The Marlins gave their star shortstop a giant pendant, and his reaction was fantastic

All-Star Dee Gordon proud of Marlins' heart

Miami Marlins shortstop Dee Gordon enjoyed a breakout season in 2015, taking home Silver Slugger, Gold Glove and All-Star honors while taking home the National League stolen-base and batting titles.

Gordon was a bright spot in a disappointing season for Miami. For his efforts, team owner Jeffrey Loria presented his star infielder with a gift unlike anything he'd ever seen.

The gigantic pendant lists all Gordon's accomplishments from the 2015 campaign, highlighted by his league-leading .333 batting average.

The gift was a great gesture. But Gordon's reaction to receiving it stole the show.

Upon opening the box, Gordon can't believe his eyes. After thanking his owner, he tells his "I mean, the contract was enough, though," referring to the $50 million extension he signed over the winter.

After examining the giant creation for a few minutes, he asks, "Can I go show my teammates?" To which his owner responds, "It's yours, you can do whatever you want with it."

From an owner with a particularly iffy reputation, this was a pretty cool thing for Loria to do.

29. Rogers Centre, Toronto Blue Jays

The only things worse than this warehouse-looking place are the metric measurements on the outfield walls.

23. Angel Stadium, Los Angeles Angels

Nothin’ like some fake rocks in center field to really set the mood for a baseball game.

22. Progressive Field, Cleveland Indians

The fact that it’s no longer Jacobs Field bumps this down at least five spots.

21. Busch Stadium, St. Louis Cardinals

Can this place just stay out of the playoffs just once?

19. Chase Field, Arizona Diamondbacks

Center field is the deepest part of the stadium, guys. The wall doesn’t need to be that high.

5. Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox

Relax, Fenway is definitely an amazing place to watch a game. But sitting directly behind a pole and/or facing the left-center field wall just isn’t always appealing.
