The Fielding Bible Awards

Below we show the final point tally for The Fielding Bible Awards in the 2006 season. We asked a panel of experts to complete a ten-man ballot ranking the defensive ability of players from 1 to 10. We show the ranks in the tables below. We then awarded points in the same way as Major League Baseballís MVP voting: ten points for a first place vote, nine for second, etc., down to one point for tenth place. We cover all nine positions, looking at only their fielding work for the 2006 season. Non-pitchers are only eligible if they played at least 500 innings at the position. Pitchers require a minimum of 100 innings pitched.
