Paul Goldschmidt, Aaron Hill, Jake Lamb, Miguel Montero and A.J. Pollock represent the D’back nominees for the GIBBY’s which celebrate great plays and other memorable moments from the 2014 season. And here you thought by reading “Gibby” and “23” in the same sentence that this was going to be a post about Kirk Gibson.

Goldschmidt was nominated for a hitting performance in May against the Dodgers when he set a club record with four extra base hits. He set personal highs in the game with four runs scored and six RBI’s. Hill’s diving stop of a Rene Rivera shot down the third base line earned a Best Play nomination. For his first career game-ending home run, Montero received a nomination for Walk-Off. Lamb’s first career home run, in which he received the silent treatment from the rest of the D’back players in the dugout is a candidate for Cut4. Remember the swarm of bees that Pollock had to fight through in a game in April? That received a nod for an Oddity.
Fans can vote as many times as they like up until 9:59 PM MST on November 21st. The winners will be announced live on MLB Network and mlb.com on December 6th.
