It was a big day for post-season awards in the Show-Me State, as four Cardinals won National League Gold Gloves on Wednesday. Shortstop Edgar Renteria, third baseman Scott Rolen, catcher Mike Matheny and centerfielder Jim Edmonds were all honored for their excellence on the field. All four players have won Gold Gloves before. First baseman and left fielder Albert Pujols was also honored yesterday. He received the Players’ Choice Award for player of the year in 2003. Already this season, Pujols has captured the Hank Aaron Award as the National League’s best offensive player and the Sporting News’ player of the year. The Royals weren’t without an honor, as Angel Berroa got the Players’ Choice Award as the American Leagues best rookie. Berroa hit 287, with 21 stolen bases and 73 RBI’s. After committing 13 errors in the first 48 games, he had just 11 miscues the rest of the season.
