YEAR IN REVIEW: The Top Baseball Gloves Of 2021
Baseball gloves are always among our top selling items every year for obvious reasons. Who doesn’t enjoy getting a new ball glove? This year was one of our most interesting years as no one brand dominated the list as we have had happen in the past. In fact, this may be the most varied year we have on record.
Wilson A2K baseball gloves are always a top seller so it’s no surprise to see one kicking off this list.
The A2K® 1799SS brings together Black Pro Stock Select Leather and Saddle Tan SnakeSkin Pro Stock Select Leather with lightweight, but durable Black SuperSkin. At 12.75", big leaguers favor this glove for its incredible length and deep pocket. The reinforced Dual Post Web keeps the pocket in great condition well after it's broken in, so you can roam the outfield for years to come.
The popularity of Nike baseball gloves continued to grow this year. Make plays with ease with the Nike Alpha Edge Glove. Soft leather in the palm, laces, and shell makes it easy to open and close without having to wait through a break-in period. Synthetic sheepskin on the strap and palm pad is soft and comfortable while adding impact absorption.
Maximize your range with the 2021 Heart of the Hide Hyper Shell outfield glove. It was meticulously engineered to help you reach your full potential in the outfield. Our Hyper Shell back is 15% lighter than traditional leather, and now features a fresh, black carbon fiber design for a stylish, yet clean, look. This look is complimented by subtle mint welting and binding, and gray accents around the web and fingers.
In addition, its ultra-premium steer hide palm provides unmatched quality and performance to keep you going inning after inning. It also features a deer-tanned cowhide lining, and padded thumb sleeve for optimal comfort and feel on the diamond. Lastly, it was also crafted in our new 12.75-inch 331-pattern. This is our first outfield pattern to use double welting, for added durability. That means it plays like a traditional 303-pattern, which is popular for its large, deep pocket. As a result, you'll get a glove that can handle any ball hit its way, and catch them all.
This Hyper Shell outfield glove is perfect for outfielders looking to increase their range, and make more amazing plays. Make it your next gamer, buy now!
The Rawlings R9 Series of baseball gloves features quality Rawlings leather at an entry-level price so it’s no surprise that the R9 glove is popular with younger ballplayers.
The all new R9 Series baseball gloves are the best gloves on the market at this price point. This series features soft, durable all-leather shells designed to be game-ready. With pro style patterns and a reinforced palm pad for impact reduction, this series is perfect for the youth baseball player.
The #1 catcher's mitt among today's pro ballplayers is also our #1 glove of the year.
Exclusive Japanese tanned steer hide allows for fast break-in and extended life. A soft tan leather pocket allows for a great feel and gives the ball that extra POP which pitchers love to hear. The black leather backing is stiffer, gives the mitt the right amount of support, and increases its life. Each mitt is individually handmade.
