Infield Baseball Gloves

Last Updated on June 28, 2023

Baseball is America’s game and is one of the most popular sports in the world. Over the course of time, this game has become a national sport with unique pieces of equipment that work for specific positions. There are many companies that specialize in making equipment for baseball and this includes gloves for the players on the field. Specifically, the infielder glove is made with sure handling and easy transfers in mind.

That said, if you are looking for an infield baseball glove, you have to consider the size first and foremost. Many think that an 11.5” glove is perfect for the middle infield as it has a shallow pocket making it perfect for fielding ground balls, reacting to bad hops and easily transferring the ball from the glove to the hands. Some feel that the 11.5” infield baseball glove is too short for them because the ball might ricochet off the fingers. We see infield gloves go all the way up to 12.25” but most stay under that 12” mark.

That said, finding the length is one thing but finding a quality glove that feels good and is well made is another task. This is why we have created this list of some of the best infield baseball gloves of 2019. We hope that with a description of the glove and a list of the features, you will feel much more comfortable in your buying process. Enjoy!
