NEW YORK -- Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeira picked up some hardware on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, as the infielders received their 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove Awards in an on-field ceremony.

The Gold Glove Award was Teixeira's fifth and Cano's second. Teixeira committed just one error in 1,055 total chances last season, owning a .999 fielding percentage to surpass Don Mattingly's franchise-record .998 mark for first basemen set in 1994.

Cano led all American League second basemen with 726 chances last year, finishing second in the league to Dustin Pedroia of the Red Sox with a .992 fielding percentage while committing just six errors.

The awards were officially announced last October.
