His glove is gold, and he earned every foot and yard of it
Adam Laroche missed the chunkiest chunk of the 2011 season, leaving May 22 with a foot injury. But he returned on April 5, 2012 in Chicago and got off to a hot start, with at least 1 RBI in each game in Chicago. Laroche earned many accomplishments in 2012, including a spot in the 100 RBI-in 1 season list. His glove catching many balls from Ryan Zimmerman helped him win a major award: The National League First Base Rawlings Gold Glove. Maybe he should polish his glove gold!
