Buying Tips

First base gloves are similar to a catcher’s mitt—they’re designed to field and scoop the ball from dirt. A wide, claw-like shape and open pocket aids in catching from infielders.

An open pocket design lets you get under your glove to catch fly balls. Look for a glove with lightweight padding beneath the palm of the glove for protection and impact absorption. Leather lacing ensures minimal break-in and maximum durability. An open back promotes better wrist mobility.

Expert Advice

The pocket of a first basemen’s glove is generally larger, deeper and stronger than the typical fielder's glove.

First basemen face a unique set of demands on the diamond—and they need a specialized glove to perform at their best. First base mitts feature longer, separate finger compartments lined with plush padding. This construction gives first basemen more protection and enables them to scoop balls from dirt.
