and is a member of the 30-30 club. Wright's big league career ended with a.296 batting average, 242 home runs, and 970 runs batted in. He played his last game on September 25, 2013.
Wright won his first Gold Glove in 2007. He was awarded this prize even though he played third base that year, because Mike Lowell was injured. Wright replaced Lowell at third base and had another great season finishing with 31 doubles, 109 RBIs, and a.929 fielding percentage.
Wright has been nominated for the Gold Glove every year since he started playing in 2001. He has won the award twice. In between, he finished second three times and third once.
During his 12-year career, he won more Gold Glove Awards (10) than any other second baseman in baseball history, as well as four Silver Slugger Awards for his batting. His 10 Gold Gloves are a record for the position.
Alomar's 12-year career began with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1991 and ended with the New York Yankees in 2013. The 5' 11", 180-pounder from Puerto Rico was considered one of the best defensive second basemen of his era, winning four consecutive Gold Gloves from 1996 to 1999. He is only the third player to win four straight Gold Gloves at a single position, joining Joe Cronin and Ernie Lombardi.
Alomar has been voted on to eight consecutive All-Star Games, starting in 1992 when the Blue Jays played their first season. He was also named MVP of the 1995 All-Star Game which resulted in his fourth Gold Glove Award.
After his playing days were over, Alomar became a coach for the Yankees, serving as the team's infield coordinator from 2014 to 2016. He then moved to third base coach in 2017 before being replaced by Danny Espinosa at the end of the season.
10. He always played the game correctly, hurried to his place, and had as much fun as he could while playing the game he loved. He was an 18-time All-Star, a 10-time Gold Glove Award winner, a seven-time Silver Slugger Award winner, and the American League MVP in 1997, all while maintaining a cheerful view on life outside of baseball. In other words, Mike Lowell has been one of the most well-rounded players in MLB history.
He finished with 469 home runs and 1260 RBI's over 16 seasons in Boston (1997-2002 and 2004). His.542 career batting average is the highest of any Red Sox player with at least 2000 hits.
Lowell began his career as a shortstop but moved to third base when Terry Francona came up with the idea during Spring Training 2003. The Red Sox hoped that this change would help Lowell deal with the pressure of being a rookie leader of the team. It worked: he hit.292 with 26 homers and 102 RBI's that year.
In 2004, Lowell became the first third baseman to win the MVP award since Robin Yount in 1987. He was also named to his second consecutive All-Star Game. With his new-found confidence, Lowell led the Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years. He ended up winning three rings with the Boston Celtics in NBA basketball season 2007-08.
