What to look for when purchasing a baseball glove

what to look for when purchasing a baseball glove

What to look for when purchasing a baseball glove, there are several factors to consider to ensure you get the right one for your needs.

  1. Position-specific design: Baseball gloves come in various styles and sizes designed for different positions (e.g., infield, outfield, pitcher, catcher). Choose a glove that matches your position, as each position has specific requirements for glove size and design.
  2. Glove Size: The size of the glove is crucial. It’s typically measured in inches and refers to the length from the tip of the glove’s index finger to the heel of the glove. Players in different positions may need different sizes. For example, infielders usually prefer smaller gloves (around 11.25-12.5 inches), while outfielders may go for larger ones (12.5-13.5 inches).

  3. Glove Material: Most baseball gloves are made from leather, but there are various types of leather to choose from. Premium options include full-grain leather, top-grain leather, and synthetic leather. Full-grain leather is typically the highest quality and most durable, but it can be more expensive.
  4. Webbing Style: Different web designs serve various purposes. For example, closed webs (basket, H-web) offer more support for infielders, while open webs (trapeze, modified trapeze) are preferred by outfielders for better visibility. Pitchers often use closed webs to hide their grip.
  5. Back Style: Gloves can have an open or closed back. Closed-back gloves provide more support and structure, while open-back gloves are more flexible and lighter. The choice depends on your personal preference and position.
  6. Fit and Feel: It’s essential to try on the glove to ensure a snug and comfortable fit. A well-fitting glove will provide better control and minimize the risk of injury.
  7. Hand Orientation: Gloves are designed for left-handed (LH) or right-handed (RH) players. Ensure you choose a glove that matches your dominant hand.
  8. Budget: Determine your budget beforehand. While there are excellent gloves available at various price points, remember that a higher-quality glove will likely last longer and perform better in the long run.
  9. Break-In Time: Be aware that new gloves often require a break-in period to soften the leather and shape it to your hand. Some players prefer gloves that are partially pre-broken-in, while others enjoy customizing their gloves during the break-in process.
  10. Glove Padding: Depending on your position, you may want extra padding in the glove’s palm or fingers for added protection.
  11. Quality of Stitching and Laces: Inspect the stitching and laces to ensure they are well-made and durable. Quality construction is vital for a glove’s longevity.
  12. Personal Style: Some players prefer gloves with unique colors, patterns, or customizations to match their personal style. While not essential for performance, it can be a fun aspect to consider.
  13. Reviews and Recommendations: Read reviews, seek recommendations from experienced players or coaches, and gather insights from your peers to make an informed decision.

What to look for when purchasing a baseball glove, there are several factors to consider to ensure you get the right one for your need, choosing the right baseball glove is a personal decision based on your position, preferences, and budget. Take your time to try on different gloves and find the one that feels the most comfortable and suits your playing style.

Introducing Vinci’s newest bag the Vinci Pro Bat Backpack! We’ll help get you all ready for the upcoming baseball and softball seasons. Tired of lugging around your bats in one bag and your glove and equipment in another? Or do you find your shoulder and arm are sore just from dragging a heavy duffle bag to each game? Look no further than our new best bat back pack that will get you to your game with style and comfort. 

All Vinci bags are constructed with high density fabric to allow for maximum durability while still allowing full ventilation to air out your equipment. Measuring in at 24 inches tall, 14 inches wide and 11 inches deep, the Vinci Pro Bat Backpack is spacious and strong without being bulky and cumbersome to carry. Light, durable material means that the bag weighs in at only 5.5 lbs. This allows you to carry all of your equipment with ease. 

The Pro Bat Backpack comes with designated pockets on each side of the bag to hold up to four bats. The velcro straps secure your bats into place, allowing you to travel easily. No longer needing a separate bag just for your bats. A vented shoe compartment is perfect for when your cleats get wet or dirty during games. The mesh cover allows plenty of air circulation to dry out your cleats and prevent any dampness or odors.

The top shelf compartment of the bag can easily hold a softball or baseball helmet and keep it safe and protected. The shelf is actually attached to the bag via velcro, so if you ever need to expand the inside capacity of the bag, the shelf is easily removable. Included in that top compartment is a fleece-lined pocket where you can safely put your cell phone or watch or any other valuables that you need to take off during the practice or game. 

On the outside of our bag is an insulated compartment  for cold drink bottles, cans, or even ice packs you may need for after the game. There are compartments to easily fit up to six standard sized water bottles or cans and will keep your drinks chilled for hours. The middle of the bag is a compartment that can hold your baseball or softball glove. Our front panel is removable by a durable hard plastic zipper that won’t be susceptible to corrosion or rust. When removed from the bag, this panel can be embroidered with a team name or even your own name to add an extra degree of personalization. 

Finally, the back and shoulder straps are padded for extra comfort which definitely helps. This comes in handy, especially when carrying a full bag of equipment. Ergonomically designed so that even when full, the bag never feels like it is overwhelming to carry.  During the game, the bag is equipped with integrated fence hooks allowing it to be easily hung up in the dugout while you play. This keeps the bag from getting dirty and beat up being placed on the floor or mud. Overall, the Best Bat Back Pack has everything you could ask for in a bat bag this season!

Choosing the Right Glove for Your Child

As the days get warmer and the grass gets greener, you just know that the baseball season is right around the corner. It is considered a rite of passage for many kids in America and if we want our young boys and girls of summer to succeed in the field, we need to equip them with a proper fitting glove. This may seem like common sense but there are many parents out there who take the same approach with baseball gloves as they do with clothing: Buy bigger sizes so that the kids can grow into it. While this may work with clothing, it is easy to spot a kid awkwardly trying to field grounders in the field with an oversized glove. So before the start of the season, we here at Vinci are here to help you choose the best glove for your child’s needs!

Fit and Size:

This is probably the most important factor in choosing the best glove for your child. Their hands are always growing so it is important to properly fit their hands for each season. Many parents try to buy gloves that are much too large for their childs’ hand. Not only will this make it difficult for them to catch fly balls and scoop up grounders, you are risking some potential injury as well. A childs’ bones are not fully developed and if a glove is too large it can be cumbersome on their wrists and hands. 

Before buying a glove for the first time, it may be prudent to stop in at a store to try some different gloves on. Ideally, your child should be able to squeeze the glove shut when their hand is inside. There should also be a one to two inch space between the tips of their fingers and the top of the inside of the glove. This will allow their hand to grow slightly, but also give them enough strength to squeeze the glove closed when wearing it. Of course, some gloves may be stiff and need to be worn in, but for the most part junior gloves should have no problem being closed. 

The glove itself is measured in size from the heel of the glove at the bottom of the palm to the top of the index finger. Have a store associate measure your child’s hand so that you can find the glove that fits best. Baseball and T-ball gloves start out at about eight inches and go up from there, so if you can find the right size the first time you buy a glove, buying subsequent gloves gets easier as your child grows.


Your child is going to use this glove for every game and every practice, as well as for backyard catch with friends and family. You’re going to want a glove that is durable enough to withstand near everyday use. Most gloves these days are made from either leather or vinyl or some sort of leather-vinyl composite. Generally speaking, leather gloves are more durable than vinyl ones and last a bit longer, but of course can cost slightly more. Vinyl gloves are still durable, but are often harder to break in and just don’t seem to last quite as long as a good leather glove. The benefits are of course a lower price, especially if your child is growing quickly and may go through more than one glove a season. Either way, both materials are durable enough to withstand the rigors of youth baseball, softball or T-ball.
