Top Baseball Glove Brands
Nowadays there are a lot of different sports which are extremely popular and have big fan bases. With every single year new and new sports get a world recognition and popularity. But probably the best sport ever created by people (at least, Americans definitely think in such a way) is baseball. There are tons of traditions and symbols related to this sport. The most famous attribute of baseball, on a par with a bat, is baseball glove. And today we will tell you about top baseball glove brands from all over the world.
A baseball glove became a huge symbol of this game. Every year professional baseball players and experts choose the best infielder glove of the season, and every fan from 7 to 77 can tell you which brand have better bats and which has better gloves. We compared all the meaning and created the Top 10 baseball glove brands (but there are 13 brands because all of them are best, so you can call it the “devil`s dozen” of the best baseball glove brands).
A brand new company on this market was found only in 1998, but since that time it became one of the best baseball glove brands in the USA. The secret of such success can be in the person of the founders of the company - brothers Joseph and Lawrence Gilligan (Lawrence was a professional baseball player and knows exactly what a baseball glove should be).
Have used Akadema all my life and never liked any other brand. I am now a senior in college baseball. .
Akadema is the top craftsmen on this list. More innovation and the best workmanship. They're at the top of most list. The 44 glove? Nike? Easton? Louisville? above Akadema?
I have two boys (12&7). Akadema is the only brand they use. The gloves are made extremely well and hold up to all of the ‘wear and tear’ young baseball players tend to put on their gloves.
Nokona was found in 1934 in Nocona, Texas. Over the past 80+ years, ballgloves and baseball goods of this company are an example of high-quality handcrafted manufacture. For many people and professional players, Nokona is baseball glove brand #1 who knows how to make best gloves ever.
44 pro gloves are famous not only because of their quality but also because of the unique option provided by the 44 Pro. Every single customer is able to create and order its own ultimate glove using the website of the company. Such kind of an individual care about every customer is amazing
I've been trying to break in my 10 yr. old's Pro44 for 18 months. To rank it ahead of Rawlings or the Wilson A2000 seems like there was little research done.
In opposite to the previous companies, Mizuno is one of the world`s biggest manufacturer of sports equipment and isn’t specialized only on the baseball goods. But, the story of this company has begun with a selling of baseball sundries. Maybe that’s why Mizuno softball gloves are one of the best in the world.
Mizuno, Wilson and Rawlngs should all be above 44 glove.
Probably the oldest baseball gloves manufacturer in the USA, Rawlings is widely known because of its baseball gloves made from Horween leather (for example, in 2003 every second professional baseball player was using these gloves). And Rawlings pro preferred gloves have already become legendary ones.
Wilson Sporting Goods Company is specialized on the manufacture of goods for basketball, badminton, American football, squash, tennis, and others. The company is best known for its tennis rackets and other tennis goods. But only a little amount of people know Wilson gloves for baseball are one of the best in the USA.
Wilson is below 44 gloves? lol
Wilson #6?? Clearly in the top 1-3
Easton became a part of the list of the best baseball glove companies not as a consequence of an accident. This company provides high quality own products, and a lot of baseball professional players and experts have admitted that Easton baseball gloves seem to be almost perfect.
Another sportswear giant, Nike is considered among top clothing brands hands down. Launching large promotion campaigns with professional athletes on board, Nike builds on $30 billion yearly revenue and expands further. Sports apparel, athletes accessories, recreational clothes, the company covers every need for a person that gears up for doing sports.
Hillerich & Bradsby Company (H&B) is a company located in Louisville, Kentucky that produces the famous Louisville Slugger baseball bat. The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory in downtown Louisville features a retrospective of the product and its use throughout baseball history. H&B also makes baseball gloves, golf clubs, golf gloves and other equipment (under the PowerBilt brand).
All-Star Company became worldwide famous as a shoe company. But not so far away they decided to expand and start a production of baseball gloves. All-Star professional baseball glove seems to be almost perfect. Nowadays All-Star probably on the best new brand baseball gloves manufacturer in the USA.
SSK Sports from the very beginning was established as a baseball brand. And there is nothing surprising it has become one of the best glove brands nowadays. Such phrases as “uncommon originality & creativity," “quick & flexible” and “cutting-edge technology” perfectly describe the SSK products.
The list of the best baseball brands would not be completed without Spalding Company. Even instead of Spalding isn’t so famous as the previously mentioned glove brands (because Spalding specialized in basketball equipment and goods), it produces really qualitative products in the field of baseball.
Boombah is a professional sports equipment company that produces goods for baseball, basketball, volleyball, and others and also training and sports cloth. Boombah baseball glove was admitted as the best infield glove of the last season. In the future this company could easily bet such “monsters” as 44 Pro or Wilson.
Baseball is popular not only in the USA. And a great proof of this fact could be an existence of Hatakeyama Company which is famous for its pro baseball glove for Taiwan Baseball. Unique and brand new design of the gloves made Hatakeyama world famous company.
