Softball & Baseball Gloves
A good glove is arguably the best piece of softball or baseball equipment you will own.
MVP Athletic Supplies has an impressive selection of top-quality gloves and mitts that will help you reach your maximum potential on the field. We stock a variety of designs from well-known manufacturers such as Mizuno, Rawlings, Easton, Glovesmith, Nokona, and Louisville.
High-quality leather gloves are a mainstay for the serious softball or baseball player. But the busy player has limited time to break in a new glove. Products such as glove honey and glove lockers help protect and break-in new gloves—so you don't have to.
MVP Athletic Supplies also sells batting gloves for increased grip and shock absorbency.
Choosing the Right Size
When buying a glove, the most important thing to look for is fit. With time, even the best-fitting gloves lose their fit and need replacement. Your fingers should take up no less than half the glove's fingers and there should be only one finger-width between your glove and your hand. It is important to remember that a right handed thrower would order a 'Regular' glove and a left handed thrower would order a 'Right'. Our sizes range from:

More Questions about Style?
Softball and baseball gloves are unique to the player. You can choose from a range of materials, colours, laces, back styles, webs, and cuts.
It is helpful to know glove “anatomy” before making a purchase. The middle part of the glove is called the pocket, where balls are caught. Outfielders will want a larger pocket for catching fly balls; infielders need a shallower pocket to grab and release the ball quickly. The web is the area in between the thumb and the fingers. Closed webbing is stronger for third basemen and outfielders. Open webbing allows for quick handling of the ball for infielders. The heel is the bottom portion of the glove. This part should be secure and easily adjustable.
