Softball Equipment - Gloves

Does your softball mitt look like it's on life support? Then it is time to get a new glove before the start of the season! We're taking a look at some of the coolest gloves around!


Softball Gloves - Wilson A0440

Wilson A0440

The Wilson A0440 is a solid choice for players new to the game because it's very comfortable and has a nice fit. The glove features a very unique "Monsta" web, which means it has a larger basket for catching the ball. One great feature is the ultra-breathable lining, which keeps your hand nice and dry throughout the game (because who wants a sweaty, stinky hand?). The grey and pink design isn't our fave, but it's otherwise a solid glove! Retail - $40 US.


Softball Gloves - Rawlins Player Preferred 11PK

Rawlinks Player Preferred 11PK

The Rawlins Player Preferred 11PK is named after the fact that it has long been a popular choice in all levels of softball. It has a comfortable feel and is easy to control. Unless you have a problem with the color red, this glove should be near the top of your list. Retail - $40 US.


Softball Gloves - Easton Black Magic 1100B

Easton Black Magic 1100B

The Easton Black Magic has a lot of features that cater to the player's comfort level. Everything from choice of soft and flexible leather to moisture control in the finger slots. This glove also has straps to adjust the fit. On top of that, it's a really good looking glove! Retail - $40 US.


Softball Gloves - Nokona Pro Elite TN1200

Nokona Pro Elite TN1200

When it comes to top of the line softball gloves, look no further than the Nokona Pro Elite TN1200. The glove is made with high-quality leather, which promises to be durable. With this glove, you'll never have to worry about its performance, but you may worry about its price because it doesn't come cheap! If you want the Pro Elite TN1200, you'd better start saving your allowance! Retail - $80 US.


Softball Gloves - Louisville Slugger Player Series LP1350

Louiville Slugger Player Series LP1350

The Louisville Slugger Player Series LP1350 has a lot of innovative features that are not common in softball gloves. It has dye-through lacing to improve durability, which was designed by professional baseball players. The glove also features thick padding on the fingers and palm, to maximize comfort and minimize bruises. The black basket surrounded by the nice brown leather makes this glove look as good as it performs. Retail - $60 US.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
