Tucker Barnhart

first_imgI was glad to see that Tucker Barnhart won the Golden Glove award this year!  The 26-year old from Brownsburg received his first Golden Glove!  He did so by beating out perennial winners Yadier Molina of the Cards and Buster Posey of the Giants.It was the first Golden Glove award for the Reds since Brandon Phillips won one in 2013 as a second baseman, and Tucker is the first Reds catcher to win since Johnny Bench in 1977.I am sure it is very satisfying for Barnhart since the so-called experts said he was too small to be a regular major league catcher.  They forgot about another ingredient to success–that is “how big is a person’s heart”?last_img
