The Funnel: An open glove for infielders.
There are a number of baseball players these days bending the fingers of their gloves out during the break in process of their gloves. The infielders bend the thumb and pinky fingers of their gloves outward to keep their glove open, so Akadema has created the Funnel. A glove that stays open, naturally. How? By inverting the thumb and pinky finger. Not only does it keep an infielder’s glove open, it helps them cover more fielding surface to stop a hard ground ball up the middle or that two hopper in the hole. Which sure comes in handy when you’re looking to turn a double play.
11.5” Funnel pattern, Torino leather, I-web, dual-hinge with inverted thumb and pinky finger design, open back, medium pocket. $224.99
