To end the 2016 season of the Italian Softball League (ISL), a commission formed by the Communications Office, the Scorers Committee and staff from the national team, analyzed the perforamnce and statistics from the 2016 ISL regular season (playoffs and cups excluded) to award the Gold Gloves and Silver Bats.
The winners will be recognized and receive their awards during the 2017 season.
The Gold Gloves were assigned to the players with the best defensive performance at each position. The results were a study of the statistics, as long as the player played at least half of their team games at that position. For the outfielders, the top three were chosen without differentiating each outfield position.
