outfoielder's glove
Does anyone use a glove with a trapeze web? Does the web make any difference?

team55: The only glove I play with has a trapeze web. I don't know if it makes a difference , but I play SS and love my glove. Hope it helps.

I used to use one many years ago and loved it...

This year I got the Rawlings 13.5" model and it immediately became a favorite at 1st, 3rd, some outfield.

I think the 6 finger gives a little deeper pocket due to the cut of the glove and the ball tends to "stick" a little better. I was worried at first that the ball might squirt out at the top of the web on a snow cone but it seems to stay put just fine.
I can only think of one ball that was just sizzled that hit the top of the glove that kept going - couldn't tell you if a different web would have caught that one or not.

For the outfield you should love it. You see a lot of them now being used in the MLB.

Hope that helps,

I have used a trapeze since 1966 and I have all ways like the look and the pocket it forms. It has always been a great infielder’s glove for me. I have two for the infield. Personally I have never seen a ball go thru the webbing.
