it feels like a big piece of butter, melting on a big old pile of flapjacks.
A baseball glove protect your body and assist players in catching and fielding balls hit by batters.
No, would stick with glove experts like Rawlings and Akadema
It depends on the player. All players like a different feel for their glove so there is no standard.
No...Would go with a company like Akadema.
When you feel like doing baseball
go to DicksSportingGoods and ask them to beat it with a mallet...
No, there is no point in a baseball glove. It's just companies trying to get you to spend money on something useless so they can profit off of it. You are actually supposed to catch the balls with your bare hand. ________________________________________________________________________ That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. You buy a glove because it makes your hand 10 inches bigger in length and 6 inches wider in width (depending on the glove size.) Also, if you don't use a glove, your going to get some serious nerve damage in your hands. To the original person that asked the question., you don't necessarily need a glove, but if you like your hand where it is, and like the ability to touch and feel, I would use a glove. A lot of times you do see a player bare-hand a ground ball, and if you're Kevin Mitchell, catch a fly ball bare-handed. I was being facetious. Of course you need a glove to catch baseballs with. That was just a stupid question.
nothing really, unless it's your size Many players like smaller gloves for quicker exchange from glove to hand. Speed of game forces higher level players to get rid of ball quicker. Baseball glove manufacturers like Akadema and Rawlings make gloves specifically for this reason
The "pocket" of a baseball glove is essential where the palm of the hand is. The mesh between the thumb and forefinger is the web. Although the web seems like the logical place to catch a ball, the pocket is much more sound.
If you want to oil a new glove you should go to a sporting goods store and buy some glove oil or conditioner then you apply it the way it instructs then you can shape the glove after you do this it will help clean and restore the glove to feel like new but still broken in.
A Baseball Glove isA baseball glove is a beginning and an ending: a boy's first sure step towards manhood; a man's final, lingering hold on youth; it is promise...and memory. A baseball glove is the dusty badge of belonging, the tanned and oiled mortar of team and commaraderie; in its creases and scuffs lodge sunburned afternoons freckled with thrills, the excited hum of competition, cheers that burst like skyrockets.A baseball glove is Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle and a thousand and one names and moments strung like white and crimson banners in the vast stadium of memory.A baseball glove is the leather of adventure, worthy successor to the cowboy's holster, the trooper's saddle and the buckskin laces of the frontier scout; it is combat, heroics, and victory...a place to smack a fist or snuff a rally.Above all, a baseball glove is the union of father and son, boy and friends, man and men; it is union beyond language, creed or color.
