Mizuno Brand Ambassador Scott Rolen wins the 2010 National League Gold Glove award, capturing his eighth career Gold Glove. Rolen, the Cincinnati Reds third baseman, won his first Gold Glove since the 2006 season. This is the third different franchise that he has won the award with, having previously done so with both the Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals.
During the 2010 season Rolen recorded a .977 fielding percentage, good for second best overall in the National League. He made just eight errors in 350 chances. Additionally, Rolen helped turn 28 double plays this season.
Rolen is third all-time in Gold Glove awards for third basemen, behind Hall of Fame members Brooks Robinson (16) and Mike Schmidt (10). An All-Star for the National League Central Division Champions, Rolen was one of the three Reds to win a Gold Glove award this season.
