Hunter, Ichiro among AL Gold Glovers
Defensive stars in outfield earn Award for eighth straight year

By Robert Falkoff / MLB.com

Torii Hunter and Ichiro Suzuki began collecting Gold Gloves in 2001 and they're still going strong.

Some of the names and faces change, but Hunter and Suzuki remain constants among American League Gold Glovers. When the AL Rawlings Gold Glove squad was announced on Thursday, Hunter and Suzuki were recognized for the eighth consecutive year. Whether it's Suzuki racking up an outfield assist for Seattle with his laser-like right arm or Hunter leaping at the wall for a highlight reel catch to help the Angels, the pattern of defensive excellence among those AL West outfielders is well established.

The remainder of the 2008 AL Gold Gloves squad includes pitcher Mike Mussina of the Yankees, catcher Joe Mauer of the Twins, first baseman Carlos Pena of the Rays, second baseman Dustin Pedroia of the Red Sox, shortstop Michael Young of the Rangers, third baseman Adrian Beltre of the Mariners and outfielder Grady Sizemore of the Indians.

The winners were selected by managers and coaches from each AL team. Managers and coaches could not vote for their own players. The 2008 season marked the 52nd year of the Gold Glove Awards.

While Hunter and Suzuki have become fixtures with eight consecutive Gold Gloves apiece, Mussina isn't far behind. Gaining his first Gold Glove since 2003, the veteran right-hander now has seven Gold Gloves. He also received the defensive honor in 2003, '01, '99, '98, '97 and '96.

Besides Hunter and Suzuki, other repeat winners from 2007 included Sizemore and Beltre.
