Enjoy some Golden GIFs of the 2015 American League Gold Glove winners

There are normal gloves that you and I use (and hopefully don't bring to MLB games) and then there are Gold Gloves. Trophy mitts given to the masters of defense at the highest level of professional baseball. The 2015 winners were announced on Tuesday night and we've highlighted the AL side in GIF form below (NL here). Be amazed and somebody tell Jurassic 5 we found the answer to that question they had.

P: Dallas Keuchel

That's two in a row for the man who can make baserunners run in slow motion:

C: Salvador Perez

What's better: Salvy's three-time Gold Glove defense or his choice of perfume?

1B: Eric Hosmer

The three-time winner has gotten so good that he now plays most games with his back to home plate:

2B: Jose Altuve

The first of hopefully many wins for the Astros second baseman:

3B: Manny Machado

Just Manny being Manny (but not Manny being Manny)

SS: Alcides Escobar

Surprisingly, just his first win. Either way, ESCOBAR SEASON HAS RETURNED!

LF: Yoenis Cespedes

Beating extra-base hits:

And the sun on a daily basis:

CF: Kevin Kiermaier

When you make players as talented as Chris Archer go like this, you know you're a pretty decent defender.

RF: Kole Calhoun

Kole, your defense was Unforgettable this season.
