Best Shortstop Gloves

Shortstop is a premier position in baseball, perhaps the most important position on the diamond. It's the most demanding defensive position in the game and calls for the best fielder to tend its position. More balls are hit at the shortstop than any other position. Therefore, the player must have exceptional range and quickness. They also must be using the correct glove. And while there is no such thing as the perfect shortstop glove, we will take a look at some of the best shortstop gloves for this position!

Without skipping a beat, let's get to it.
