Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez received the “Premio Nacional del Deporte,” a national sports award presented by Mexico’s La Comisión Nacional de Cultura Física y Deporte (CONADE).
Gonzalez, who was born in San Diego and spent much of his childhood in Mexico, also won the award in 2011.
Adrian Gonzalez won his fourth career Gold Glove award yesterday. The Dodgers first baseman added to his resume today.
Gonzalez was named the Wilson defensive first baseman of the year, and Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe was named the Wilson defensive third baseman of the year.
Uribe also won the award last year. Unlike the Gold Glove awards (but like the Fielding Bible Awards), the Wilson awards cover both leagues.
