A brief Baseball Glove History
Early baseball was a game played without gloves. The earliest gloves were not webbed and not particularly well suited for catching but was used more to bat a ball to the ground so that it could be picked up.
Many early baseball gloves were simple leather gloves with the fingertips cut off, supposedly to allow for the same control of a bare hand but with extra padding.
In 1920, it was suggested that a web be placed between the first finger and the thumb in order to create a pocket. This design soon became the standard for baseball gloves.
The baseball glove has come a long way in over the past century. Today, gloves are made more precisely and more efficiently. There are still many advancements coming in the age of the baseball glove.
