The Funnel

              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.

Here are two of the Funnel gloves made by Akadema. If you want to purchase yours contact me today at thebattingtee@yahoo.com. I am a independent sales rep that can give you more information and great deals on any of the akadema products.
