School of Roch: Esposito wins Gold Glove
He was most noted for his glovework when coming out of Vanderbilt. And after sputtering for a while he may have rediscovered some of his prospect value this season.

On this date in 1978, second baseman Rich Dauer's American League record errorless streak (86 games, 425 chances) came to an end on the last day of the season. In 1988, Jim Traber ended Dave Stieb's no hit bid with 2 outs in the 9th. It marked consecutive games in which Stieb lost a no-hit bid with 1 out to go. Heartbreak on this date in 1989 as the 'Why Not' O's, after having spent from May 26th through August 30th in 1st place, are eliminated from the playoffs by the Blue Jays after consecutive losses in Memorial Stadium. Mark Williamson inherited a 3-1 lead in the 8th with runners on 2nd & 3rd and 1 out. He would proceed to allow back to back singles and a sac fly, giving the BJs a 4-3 win. Ecstasy, however, on this date in 2012 as the O's finish off a sweep of Boston and clinch a playoff berth.
