Decent Gloves, Not Good, But Decent

Pros:Cheap, cool looking design patterns

Cons:Not enough support, dye rubs off, weak palm support

The Bottom Line:

I would not recommend this product to a friend because the batting gloves are not a good deal for twenty.  You would be much better off going with another brand.


I have been a catcher for nearly ten years now and have used equipment from all the major companies, Mizuno, Nike, Under Armour, Rawlings, and so on.  As far as batting gloves go, I always wear one under my mitt hand while catching; it helps to dampen the blow and keep my glove from getting all wet from my sweaty hand.  When batting I also wear them to make sure my hands don't get wore out.  When I made the switch to try the Mizuno Samurai Catcher's gear, I figured I would also try a pair of their batting gloves. 

As I browsed my local Dick's sporting goods I found a pair of the Mizuno Vintage Pro Batting Gloves.  They were priced at twenty dollars a pair, but a sale had them going for fifteen dollars.  I quickly snatched up a pair of the black and white pattern.

Upon initial inspection, they seemed to be an average pair of gloves.  The rubbery-elastic wrist was nice because it would help to pad my wrist when wearing it underneath my mitt.  The padding at the base of the palm did not seem to really be there.  The pattern was eye catching and seemed to be a state of the art glove.  I was proven wrong upon testing.

Later that day I took my new gloves and bat to the batting cages to test them out.  The gloves did not really dampen the blow by the bat hitting the ball.  By the time I was done batting the base of the left palm was already showing some wear and tear.  I was unsure at this point if the gloves would even last a few games, let alone the season.  At practice the next day I wore the glove beneath my All-Star Pro Elite Catchers mitt.  It did a minimal job of dampening pitches compared to not wearing a glove beneath my mitt. 

The gloves ended up lasting about fifteen games before breaking.  The dye from the black sections also rub off into your hand and leave the glove designs on your hand until you wash the dye off, which is not very easy to do...  I was very disappointed by the gloves becuase Mizuno is, in my mind, a top baseball brand.  Their midgrade batting gloves do not hold up to the company standards in my opinion.
