We at Diamond Ready Baseball Gloves want to give you the most information we can in selecting the correct glove. Each position on the baseball field requires different types of gloves to help the player field his position to their best ability. And selecting an infield glove is no different.
Infielder's gloves have several different web designs that cause the ball to react differently in the glove when the ball hits the web and those are factors in choosing a glove. Choosing a web design is a personal choice and all of our Shoeless Joe models work well in the infield.
We at Diamond Ready Baseball Gloves have several different web designs; closed web, I web, H web and trap webs. A closed web design is a single patch of leather attached to the glove. This design allows for a quick transition from glove to hand without the risk of getting fingers stuck in the web while retrieving the ball.
An I web design gives a player several advantages using this type of glove. This I web design stops the ball from spinning when hitting the web which allows for a quick transition from glove to throwing hand. This I web design also gives a player more vision on popups because of the open spaces between the patches of leather.
The H web is similar to the I web but has even more open space between patches of leather. A great glove for stopping the ball in the webbing and again allows for the quick transition from glove to throwing hand.
Our Trap styles are varied and have a little different reaction when the ball hits the web. Our Modified Trap and Tennessee Trap style gloves are going to act similar when the ball hits the web. The ball is going to roll to the pocket after hitting the web on a grounder. The Six finger Glove will act similar but not as pronounced. All three designs are great at snagging balls in the hole and stopping the ball immediately. They do have much more lacing in the web than the other models.
Please view our glove sizing section to maximize your knowledge on choosing your glove. Choosing the correct size is more important than choosing the correct web design. Using both sections will help increase your ability to choose the right glove.
