The Rawlings Gold Glove Award was created in 1957, and since then the award has served as the highest symbol of defensive excellence in Major League Baseball. The award was first given in 1957.
The other winners in the National League were Chicago Cubs' Anthony Rizzo and Braves' Freddie Freeman at first base (tie), Colorado Rockies second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and third baseman Nolan Arenado, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte and Pittsburgh Pirates left fielder Corey Dickerson.

You can understand why people would rather watch that live and find out who won Gold Gloves later.
