    Watching the vacuum cleaner was a pure joy.

    Third Baseman: Brooks Robinson, 16-time winner (1960-1975)

    A virtuoso in his time, and well beyond it, at third base, there’s "Hoover" and then there’s everybody else. His 16 Gold Glove wins (all consecutive) are the most by a position player in baseball history. Robinson changed the game defensively from the hot corner in ways that were unimaginable at the time, with the quickness and reactions to make plays moving in any direction. His ability to make long, accurate throws cut the infield in half and played a massive part in the two World Series titles he helped bring to Baltimore.

    At the time of his retirement, Robinson held major league records for putouts, assists, total chances and double plays by a third baseman. His 39.1 defensive Wins Above Replacement are the third most of all time. After all, he didn’t get the nickname "The Human Vacuum Cleaner" by accident.
