San Diego Padres third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff is currently on pace for an NL record for fielding percentage at his position.
His .989 fielding percentage leads all of baseball in 2009. Vinny Castilla owns the current mark for fielding percentage by a third baseman at .984 set in 2004.
Kouzmanoff also has just 3 errors in 283 chances going into last night's game.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, no third baseman has had fewer than 6 errors in a season in which they had 300 total chances.
With 27 games left on the schedule, Kouzmanoff will certainly get to 300 total chances.
We could be watching history Padres fans.
