How to Choose a Pitcher’s Glove
4/5/2010
As a pitcher, the game is in your hands—Walk confidently to the mound or circle with a top-quality Rawlings glove.

Rawlings has more than 100 gloves perfectly made for pitchers, so use the following tips to find the one that’s just right for you or the pitcher in your family:

• Most importantly, make sure the glove is comfortable on your hand. Its size doesn’t matter as long as you can focus on your pitches.

• Choose a glove with a closed web to hide the ball and your pitching hand. Rawlings Modified Trap webs are tailor-made for this purpose. Other popular web styles for pitchers are the Basket, Basket Connector and Two-Piece Solid webs.

• Consider getting a finger hood to conceal your index finger.

• If you’re a softball player, look for a glove that is a little larger in the pocket and longer in length for better ball handling.

Jc43 of Ojai, Calif., is happy he choose Rawlings’ Heart of the Hide 12-inch glove: “If you are looking for a glove for pitcher or infielder, this is gonna be a great choice for you. It has a really good web, palm pad, index finger pad and a good look. Once you break in this glove, you are going to find out how amazing it is,” he wrote in an online review.

Ajb2 of Southern California stands by his Sandlot 12-inch glove: “Great glove for pitchers. I play 3-6 games every two weeks, and this glove always performs.”
