Why is the first base mans glove different?

The main objective of the first baseman is to catch the ball. A larger glove or mitt, would be an advantage. Infielders need to catch the ball and quickly transfer the baseball from glove to hand, to make a throw. A smaller glove has an advantage. The infielder also needs to have a feel for the ball to help grab the ball or handle tough ground balls. The first baseman's glove or mitt has extra padding and leather to protect the hand from hard throws.

The first baseman's glove is longer with a deeper pocket and generally not as wide as other infielder's gloves to help them catch balls thrown from the infielders. The majority of plays the second baseman, third baseman, and shortstop make are on ground balls and popups.The majority of playsthe first baseman makes are on throws from another infielder. Thelongerglove gives the first baseman an extra few inches to be able to catch the ball and the shorter width and deeper pocket is for a better grip of the ball once it is caught.

How do you wear in a new baseball glove?

The most natural and best way to do this is to just use the glove. Playing catch is ideal for breaking in a glove, but it can also take a while for it to get worn in all the way. Besides this, they make oil and foam that can be rubbed into gloves to loosen the leather. You can buy these at most sports stores (Dicks sells them for sure). Try putting a baseball in the pocket of the glove, and tying the glove closed over the ball with a rubber band ot string. Keep it this way for several hours (overnight).
