One of J.P. Crawford’s goals for 2020 and beyond is simple — and bold.
“I want to win a Gold Glove,” he said.
“I can do it,” he continued. “I know I can do it. So that’s going to be one of my main goals.”
When the conversation turns to Crawford and his defense, a lot of attention is paid to The Throw — and rightfully so.
Peel back the layers and you’ll see that Crawford played very good defense at shortstop over the second half of last season. His skill in the field isn’t limited to a brilliant play here and there.
