Glove Talk is a limited series about all things leather. Marucci glove designers Eric Walbridge and Scott Carpenter sit down to have a conversation about the past, present and future of the fielding glove timeline.
Scott Carpenter is known for revolutionizing the way fielding gloves are worn by players of all levels, and Marucci Sports shares that same vision. With the acquisition of Carpenter Trade, Marucci leather now features his signature technology in the C•MOD glove line and Custom Fielding Gloves.
Eric Walbridge, glove designer and former collegiate baseball athlete found his passion for making gloves by helping his teammates re-lace their game pieces when he found himself side-lined due to a shoulder injury. Eric joined Marucci in 2018 to develop our newest glove lines. Since joining, he’s brought the Capitol, Cypress, Oxbow, Ascension, Vermilion and Acadia series to the baseball fielding glove lineup. For fastpitch softball, he has introduced the Magnolia and Palmetto series.
