A large, cushioned, leather glove is worn by the players of the defending team that allows catching the ball. The shape and size of a player’s glove varies, depending on his position on the field. A catcher’s glove also known as Mitt doesn’t have finger holes and has a longer pocket than other fielders’ gloves which have finger holes and are well padded to protect the fingers. Softball gloves are longer and wider than baseball gloves because these are used to catch a bigger ball.
