Baseball First Baseman's Gloves
First Baseman's Mitts
For any fielder, catching the ball is a must, but the first baseman has a huge responsibility by having the first chance to get a runner out. Because of this, first basemen have a glove that is more mitt-like, wider, and with a deeper web. This way, it's easier for them to scoop the ball, catch the ball and keep control. First basemen could get away with using a regular fielder's glove, but a first baseman's mitt will certainly be more effective because of its size. These mitts can be made for both right and left-handed players and are typically made of leather.
