As a young man, I thought I wanted to be a sportswriter. After taking a new job in a small town, a veteran sportswriter asked if I enjoyed baseball. I liked playing it but wasn’t much for watching. “You’ll learn to like it here,” he said, explaining that the community had a rich Little League, high school and junior college baseball heritage. He was correct; in sort order, I loved baseball, even watching baseball.
What Position will you be playing? Baseball Gloves come in various shapes and sizes based on the position they will be used for. An outfielder for example would choose a larger glove than those who play infield or pitcher. A first basemen has a specially designed glove that is longer with extra padding for easier catching and fielding. Catchers mitts are unique with heavy padding and only used by catchers. If you are someone that plays in many different positions then a utility glove (medium size) may be your best bet.
There is more to choosing a baseball glove than most people might think. Remember to do your research and understand the proper sizing when making your choice. Keep in mind the positions you will be playing. Always make sure to try on as many brands and styles as you can that way you can find what is most comfortable to you. Most of all just have fun and figure out what you prefer. If you have any questions you can go to Baseball Training Aids Plus.
