Along the hallway that connects the Orioles clubhouse to the dugout, hanging not far from large photos of the franchise's Hall of Famers, are pictures of each of the current Orioles who have won Gold Glove awards. The organization's dedication to defense has been a key ingredient to the Orioles' resurgence over the past two seasons, and their current crop of fielders evokes memories of yesteryear's teams built on stingy defense.

Hardy, center fielder Adam Jones and third baseman Manny Machado - won Gold Glove awards, marking the first time that three or more Orioles won in consecutive seasons since 1975 and 1976.
