As someone who loves the game, you know a baseball glove is more than just gear. It's a part of you—like an extension of your hand. That why we work hard to bring you the best selection, so you can find the one that fits you, well, like a glove! Choosing a glove is a very personal thing, but here are some basic guidelines.
Position: A glove designed specifically for your position is an essential defensive tool. Catchers mitts are heavily padded to protect against the sting of a pitched ball. First base mitts trade some of that padding for flexibility, and are rounded to scoop up ground balls. Infielder gloves have a shallower pocket for quick transfers, and outfielder gloves have a deeper pocket for trapping fly balls. Pitchers gloves are similar to infield gloves, but often have closed webbing so the ball can be hidden before throwing.
Material: Leather baseball gloves are the choice of many experienced players for their enhanced durability and feel. For young players and new players trying out the game, synthetic materials are less expensive and break in quickly.
No matter which of these baseball gloves you choose, you can count on quality materials and craftsmanship. After all, they're made by the most trusted names in the game, including Wilson, Rawlings, Louisville Slugger and Mizuno. And at Baseball Savings, you can also count on the best prices, guaranteed.
