I am now a graduating high school senior and I talk often during school about my beloved Redlegs. I was talking with one of my teachers about the game yesterday and we talked about the lack of hitting, etc and then my teacher brought up a good subject of a debate. How important is it for a firstbaseman to wear a firstbaseman's glove?
This comes to debate with EdE making the late game transfer to first base. I would hope that he is much more comfortable using the normal infield glove than the firstbaseman's glove. So was it necessary to use a firstbaseman's glove? Would it help him catch the ball better with a glove? Perhaps with the bigger webbing it would help him dig balls from the dirt which is probably helpful considering the accuracy of our infield arms. But, wouldn't it be better for EdE to use the normal infield glove? I have never made the mid-game switch from third to first, so I am wondering what some of your opinions are on this topic.
