The advent of the batting glove

Posted at 9:58 AM on May 9, 2006 by Ben Tesch (1 Comments)

Paul Lukas' latest article is All you need is glove, a look into the batting glove, its history, variations, and who uses what.

There was always something I liked watching Mark Grace or Doug Mientkiewicz or Vlad bat... just something natural about it. Same with the elbow and leg armor. Any thoughts on the matter?

Those Pierzynski/Bonds elbow pads really sucked -- but I'd probably wear one if I could, and my multi-million dollar career was at stake.
