Youth batting gloves help young baseball and softball players grip the bat tightly. A sturdy grip on the bat can lead to more success at the plate. Additionally, youth batting gloves will help the player avoid blisters on the hands. During a long batting practice session, blisters can form. It’s important to have properly sized batting gloves. If the gloves are too large, the fabric could crease, leading to blisters. A youth batting glove that’s too small could tear. Batting gloves will consist of leather or synthetic materials. Some glove designs use both materials. Leather gives more durability and a tackier grip, while synthetic materials offer flexibility and breathability. Players nearly always wear batting gloves on both hands. Most manufacturers sell youth batting gloves in matching pairs for this reason.
