Louisville Slugger Batting Glove Review
Series 7 Adult Review
Slugger’s Series 7 Adult batting glove is their top shelf grip. It runs a full palm of sheep’s skin leather that is digitally embossed for a good grip and a stretchy material on the back for a good fit. Neoprene wrists straps help with moisture control. It comes in a number of sizes. Amazon price check.
Series 7 Youth Review
The Youth Series 7 batting glove from Louisville Slugger boasts the same features as the adult version. That is, a full sheepskin palm with an embossed design for a more firm grip. Extra stretchy parts on the back make for a solid and tight fit. The neoprene wrist strap makes for a nice feel. Amazon price check.
Series 5 Adult Review
Louisville Slugger’s Series 5 Adult glove is a step down from the Series 7 version. The Series 5 still has leather on the palm, but instead of premium sheep leather, they use goat. It does boast an etched design for more grip. The strap is elastic instead of neoprene. Amazon price check.
Series 5 Youth Review
Without surprise, the Louisville Slugger Series 5 Youth glove is the same glove as the Series 5 Adult, but in smaller sizes and a few different colors. Expect the same embossed goat skin and stretchy material on the back for a good fit. Amazon price check.
Advanced Design Review
Louisville Slugger’s Advanced Design batting glove is similar to the Series 7 glove in its quality, but it has added composite material on the back of the hand and wrist for protection. The palm is an embossed leather design with sheepskin for the best grip in the business. The wrist strap is larger and covers a lot of the wrist.
