Hiroshima Carp ace Kenta Maeda added another accolade to his already lengthy list when he was revealed as one of this year’s Mitsui Golden Glove recipients on Tuesday afternoon.

Maeda is a winner for the fourth straight season and fifth time overall. Maeda is the third Central League pitcher to win the award in at least four consecutive seasons, following in the footsteps of former Yomiuri Giants pitchers Tsuneo Horiuchi, who reigned from 1972-78 and Takashi Nishimoto, who won seven straight from 1979-1985. Horiuchi was the chairman of this year’s Sawamura Award committee, which gave Maeda that honor last month.
