Choosing The Right Batting Glove

Choosing The Right Batting Glove

Sep 22nd 2022

Each batting glove that Marucci offers is tailored to a specific type of player, but we have something for everyone in the line. From durability to feel, we have you covered. In this guide we break down every batting glove to help you select which batting glove fits your unique style of play.

A glove designed for feel will typically have less durability, while a glove designed with thick leather will have improved durability. However, a glove made with thick leather will have a decrease in feel. High-end gloves that are made for feel and comfort utilize premium leathers that allow for better feel but risk showing wear after prolonged use.

A structured glove utilizes more stitching and less flexibility to help you maintain your grip strength by keeping your hand in the curled position. An athlete with good grip strength will benefit from a glove with more flexibility as it opens them up for more mobility at the plate.

The sturdiness of a batting glove comes from the material used. By utilizing stronger, heavier materials and a solid build, sturdy batting gloves are great for athletes who would rather have more weight on their hands. Our lightweight gloves have less stitching and are designed with lighter materials to take excess weight off the hands to give you a more natural feel.

With the information on how we’ve categorized batting glove styles, let’s break down each glove in our line to help you decide which glove best fits your needs.

The Luxe is the most premium batting glove. Cabretta sheepskin on the back and palm gives you the feel you’re looking for, while the wrap-around strap gives you the look you want with the wrist support you desire.

Pittards® Reserve:
The Pittards® Reserve features a thinner palm material to minimize the separation of the hands and the bat. If you are an athlete who aims to maximize feel and comfort at the dish, the Reserve is the glove for you. The silicone printed back provides maximum movement, while giving your hands slightly more structure. These batting gloves are recommended for game use only.

Blacksmith gloves are the ultimate heavy-duty glove with strategically placed padding on the palm to withstand countless hours of BP. A fully wrapping wrist strap locks you in for maximum support and comfort that is noticeable the first time you put them on. The Blacksmiths are for the player who needs a durable glove that can withstand all the late-night hitting sessions in the cage.

The Signature is our most popular batting glove. This batting glove has amazing feel with stretch where you need it and structure where you don’t. As our most versatile pair of batting gloves, the Signature has features every hitter will love.
