Rizzo wins his first Gold Glove award

Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won his first career Gold Glove on Monday night during the Rawlings' Glove Glove presentation.

Rizzo is the youngest Cubs first baseman to win the award in Cubs franchise history and was one of the primary reasons that the Cubs were regarded as one of the top defenses ever.

He batted .292 with 32 homers, 43 doubles, and 109 RBIs this season.

This is the first time since 2005 that the Cubs have multiple Glove winners in one season with Heyward and Rizzo winning.
