Specification of Letters Patent. Paten t gd Uct. 24L, 1916,

Application filed June 14;, 1915. Serial No. 33,881.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, Huoo GOLDSMITH and EDGAR J. GOLDSMITH, citizens of the United States, and residing at Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Base-Ball Mitts, of which the following specification is a full disclosure.

This invention relates to an improvement in a baseball mitt or glove, the object being to provide as a part of the glove structure a finger-tip retention instrumentality.

The hand is substantially open when receiving the ball, and the mitt being loose fitting is liable to be thrown off the hand in quick motions, or to drop off, if the hand depends. To prevent this, we provide on the padded side, or palm side, and in each finger-tip at approximately the first-joint position, an effective abutment, providing an accentuated recess in the finger receptacle, into which the finger-tips may be engaged by slight flexation of the finger joints. This not only retains the mitt when the hand is open, but provides an effective grip when the hand slightly contracts in the act of catching, and so increases the ball-holding precision of the mitt.

The features of the invention are more fully set forth in the description of the aocompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which Figure 1 is a plan view of the back of the mitt with a portion of one finger removed. Fig. 2 is a section on line 2-2, Fig. 1.

The mitt comprises the conventional pad 1 secured by lacing 2 to the mitt piece 3. This mitt piece comprises a front piece 4:, corresponding in contour to the pad, and the back piece 5, having the finger and thumb and palm sections marginally stitched to piece 4. A medial portion of piece 5 is cut away, providing the hand insertion aperture 6, and the straps 7 are secured to the margins of this aperture. Preferably, the finger and thumb tip portions of piece 4: are cut away providing the finger tip recesses 8, and at the base of each cut out portion is a pad 9, over which the joint flexes, and which abruptly defines the finger tip recess. These pads are components of the piece 4, and form a series of humps on the pad body approximately positioned in relation to the first joints of the fingers and thumb. When the mitt is so constructed and the hand inserted the finger and thumb tips intuitively hug these depressions or pockets in the mitt extremity with a sensation of comfort and assured control over the mitt.

It will be noted with reference to Fig. 9, that the rear edge of the pad 9 is approximately flush with the piece 4, while the forward edge thereof is slightly depressed. This provides a finger passage affording an easy unobstructed ingress of the finger and also positions the pad to conform with the shape of the flexed finger-tip.

The specific method of forming the pad 9 consists of attaching a pad strip 10 to the inner surface of the piece it at points 11.

This strip prevents the main padding from working through the apertures 8 ant forms the pad pockets of pads 9.

Of course, the structure can be effected by various modifications without departing from the substance of this invention.

Having described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States 1. A baseball mitt having an individual pad in each finger portion approximating the position of the first joint, and finger tip recesses formed in the finger ends extending beyond said pads, said pads and recesses eonstituting finger tip pockets.

2. A baseball mitt having individual finger pockets, an abutment pad within each pocket, the rear edge of said pad being substantially flush with the back of the mitt, the front edge thereof being slightly depressed and apertured in the back of the mitt adjacent the pads.

3. A baseball mitt having a back, finger and thumb receiving pockets attached thereto, retention pads within the pockets having depressed forward edges and recesses in the back adjacent the pads.

4. A baseball mitt having a back, finger and thumb receiving pockets attached thereto, said back being provided with finger tip receiving apertures within the pockets, a pad strip on the inner surface of the back secured near the front and rear edges of the apertures and at a point rearwarclly of the apertures to form pad pockets transverse of the finger pockets and padding within the pad pockets forming abutments for the finger tips.

5. A baseball mitt formed with a main In Witness whereof, We hereunto subscribe pad extending substantially across the entire our names, as attested by the two subscrib- 10 front of the hand, said mitt having a back ing Witnesses. constituting thumb and finger receiving por- HUGO GOLDSMITH.
