Outfielders grip


#1

Does any one heard of or do you put two fingers in the pinkey hole when playing in the outfield?


#2

yeah…nearly everyone on my team does that. and not just in the outfield. i do it at first base, and some of our pitchers even do it.


#3

I started doing it my sophomore year as well. Its supposed to help give you a deeper pocket but now i do it with my pitcher gloves as well. It felt funky at first but it now it feels funky going back the “original” way.


#4

I dont do it i play cf/p but i cant do it because we were catching flyballs before the game andi kept droping it so i tryed it the origanl way and i caught alot better but thts just me


#5

Probably more one of those things that is more personal preference, which way works best for you.


#6

A good idea would be to go out with a good hitter and just have him hit some fly balls, line drives, grounders, etc. to you and while he is hitting to you try it 2 different ways. Which ever way is more comfortable and/or you do better with…go with that one.


#7

I may be one of the few people that do this but I like doing 3 fingers in the pinky, I used to do two but after I tried three I wouldnt ever go back.


#8

I keep one finger out of the hole,
but I guess you could keep two fingers out of it.
It seems to me that it would be more comfortable to only have one finger in that hole.
