MLB Player Ditches Leather Glove

Yankees pitcher Brian Gordon might be the first in the league to use a 100-percent synthetic glove.

Brian Gordon, a newcomer on the New York Yankees, has done something no other player in Major League Baseball has: used a vegan mitt. The 32-year-old professional baseball player uses a glove made by the Carpenter Trade Company. He tells the Lohud Yankees Blog, “I asked more and more questions about it and it just made sense to me. I think a glove is a tool. A glove is our tool, a tool we use every day, and it may as well fit.” While some players use gloves made from a combination of synthetic materials and leather, Gordon is believed to be the first to use a completely synthetic glove.
