These gloves also lack individual fingers. First Base Gloves are generally very long and wide to help them pick or scoop badly thrown balls from infielders. The gloves usually have 12.5- to 21.75-inch patterns, measured from wrist to tip.
First Base Gloves are made of full-grain oil treated shell leather or Steer Hide leather.
The Wilson gloves use a superskin leather, which is twice as strong but half the weight as regular leather.
