Welcome back to the Greatest Moments in Marlins History. With 100 days until Opening Day we bring you the last triple digit moment on this list. Moment 100 is Mark Buerlhe’s 2012 Gold Glove Award as a Pitcher! 2012, as many know, was the first year of the Miami Marlins. New stadium, new colors, new home run statue *yuk*, and new players. One of those players was pitcher Mark Buerlhe. Before coming to the Marlins, Mark won 3 Gold Gloves in a row with the White Sox. In 2012 Mark made it four in a row while wearing a Marlins uniform. Mark recorded 13 put outs, 47 assist, ZERO errors, was part of five double plays, and had a perfect 1.000% in fielding! If the ball was hit back at Mark it was guaranteed that the batter would be out! Mark became the first and only pitcher in Marlins history with a gold glove.
