Gold GloveWhile the biggest of baseball’s awards won’t be handed out until after the World Series has come to an end, the results in the 2013 Gold Glove Award voting will be announced on Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2, according to Rawlings, the company that sponsors the oversized hardware.

For the first time ever, the sabermetric community will have an official say in who wins, as the SABR Defensive Index will account for roughly 25 percent of the vote, as reported by the Chicago Sun-Times’ John Grochowski back in August.

The Baltimore Orioles lead all teams with six finalists, while the Los Angeles Dodgers, with five finalists, lead the National League. The Tampa Bay Rays’ entire infield is in the running, while the Boston Red Sox, Oakland A’s, Pittsburgh Pirates and Orioles have two-thirds of their starting outfield up for an award.

How’s the voting going to play out?
