    This is definitely something that would’ve come in handy back when I played. I noticed that you mention different glove sizes for the nine positions, but what is the actual purpose of say, the second basemen and center fielder having smaller gloves as opposed to the pitcher and positions with larger gloves?

      Hi, Todd Matthews and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Like you mention the players use different sizes of gloves. The players in the positions you name use the smallest ones, but the reason is that it helps them to be quicker to get the ball out of the gloves.

      And that is very important because then they maximize the benefit of double plays. The double play is explained very well in this article here, but the basic idea is to refer to as the turning two. It is described very well in this article.

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

    This is a great tip keeping in mind that there are a number of different glove types, including differences in thrower, pockets, color, webbing, etc and those can all be based on personal preference or position. I really learnt more from this post. Keep up the good work. My question is that, What is a normal hand size for baseball gloves, I mean the average and most common size that is widely used?
