Batting Gloves – the Science of the Swing
The mechanics of hitting a ball are complex, involving all parts of the body. Feet, hips, shoulders, and arms perform a precise chain of actions, culminating at the hands. You may “swing” the bat with your arms, but your hands determine if you hit the ball. The lower hand directs the knob toward the path of the pitch, then the upper hand delivers the final snap to connect. That critical split-second calls for precise feel.
Way back in the early, hurly-burly days of the game, batting was a bare-fisted affair. Between sweat, rosin, pine tar, cold temperatures, rain, and callouses, maintaining a reliable grip and exerting consistent bat control was an ongoing issue. Enter the modern baseball era, where quality batting gloves are a vital gear choice to succeed at the plate.
