It’s been a dozen years, but sophomore shortstop Chase Hamilton earned Gold Glove honors from the American Baseball Coaches Association on Thursday.
The Gold Gloves are given to the best collegiate defenders in the country, and Chase was undeniably one of them. He was listed as a second baseman, but he did most of his work at shortstop.
He only committed four errors all season out of 238 chances. He racked up 100 putouts, 137 assists, and was a part of 27 double plays.
He also was solid in the batter’s box too. He will be a great asset for head coach Chris Hanks for the next two seasons.
Hamilton was the first Maverick since 2007 to win this honor.
