How much is my budget? Baseball gloves come in a wide range of prices. Many can be found for under a $100 but high end brands can be over $200. If you are looking for quality and something that lasts longer then you will have to pay the price. If you plan on playing for years, then spending the extra money might suit you better. Cheaper doesn’t mean you will save money in the long run. On the other hand players that are still growing may find it better to go with something cheaper.
Let me explain. Scoring baseball games means keeping an account, on a score sheet, of what happens in the game. Some people just keep track of outs, hits and scores. That’s fine and a good place to start, but my breakthrough to understanding was the result of tracking every pitch. I liked to say that I could reconstruct an entire game with my scorebook. That’s a helpful tool because you do not know what play will end up being particularly important. An outfielder’s assist in the third inning might prove to be a pivotal point. You’ll see that more clearly when you’re able to review the entire game after the fact.
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.
