Remember Markakis' catch (not) on Opening Day?

November 02, 2011|By Matt Vensel

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters and right fielder Nick Markakis won Gold Glove Awards on Tuesday night, giving the team multiple Gold Glove winners for the first time in 13 years. It was another lost season. Still, that's pretty cool.

Wieters won his first Gold Glove Award in his third season (and 2011 won't be his last), but Markakis winning his first was long overdue. For years, he has been gunning down runners and making spectacular plays like that game-saving catch against Tampa Bay's Ben Zobrist on Opening Day in the second game of 2011 (thanks to @JulieSax on Twitter for refreshing my memory about which game it was). Let's watch it again, shall we?
