The 2020 MLB Season is not over just yet.
This season’s champion is crowned, but there is still at least one more award to throw out. That award is the annual Golden Glove Award. The award is given annually to the best defensive player in the American and National League for each position.
ESPN will air this year’s award show live at 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 from its Bristol, CT studios. This year marks the 10th consecutive year that ESPN has aired the awards ceremony.
ESPN’s Karl Ravech will anchor the broadcast. Mark Teixeira will join Ravech for the broadcast, which will stream simultaneously on the ESPN App.
The Chicago Cubs lead the National League in nominees for Golden Glove Awards, with seven nominees. Their cross-town rivals, the Chicago White Sox lead the American League, with five nominees. In all 24 of the league’s teams have players nominated for the award.
