Gold Glove To 2 Phils


Baseball's award givers have not forgotten that the 1980 Phillies played defense to get to the World Series, too.


Yesterday, in a poll by The Sporting News, baseball's managers and coaches voted Phils centerfielder Garry Maddox and third baseman Mike Schmidt Gold Gloves for their play in the field in 1980.


Both Maddox and Schmidt are repeat winners. Maddox was selected for the sixth straight year to lead all players in both the American and National Leagues. Schmidt's 1980 Gold Glove gave him five in a row, tying him with Ken Boyer, Ron Santo and Doug Rader for most awards by an NL third baseman.


One other Phillies player, second baseman Manny Trillo, came close to winning a Gold Glove, losing by one vote to the New York Mets' Doug Flynn.


The rest of the NL squad: St. Louis' Keith Hernandez (first base); San Diego's Ozzie Smith (shortstop) and Dave Winfield (outfield); Montreal's Gary Carter (catcher) and Andre Dawson (outfield), and Atlanta's Phil Niekro (pitcher).


The Kansas City Royals put two players on the American League team – second baseman Frank White and outfielder Willie Wilson. The rest of the AL team: Milwaukee's Cecil Cooper (first base); Texas' Buddy Bell (third base) and Jim Sundberg (catcher); Detroit's Alan Trammell (shortstop); Boston's Fred Lynn (outfield), and Oakland's Dwayne Murphy (outfield) and Mike Norris (pitcher).
