A great glove is one of the most important pieces of equipment that a player can buy. Many think it is the final piece of equipment in what you would need to make that stab at shortstop or robbing that homerun in the 9th. Not all gloves are created equal in terms of quality. There are many factors to consider when buying and, in this case, the most important factor is that the glove be for a left handed thrower.
No matter which glove you choose to buy, the position you play is going to make a difference in the kind of glove you purchase. For the most part, you are going to want a smaller glove if you play the infield so you can make quick transitions from the glove to the hand to throw people out. On the other h and, you’ll need a bigger glove with a deeper pocket if you are in the outfield to offer more room and control when you catch the ball.
All that said, there are still a lot of options out there in terms of picking a high quality left handed baseball glove. This is why we’ve compiled this list of some of our favorite baseball gloves for lefties. This list will provide a product description and list of features so you can make a more informed decision when you are ready to buy.
