Baseball Fielder's Glove

All defensive players use a glove in order to handle and field the ball. A baseball glove is made of leather and sometimes synthetic materials. Unlike regular gloves, all the finger compartments are attached, and it is shaped to allow the player to catch the ball or hold it in place. The finger compartments are much longer and wider than a player's fingers to allow a player to better secure the ball and to make picking the ball off the ground easier. They vary in size depending on the player, there's a glove for everyone. They're typically worn on a player's less dominant hand, as the other hand is used for throwing.
