Spalding Baseball Gloves

Assuming you’re in the market for a glove, you probably aren’t aware of the brand Spalding. Or you didn’t realize that they made ball gloves. Spalding baseball gloves are not as popular as some of the other name brand gloves. But still, don’t be fooled. Spalding does make multiple top line gloves that will be cheaper than some Wilson’s and Rawling’s but still offer all the top qualities.

History of Spalding

Spalding was founded in 1876 by Albert Spalding, in Chicago. Now headquartered in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Spalding makes equipment for baseball, basketball, football, and soccer. In 1982, the Spalding baseball was adopted by both the National League, and the American League, to be used as their official ball.

Fun fact: During WWII, Spalding partnered with five other companies to produce the M19 rifle.
