Gold Glove-Caliber Play Made During Baseball’s Opening Day

Cash4Gold follows all gold-related news, so we were definitely paying attention when 2009 American League Gold Glove Award-winning pitcher Mark Buehrle kicked off the 2010 season with a spectacular defensive play on Monday.

In the top of the 5th inning in Chicago, a ground ball hit straight up the middle was kicked by Buehrle’s left foot. The ball rolled toward the first base line and Buehrle proceeded to chase after it. With his back to first base, Buehrle used his glove to miraculously flip the ball through his legs to the first baseman who caught it with his bare hand, barely beating the runner at first base.

The video of Buehrle’s outstanding defensive play can be viewed here. Many highlight shows on television have already touted the play as the front-runner for the 2010 defensive play of the year.

The ace pitcher has put together quite a collection of precious metals during his stellar baseball career. In 2005, he won a World Series ring with the White Sox as the team hoisted the Commissioner’s Trophy. Buehrle also threw a perfect game during the 2009 season.
