November 16, 1994|From Associated Press

Pitcher Mark Langston of the Angels won his sixth Gold Glove, his fourth in a row, on Tuesday and dedicated the award to Jimmie Reese, the longtime Angel coach who died this year at age 92.

Langston started 18 games and had 27 putouts.

"(Reese) had a great deal to do with my fielding success, as well as the defensive skills of my teammates," Langston said.

Don Mattingly won his record ninth Gold Glove at first base and New York Yankee teammate Wade Boggs earned his first at third base in American League awards announced Tuesday.

Ken Griffey Jr. of Seattle became the first AL outfielder to win five consecutive Gold Gloves.

Mattingly's ninth award, and fourth in a row, moved him past George Scott for the most in the AL at first base. Keith Hernandez holds the National League record with 11 at the position.

"I pride myself on defense and felt this year that we were strong as a team defensively," Mattingly said.
