Baseball glove padding is made of both felt and leather. Felt padding is used in the finger region of gloves. Each finger stahl has felt padding that helps protect and reinforce gloves integrity. In palm section the gloves are padded with extra piece of leather and palm glue. Akadema is considered by many the master craftsmen of glove making. Here are couple videos on making gloves.
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia states, "Many early baseball gloves were simple leather gloves with the fingertips cut off, supposedly to allow for the same control of a bare hand, but with extra padding."
5 baseball gloves can be made by a single cows hide
None. Cows cannot make baseball gloves. Humans make baseball gloves OUT of cows.
In baseball gloves, the index finger has padding because it it the one most likely to get it. If you catch a ball just a little bit off, it is usually the index finger that takes brunt of the force. To prevent you from hurting your finger even more I would put your finger outside of your glove.
Usually around five baseball gloves can be made from one cow hide.
Bag Gloves have harder padding and are usually cheaper. Make sure you do not spar with bag gloves.
Softball gloves are made the same way baseball gloves are. Companies like Akadema make both softball and baseball gloves. See video below on how gloves are made. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcGiBodC-Mo

Because the padding protects there hands
Soccer goalie gloves differ from other sports athletic gloves because of the padding on the back of the glove to protect the metacarpals on the goalie's hand from breaking if the ball made contact with the back of the goalie's hand. These gloves are almost reminiscent of UFC training gloves except for the fact that the fingers are covered on soccer goalie gloves as well.
To protect a player's hand when catching a ball.

Gloves are made from cotton
No, Deion Sanders did not wear baseball gloves while in football. I was the head of Accessory product Development at the time and he wore specially made football gloves. Most of the gloves made for Deion were "Tactified" and often had special embossing and or debossing on the leather. Much like his baseball gloves, we often used some very colorful leather and other materials to make the gloves very flashy and special for him.
Gloves aren't critical. If you have trouble with hands going numb, look for a pair with good padding in the palms. If you ride a lot in dense woods you might look for a pair with padding over the knuckles too. Otherwise get whatever that fits and is on sale.
