Hey. Do any of you play softball or baseball? What do you do about the glove? My husband wants to play softball and he was hoping not to buy a leather glove.

I did a search a few years ago and all I came up with were small kids gloves that were mostly synthetic but had leather ties on them, and some super expensive custom-made vegan gloves. Not that I play hardly ever, ha, but I was sort of thinking about joining a softball team for fun. I'll watch this thread and see if anyone has found anything good since then.

I got a second-hand glove. Its leather, which I don't like, but I couldn't afford a brand new one.

Yes! I was so glad to see this thread. I'm a huge baseball fan and I'm looking at getting more active. The other day a co-worker started looking into softball leagues that we could join, we are looking at getting a work team together (which shouldn't be hard since we are a big company). I'm super excited, but I need a glove as well as a batting glove.

I've still been looking, but basically confirmed what I thought which is that the only option is the super expensive custom glove from Carpenter Trade.

I found this post which has some good tips, but this person ended up getting the custom glove made:

So unfortunately someone who wants a cheap fielding glove is shiitake outta luck. My mom has three old leather gloves so I'll probably end up using one of them if I need one, but the thought doesn't make me super excited.
