Anthony Volpe '19 Wins 2023 Rawlings Gold Glove
Jared Lowy

Anthony Volpe '19 finished his first season with the New York Yankees.  The shortstop played 1,346 and 2/3 innings in 150 starts, finishing with a .209 batting average with 21 home runs, 60 RBIs and 24 stolen bases.  He was also the first Yankee to hit at least 20 home runs and steal 20+ bases as a rookie.  However, it was Volpe's fielding that made him truly shine this season for the Bronx Bombers, becoming the first Yankee rookie to win the Rawlings Gold Glove Award, beating out Carlos Correa and Corey Seager for the award.  

Volpe handled 560 chances at short this season, committing only 17 errors for a .970 fielding percentage.  He tallied 186 putouts, 357 assists and completed 63 double plays.  When it came to defensive runs saved, Volpe ranked second among AL shortstops with 15 DRS.  His 4.4 RRAA led the AL and his 2.9 Ultimate Zone Rating was fourth overall in the American League.  "For a 22-year-old shortstop of the New York Yankees that won a job in Spring Training, essentially barely playing over Double-A, I think on balance it's been a really strong debut," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "There's no doubt that he's going to be one of the cornerstone guys for us moving forward in the future."

"Couldn't be more proud of this young man, who is never satisfied, and always want to be the best version of himself, both on and off the field," says Delbarton Baseball coach Bruce Shatel.  "Such a well deserved honor for the kid! All of us at Delbarton are so happy for you Anthony Volpe!"

"I never really had goals or anything like that going into the season, numbers-wise, but when you can put yourself in Yankees history, that's pretty crazy," says Volpe.
