Your Guide to Buying A Softball Glove
All gloves will have four parts: the webbing, fingers, heel, and palm. The webbing can have different designs and lengths depending on the type of player it is made for. For instance, an outfielder will generally want a glove that has deeper pockets to be able to catch fly balls. Middle infielders will want a shallower web to get the ball out of their hands quicker, and a catcher will need extra padding and smaller webs. Manufacturers vary but one will definitely see gloves like Rawlings, Wilson, Marucci, and Louisville Slugger on the market.
There are two main things to consider when buying a softball glove. The first is to determine what arm you use to throw the ball. If you throw with your left arm you will buy a glove that fits your right, and vice versa. The second important thing is determining what position you play. Catcher mitts will have different specifications than a first-base mitt, which will have different specifications than an outfielders glove and so on.
