Step onto the field ready for play—choose a baseball glove or softball glove crafted for a performance-feel and pro-grade durability.
Shop baseball gloves for adults, youth players, women’s softball and fastpitch, and adult slow-pitch softball. Gloves are available in a variety of materials:
Synthetic leather: Easy to close with no "break-in" required and lighter for younger players.
Softened, Oil-treated leather: minimal "break-in" and game-ready feel featuring synthetic finger stall lining.
Premium leather: Offers enhanced feel and durability with a more specific break in and fit.
Pro Series leather: Lighest quality leather, offering the elite player unparalleled craftsmanship, durability and comfort.
Every player should understand their glove construction—keep in mind these key features when making your selection:
Web/Pocket: Connects the fingers and the thumb allowing for secure control of the ball upon impact. This is where you want to catch most fly balls, pop ups and line drives.
Palm: Features padding under the leather to give the palm protection.
Heel: The lower portion of the glove, palm side, which provides protection and determines the break-in of your glove.
Lacing: Provides shape to the glove (palm side). Leather is the preferred lacing material, giving players ideal break-in and durability.
Hinge: Allows the glove to open and close easily.
Wrist adjustment: An optional feature in some gloves, providing a snug fit on a player's hand.
D-ring fastener: Allows you to pull on the lacing and make the glove tighter or looser.
Velcro fastener: Offers convenience of pulling and adjusting to fit your comfort level.
Lacing adjustment: Allows you to loosen or tighten the wrist fastener with leather laces.
To achieve your ultimate potential, choose a glove that's appropriate for your position on the field:
Catcher: A fingerless mitt with plush padding to reduce the sting from the pitcher's throw. Claw-like shape to help players close the mitt.
Pitcher: Often has closed webbing to allow pitchers to conceal their grip on the ball.
First Base: Similar to catcher's mitt, designed to scoop the ball up in dirt. The wide shape and larger pocket helps first basemen field throws from infielders.
Infield: Five-fingered glove with a shallow pocket for a quick throw to the necessary base, offering open webbing so the player throws only the ball, not the dirt that was locked in the glove.
Outfield: Features a deeper pocket and a longer glove length to catch fly balls and extend reach.
Fit: Choose a glove that fits snug. Be careful not to purchase a glove a glove too big for your hand as it could hinder performance.
Feel: Your glove should be stiff enough to give strength, yet offer the flexibility to provide control & agility.
Style: Choose a look & color that fits you while making sure the web pattern is right for your position.
