Outfielders’ gloves give baseball and softball players the right equipment to play great defense. When playing the outfield, defenders will be fielding both fly balls and ground balls. However, the outfielder rarely needs to remove the ball from the glove quickly like an infielder does. This allows outfielders’ gloves to contain a larger pocket size. Infielders’ gloves have a small pocket size so players can find and grasp the ball quickly for a throw. The large pockets allow the outfielder to corral and squeeze a fly ball more easily than with an infielders’ glove. Additionally, outfielders’ gloves often have a pocket webbing with open spaces. When the outfielder is using the glove to shade his eyes from the sun, the spaces allow limited visibility to track a fly ball.
