Choosing a new baseball glove for the season can be pretty overwhelming. Where do you start? There are so many different combinations available that it can be difficult to make the right decision. Hopefully we can provide some guidance in how to choose a new baseball glove. There are two major categories (amongst others) that we will go over, to consider when choosing which baseball glove is right for you: the length and web pattern
For St. Patrick’s Day, 2015, we teamed up with Wilson in creating the latest addition to our HomerunMonkey Custom Gloves. In the spirit of St. Paddy’s day, the newest glove will carry a special, Irish theme!
The glove is a Wilson A2000 DP15GM, Dustin Pedroia game model. It features all of the same specifications you would expect from the 11.5″ DP15, most notably Wilson’s “Pedroia Fit” which includes: longer laces, a low profile heel (for a better feel), shorter finger stalls and a smaller hand opening for those that prefer a more snug fit or have smaller hands.

This goes especially for the fielders that are considering catching for the first time. If you are new to being behind the dish, here are 3 More >
Baseball is a game of constant hand signals, pitching signs, and silent communication between players on and off the field. One position that communicates the most among players on the team is the catcher. With the catcher standing behind home plate, he can see the entire team on the field and the entire team can see him. With this power, comes great responsibility. The catcher must be a great communicator and leader on the field. He must not only be constantly practicing catcher drills for his position, but he must also remember all the signs and signals for the team More >
With summer coming to a close, baseball and softball players find themselves creeping into the dreaded “Off-Season”. What to do during this boring, game-less time? Well, many players take advantage of the down time by breaking in a new glove for the upcoming season. With plenty of time until those cleats hit the dirt again, the off-season is ideal for softening up that brand new, stiff glove. But with this, many players, coaches and parents find themselves wondering, “What is the best way to break-in a new glove?”. Hopefully we can shed some light on this popular topic.
