SAN DIEGO (AP) - Kevin Kouzmanoff of the San Diego Padres is willing to accommodate the Hall of Fame, to a point.

A day after Kouzmanoff set a single-season record for NL third basemen with a .990 fielding percentage, the Hall of Fame asked if he'd donate a glove that he used at some point during the season.

"I have to pick the glove," Kouzmanoff said. "They aren't getting my gamer!"

There's a good reason for that - Kouzmanoff committed only three errors in 309 total chances.

Kouzmanoff broke the old mark of .987 by Colorado's Vinny Castilla in 2004.
