Baseball Gloves

Baseball gloves are another of those essential pieces 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 wider net to catch fly balls with.

Catcher’s mitts have heavy padding on thumbs and palms to cushion hands against hard-thrown balls. They have an impenetrable web in between the thumb and forefinger to keep balls from getting caught. A first baseman’s mitt, like an outfielder’s, is longer to create a wide net but also has a larger web to help fielders scoop up low-thrown balls.

No matter which type of glove suits your needs, choose youth or adult baseball gloves from brands like Rawlings, Wilson, Easton, Marucci, Mizuno, Under Armour, Nokona, Louisville Slugger, All-Star, Franklin, Adidas, and Nike. Some brands make gloves specifically for pitchers, but infield gloves work just as well, especially for younger ballplayers.
