Fits Like a Glove

patentBack in the 1880’s, a forward-thinking owner of a sporting goods store in St. Louis took note of a handful of baseball players who were starting to use fielding gloves and thought he could make a better glove.

In his application to the U.S. Patent Office, this enterprising businessman designed a glove that used padding for the “prevention of the bruising of the hands when catching the ball.”

Though it doesn’t much resemble the gloves we use today, it’s fascinating to see the mind of George Rawlings at work.
