Having the wrong baseball glove can be problematic for the advancement of your skills, but how many are really bad baseball gloves? We're going to talk about 3 things to consider when choosing a baseball glove that should help guide your decision.
In this short video, we'll discuss some of the things to consider but the 3 primary points are listed below.
Is the glove made of plastic, vinyl, or leather? Is it made of a more premium material like steer hide, kip leather, bison skin or even kangaroo, like some of the Nokona gloves?
How much are you looking to spend? How long will the glove be used? Could a used glove work? What position will you or your child be playing?
Is it an infield glove, an outfielders glove, a catchers mitt or a first baseman's mitt? How old is your child and what size glove can they easily handle at their age?
Hopefully, as you look to find a youth baseball glove, t-ball glove, infield glove, outfield glove or even a first base mitt or catchers mitt you'll be able to understand the differences in price and size.
