Bat Club USA carries a large selection of both baseball and fastpitch gloves so that you can easily find the right glove. Browsing gloves by type allows you to browse through various materials, sizes, and styles while still ensuring that you’re purchasing the right type of glove.
While the gloves in fastpitch and baseball are used similarly, there are various ways that they differ, which is why you must purchase the right type of glove for your player. Below are a few of the ways that fastpitch and baseball gloves differ from one another.
One of the most notable ways that these gloves differ is in the design. Given the size difference in the balls used for baseball and softball, the pocket of the glove will vary from a baseball to a softball glove. Gloves will also vary in web design. Since baseball gloves don’t require as deep of a pocket, they’re able to offer a larger variety of web designs than softball gloves.
Another area that fastpitch and baseball gloves will differ is in the available sizing for the gloves. While they do look to be similar sizes, they are not based on the same sizing chart. The available sizing will really come into play when looking for position-specific gloves. Aside from available sizes, the gloves will also vary in the size of the opening. Since fastpitch is most commonly played by females, the openings are often smaller to create a snugger fit.
