    Wow, this is a very great post on all the details one needs to know the difference between a softball and a baseball glove. I don’t really know much about baseball gloves, but my brother is a big fan of the game, and he trains with a local baseball team here. I saw him arguing about this topic a few weeks back with a teammate. Well, I’ll share this post with him so he too can learn about the glove and know what to look out for when next he decides to buy a new baseball glove also. Overall, this post is well-drafted and beneficial. Beat regards!

    Wow! It is so interesting to read about baseball. Though I do not play the game, my husband is a team coach of a local baseball team, and my son plays it too. I know definitely that the baseball glove is very important to a player. It is funny to think a softball glove van works well as a baseball glove. It just doesn’t work that way. The constituent and the thickness of the baseball makes it way much more suited for the game and cannot be compared. Thanks

    Thank you for this article. You are really an expert on sports equipment. I never knew much about any of this. But I was wondering about the difference between a baseball and softball glove. Thanks for that great table to help lay it out clearly. I mean this article is practically an e-book in itself. That’s smart to wrap the ball in the glove to maintain its shape in the offseason. I hope baseball players will find your website. A very well written and helpful guide. After reading it, any baseball player will be an expert too.

    My boy will be really excited to see me reading about baseball. Thanks for this really important post I am glad to have come across it, and it will help me in deciding the type of glove to buy for my son who is a big fan of God William. I would love to buy him a baseball glove. Any suggestion about gloves, let us say 100 dollars?

      Yes, I have ideas about that. I wrote a review about great baseball gloves under 100 dollars like you are asking about in your comment. You can see it here.

    My child plays first base and then outfield, depending, so what would you recommend.  I see different gloves are recommended, the first base glove with the single post web, and the outfielder with the dual post web design.  Which would be best for both applications?

    I can’t thank you enough for your article.  I honestly never even realized all the different choices and uses for gloves, and now that we have this, I feel we are better equipped to buy the best glove we can for our child.  Thank you so much.

      I
      agree with you that it is important, very important, to have good gloves. And as you say, it needs to be right gloves looking at the position they play.

      On
      the same time, we need to have in mind that things can change with children, both positions and interest. So we should have that in mind and choose good gloves which don’t cost too much at the same time.

      A few days ago, I wrote a review about the Akadema Rookie Series Youth
      Baseball Glove Review. Many players who have started to use gloves from
      Akadema has been so happy with it that they keep using it when they are older. And it is a reason for it because it is very comfortable. 

      Your
      child can use these gloves both on first base and as an outfielder. You can see the review here.

      The
      Wilson A700 Baseball Glove Series is another glove I want to mention;
      it is ideal for all positions! And on an excellent price as well. You can see a review about it here; it is the third glove I talk about in the review.

      Don´t hesitate to contact me if I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions.

    It is an excellent guide on choosing and caring for a good baseball glove. The history of the baseball glove was fascinating as well as the reasons for fingering out a glove. Do you have a favorite brand of glove? It has been years since I played, but I always loved my Rawling glove. Thanks for posting!

      There are many good brands on the market these days. But I have three favorites. It is Akadema, Wilson and, like you, the Rawlings! All of these brands are excellent.

    It is a fascinating and informative post.

    I must admit that I never realized how much went into the making of these gloves. In fact, I found it quite a fascinating read, this post is in-depth, and you have gone into great detail and described every aspect of the baseball and softball glove, I now know everything I will ever need to know about the difference between a baseball and a softball glove and how much time and effort goes into making them.

    Thank you for sharing.
