Pirates' McLouth wins Gold Glove
TribLIVE Sports Videos
A 16th consecutive losing season merited one positive piece of news today when Pirates outfielder Nate McLouth was named to the National League Gold Glove team.
McLouth, 27, made 150 starts in the outfield (155 appearances overall) and made just one error, which came in the final week of the season. He led NL center fielders with a .997 fielding percentage and ranked second behind Milwaukee's Ryan Braun in fielding percentage among all NL outfielders.
McLouth is the first Pirates outfielder to win the award since Andy Van Slyke in 1992, and the first Pirates player at any position to win the award since shortstop Jay Bell in 1993.
