Bill White – first base

White played for three teams over a 13-year Major League career, three of them with the Phillies. A six-time Gold Glove award winner by the time he reached Philadelphia in 1966, White earned his seventh and final Gold Glove in his first season with the team. White committed just nine errors with a .994 fielding percentage in 1966 and only 21 in 396 games in a Phillies’ uniform.

White is tied with Vic Power for fourth-most Gold Gloves all-time for first basemen behind Keith Hernandez, Don Mattingly and George Scott.

Manny Trillo – second base

Trillo was part of an excellent double play combo with Larry Bowa in the late 1970’s to early 1980’s. In four seasons with the Phillies, Trillo took home Gold Glove honors three times (1979, 1981, 1982). Trillo’s best defensive season with the Phillies came in 1982 in which committed just five errors and had a .994 fielding percentage.

Even though Trillo didn’t win the Gold Glove during the World Series championship season of 1980, he was still stellar with just 11 errors and a .987 fielding percentage.  Trillo went to Cleveland following the 1982 season with four other players for Von Hayes. Trillo also played for the Expos, Giants, Cubs and Reds before retiring following the 1989 season.
