Learn About Baseball Gloves


Baseball gloves are an essential piece of gear every ballplayer needs. Also called baseball mitts, gloves come in various sizes and styles depending on age, hand size, and position. Infield gloves are shorter to allow fielders to transfer balls quickly to their throwing hand, whereas outfield gloves are longer to create a bigger pocket to catch fly balls with. Pitcher’s gloves are similar to infield gloves but have a closed web to hide the baseball from the batter. Catcher’s mitts have heavy padding on thumbs and palms to cushion hands against hard-thrown pitches. They also have a deep pocket to keep the ball secure in the glove. A first baseman’s mitt is long and wide to create a big web to help fielders scoop up low throws. No matter which type of glove suits your needs, choose youth or adult baseball gloves from brands like Rawlings, Marucci, Mizuno, and Nokona. You can find out the complete selection of gloves here.


How to Choose the Right Baseball Glove for You


Consider the position you will need the glove for. In baseball, different positions require different glove designs as each is designed specifically to perform best at one position. Next, consider the size as it should feel comfortable while providing a secure fit. For more information on glove sizing, consult our Baseball Glove Size Guide. Select the material you would like as gloves are made from various leathers. The material can affect the durability, performance, and break-in process. Finally, consider your budget. BaseballMonkey offers a wide range of gloves for any price point. You can find our complete selection of gloves here.
