    I just came across this site while browsing the net, and it brought back memories of my college days when we played baseball, or rather softball. I like the fact that you explained in great detail all the features of the baseball gloves that cost less than $100 and explained the pros and the cons as well. I also like the fact that you included a good range of related products and given the vast choice, I would say WILSON A700 BASEBALL GLOVE SERIES is the best choice, as it has the best features and provides the best value for money. Would you agree?.

    Thank you so much for providing this baseball gloves under US100. those gloves really fit in my budget, because I want to buy a gift for my nephew. He is a left-handed player. I think he will love WIlson A900 glove, and it’s good that this glove is also suitable for left-handed player. Just in case, is there any additional concern when buying a glove for left-handed player? Thanks

      Hello, Alblue, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      The only thing you need to have in mind, about the glove, is that left-hand player throw of course with his left hand, so the glove is in his right hand.

    I played baseball as a young child but never on a team or in a league. More than likely my parent would never spend this much on a baseball glove but I would have loved to have one. We always had the cheaper baseball gloves from K-mart but honestly, they work pretty well.

    Why should someone choose to purchase these baseball gloves over say a glove for $10 – $20? Why are these glove so special?

      Hello, Salvatore V Jenkins Jr., and thank you.

      We always need to think about the budget, and that is a significant thing to do, not only here but always in life. One of the goals with this site is to help people to find necessary gear for all kind of budget and all kind of ambition.

      Because using the right gear can help a lot about the performance.

      But there are more things which come in the picture that the number in the price label. It can be cheaper to use better quality things because most of the time you can use it longer. So, in the long run, it is, in many cases, cheaper. More durable things with right treatment last much, much longer in most cases.

      On the same time, we need to have in mind that it not always better quality in more expensive things. That is the reason there are so many guides about what to have in mind on this site. If you know what you are looking at, there are much more chances that you find the right product with as many benefits for you as possible.

      With all that in mind, there is an excellent article about the best Baseball gloves under 100$. You can see it here. There are many great products for a great price!

      You were talking about kids, but these gloves are for all ages. It is a high-quality glove for kids and adults who have the ambition to play well and be good in this sport. That kind of gloves will understandable always cost more but, again, can be cheaper in the long run because of the massive quality in it.

      So if you have this in mind and think too about the excellent quality in it, looking at all the small but crucial details, I believe you understand that these gloves have an excellent price comparing to many others.

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

    It’s funny thinking back on my younger days when I played ball.  If a glove was $20 it was considered expensive.  Times do change.

    You have done a good job here outlining the features of the different gloves which can be bought for less than a hundred bucks.  Some of these brands were not around when I was growing up.  

    I probably still have an old glove or two around in storage.  I will look for them at some point.  I think they are Wilson but not sure.  I also had a Spaulding glove in the past if I recall correctly.  

    These days $70 seems very reasonable for a baseball glove.  Thanks for the info and bringing back some memories.  My nephew is in Little League.  I am now curious to see what brand he uses.  All the Best.

    My son is just starting out on baseball and I needed to get him some gloves. I saw so many different ones I was lost on how to get the best that wouldn’t be too expensive, hence my search on the net.

    Reading your article has really thrown a great light to what I needed.

    I am going with two choices right now, and I hope you can advise me on which of these two picks will be better for a kid of 6 years old?

    Wilson A900 series catches my fancy because it goes for both left and right-hand throws so at his age I believe both sided glove should work for him, but I dont know if they are available for kids his age?

    Then I also like this Academia Rookie series for the same reason as above. I just dont know which amongst the two will be best for 6 years old, and I hope you can help me out with that?

    Thanks.

      Hello, Queen, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Great to hear about your benefits of the article.

      I understand you well, there are a lot of great gloves on the market these days.

      First of all, you don´t need to buy gloves for both hands. He will always use the hand that he throws better with and has the glove on the other.

      Both Wilson A900 and the Akademia is an excellent glove. But as he is very young and we don´t know what happens, I would recommend starting with Academia. Many players keep using it if they have started with it and that is huge praise. It is a smaller brand than Rawlings and Wilson, but the leather is excellent plus the design, very comfortable to use.

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

    I feel like this article will certainly be of help to many people! I especially believe to be true for those just getting into the game of baseball. The reason I say this is because many people don’t want to be purchasing $300.00 gloves when just starting and “testing the waters.”

      Hello Kohl, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Great to hear about your benefit of the article too.

      I agree that when people start in a new sport, kids, and adults, it is better to buy cheaper things when they are finding out if they like it. And to, it takes time to learn things and the difference in gloves are much between position, so they need to find out too which position they like, or are best in if we want to say so.

      Even so, you need to remember it is crucial to use good things as these gloves all are.

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

    I enjoyed reading this post, and it brought back memories for me as well. Days, when life was simpler and being outdoors, was more the place to be. No such thing as Nintendo back then.

    My grandson will be old enough to play ball in a couple of years. It would be great to give him a glove as a gift to start out.

    I did notice, however, that in several cases, there was a difference in price for the left and right-hand throw? Could you elaborate on why this is so? Is it more costly to make one than the other?

    The Akadema Rookie Series. Funny how it only appears to be available in Right Hand Throw. If so, then this would be another con. But still, seem to be a good glove.

    Lots of great choices here.

      Hello Wayne, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Yes, I agree. It is good for all people to be active. And doing something they enjoy, have passion for and/or have fun with is helping them to be active.

      And too, if they want to have success in some sports, they need to practice and play it, no computer do it for them.

      About the difference in the price, I have seen it but are not sure why it is. But I believe it had something to do with the cost as there are more right-handed people than left-handed. But again, I am not sure why it is.

      But there are many gloves which are only for handed. But I have written about great left-handed gloves from Akademia, and on an excellent price. The name of it is Akadema Rookie Series Youth Baseball Glove Review. You can see it here. It is both for left, and right-handed, so that is not a problem.

    After you determine the proper size and style and buy your fielding glove, you’ll probably immediately notice that it’s stiff and doesn’t have the pocket needed to catch fly balls and ground balls with ease. Part of breaking in your glove is forming a pocket.

    Forming a pocket can be done in several different ways, and the ideal method depends entirely on player preference. Some players use a microwave and swear by it (we don’t recommend it), but others believe there are better ways to do it. Thanks for this wonderful and insightful article.

    I can’t thank you enough for this piece. Without much experience in baseball, I was lost when my nephew asked me to get him the gloves. And you know with the sales language when it comes to most products, you never know which will work. Now I not only know what to look out for, but now I know exactly what I’m going to get.

    I definitely agree that if you have the wrong type of glove, you can get that bad hop that goes against you, especially in the infield where what position you play affects the way the ball bounces.

    I have pitched or played 1st base for most of my life, and I have found that using a 1st baseman glove when I pitch really helps with my ability to get the ball that comes straight back at me.

    Thanks for the overall review of the different budget gloves out there. Comfort is what counts, not price. Cheers

    Thanks a lot for sharing this information. Although these wonderful eye catching and budget friendly base ball gloves may be perfect  for different players. Personally, I recommend the Franklin sports field master especially for kids because the great feeling of comfort and the nice fit it offers the player’s hand. It just makes pitching and catching seem easy.

    My son likes baseball a great deal, and I have wasted a lot of money changing his baseball gloves. The last one I bought was made of leather, but the material affected the skin around his hand. Apart from price, I think skin allergy should also be included as a factor of choice. Going through your article, I decided to buy the Rawlings Select Pro Lite Baseball. My son wanted this just because of Rawlings’ name, even though I selected it based on its features. Thanks for the great review.

    Hi there,

    My son just subscribed to a baseball club, and he needs all the equipment to play. His friend borrowed him his gloves, but now he needs them back. However, I want to buy him those gloves:). I think the Wilson A900 will fit the bill as it’s perfect for beginners. However, I just clicked on the link, and I saw it’s currently unavailable. When do you think Amazon will have those again?

    Thanks a lot!

      Wilson A900 is excellent! You can see a deeper review of it here.

      I was checking, and it is back on Amazon. Sometimes, it is sold out, but normally it doesn’t take much time to come back.
