ATL Records, Awards and Achievements

ATL trophy


2005 Seasonal Awards
"Gold Gloves, Silver Bats and Green Diamonds"

The ATL awards are commendations of all-around excellence. The Gold Gloves, the Silver Sluggers and the Best Nines are more than simple league leader awards. These awards are an attempt to award the full ballplayer within the context given. It is not always the case that the best fielder, for example,  has the best Fielding Percentage. Or that the best slugger has the most home runs. It also follows that the "best" player at a position might not lead the league in anything -- but instead show an overall level of excellence across all aspects of play that excerls what anyone else has achieved this season. As well, it is important for these ATL Awards that the player in question be an everyday player within that league. That does mean some deserving gloveman might lose out on a Gold Glove because he was mainly a late-game replacement or his weak bat kept him out of the lineup for a long stretch. Or that a top batsman will miss on the Silver Slugger because he was traded mid-season to the other league. But the awards will show the best players in the league, day in and day out, 9 innings a game. These ATL awards are for the everyday player.
