Batting Gloves utilizing 3M™ Gripping Material are much more than ordinary batting gloves: They are hitting gloves, designed to bring science to the art of hitting. Comprised of thousands of micro fingers, 3M gripping material greatly enhances traction and grip upon contact with your bat, allowing for better bat control and improved hitting performance.
Take a pair to the plate and feel the difference.
Grip lighter, hold tighter, even in wet conditions. Successful hitting—whether a softball or baseball—is all about the secureness of the bat while gripping it between your hands. Strategically placed where glove meets bat, 3M gripping material gives hitters maximum hold with minimum effort. That means more bat feel and control with less fatigue, important for every at-bat. While typical leather batting gloves and wraps tend to be unpredictable in wet conditions, gloves with 3M gripping material maintain their gripping power and properties even in the rain, especially when the bat is also wrapped with 3M gripping material tape. No sweat. No rainout.
Get our grip, increase your batting performance. In a study* with NCAA Division II varsity baseball players, bat speed increased 4.4% for players using batting gloves with 3M gripping material compared to leather gloves, which translated into hitting the ball 16.6 feet farther. In a game where even a small improvement in performance can make a huge impact, that extra distance could be the difference between a base hit and a home run. * Study details can be found at www.3M.com/gripping.
Other performance benefits with 3M™ Gripping Material: • Helps keep the bat in the hitter's hands and out of the stands • Eliminates messy, inconsistent, costly pine tar or adhesive sticks; and no more stiff, cracked gloves due to pine tar buildup • Provides a superior alternative to tackified batting gloves, which lose their effectiveness with time and usage
