Although opening day is quickly approaching, there is still plenty of time to both buy and break-in a new mitt for the outfield. Even if that glove is a high quality mitt that you can’t squeeze right away.
And choosing the right one is of utmost importance, as there are too many options to choose from. But we tested a bunch of outfield gloves and compiled the best ones for the 2019 season:
3. Rawlings Pro Preferred PROSMT27
Not many people are fans of the trapeze web. The narrow yet deep pocket this web creates is certainly not for everyone, and the odd close of the pattern is difficult to maneuver without practice.
But if you’re a fan of the trapeze web, there’s no better option than the PROSMT27. At 12.75″, it has both the length and the depth needed to track down fly balls in the outfield.
We wouldn’t recommend this to outfielders who’ve never used a trapeze web glove before, but if you’re a trapeze web fan or just want to try something different in the outfield, this glove is for you.
2. Wilson A2000 1799
Wilson offers a lot of options for outfielders, but none are better than the 1799. At 12.75″, its pattern has the necessary width and depth to play the outfield at a high level.
If you’re a strict Wilson user, this is the glove you should get for the outfield for 2019 and beyond. It’s not only the best Wilson offers, but one of the best outfield gloves on the entire market.
1. Rawlings Pro Preferred PROS3039-6CC
The best outfield glove for the 2019 season is the
Rawlings Pro Preferred PROS3039-6CC, a 12.75″ glove in Rawlings’ famous 303 pattern.
It’s #1 because everything about it is perfect for the outfield: the deep pocket, the optimal pocket width, and the perfectly contoured fingers. And the materials on this glove are top-notch, too.
If you’re looking to make 2019 your best season in the outfield yet, definitely pick up the PRO3039-6CC in enough time to break it in for the beginning of your season.
