Baseball mitts are common part of a baseball players’ equipment. These special baseball gloves are made of different types of leather. Mitts can be only worn by the catchers or by the first basemen. It is very important to know that mitts are gloves that are made without fingers.

In the beginning of baseball, catchers used to play with bare hands. However, today catchers wear mitts. Doug Alison that played in the Cincinnati Red Stockings in 1870 was the first player, who had mitts on his hands. However, there are some speculations that Charles Waite was the one who used them first.

In 1920, Bill Doak made a suggestion how to improve baseball mitts. After that, they were made with and a pocket. That pocket helped the catchers to catch the ball much easier.

For instance, their Bloodline series offers high quality materials and the best fit. However, some other companies produce gloves for various positions in baseball. One of them is Rawlings. Moreover, Rawlings is also successful in producing youth gloves.

Though all mitts are made of leather, different companies choose different leathers to make the gloves. Buffalo, kangaroo, or cowhide leathers are usually used in their production. The gloves are machine made, though custom made gloves are also available. Ordered gloves, are made by hand, so their price is significantly higher.
