You Don't Catch A Baseball with "Two Hands" ... You Catch it with Your Glove. The Bradley Baseball Story
The only baseball glove company focused on kids aged 4-15, Bradley Baseball is committed to making the game as fun as possible from the earliest ages. By offering young ballplayers a complete line of gloves (from 9.5" - 12.5") that fit properly, break-in easily and, most of all, help a kid develop confidence, Bradley gloves are game-changers. Our inspiration comes straight off the diamond, where we've watched kids struggle for years with name-brand gloves that only frustrate and make the most basic skill in the game - catching the ball - way too difficult. After hearing adults yell at kids to use "two hands" or, worse, "just block the ball," we set out to design gloves that will help kids emulate the pros, who snatch grounders and short hops, stab linedrives, and rob home runs, not with "two hands," but with their trusted leather. It's all about confidence.
Founded in 2016, Bradley Baseball Gloves were years in the making. Former major league baseball writer Jeff Bradley noticed, while coaching his two sons on the youth level, that the quality of kids baseball gloves was not only lacking, but making the game less fun for youngsters who were just getting started in the sport. A former infielder and the younger brother of former major league catcher (and current Princeton University coach) Scott Bradley, Jeff started working with a glovemaker on patterns and sizes that would enable young players to quickly trust that their glove would do the job it was asked to do, to secure the ball. Focusing on the pocket (the area between the heel of a fielder's hand and the lower half of the web), Jeff insisted that all Bradley gloves have a pocket that, while soft, also holds its shape. Obviously, a kid still needs to practice, work on his hand-eye coordination, but with a Bradley glove, he will see his work rewarded. Once he's got the glove adequately broken-in, it will work for him. We believe we will change the game for kids who give us a shot.
