Not only does it improve the value of your investment, but it creates a level of comfort that will significantly benefit any player.
DeMarini is one of the more innovative companies when it comes to youth baseball equipment and they put all of that innovation into the Versus youth batting glove.

With the sturdy materials used to make the Versus gloves, they can protect your youth hitter’s entire lower arm from injuries that other gloves are unable to prevent.

Under Armour knows how to make sporting equipment that is durable and comfortable, which are two of the most important traits of good youth batting gloves. Under Armour has put its HeatGear technology on the back of the Clean Up batting gloves to keep your hitter’s hands dry and comfortable at all times. The Clean Up batting gloves also have that sense of style that Under Armour has become famous for, which means that these gloves look great while they are helping your youth player to make better contact.
Mizuno has developed a reputation for making high quality products and the Youth Franchise batting glove does nothing to harm that reputation. These gloves look great and fit perfectly.

The design of the Franchise batting glove also helps to keep your youth player’s hands dry during those pressure situations. The Franchise batting glove even has an area where your youth player can write their name and make sure that they are the only ones who use their Mizuno gloves.
