BASEBALL GLOVE.

Application filed September 22, 1921.

gloves and has reference more particularly to gloves used in playing the game of base ball and commonly known as fielders gloves,

and an object thereof is to produce an article of said class in which the tendency to rip or tear between the fingers at their juncture with the body portion of the glove, when subjected to the strain of use, is obviated.

Another object is to produce a glove in which added strength is given at the point of the base of the fingers, and withdrawing the strain at that place.

A still further object is to produce a glove in which the fourchettes are welted together at the back and attached to the palm of the glove.

Another object is to produce a glove of said class which will give better wear when the player brings the back of hand in contact with the dirt.

As baseball gloves of this class have heretofore been made, the palm or front portion and the front of the finger portions comprised an integral piece of material, preferably of flexible leather.

Upon this portion the fingers were built of separate pieces comprising the back and adjacent sides of the fingers, and being united to the front portion by longitudinal seams and the backs of the finger portions were united to each other by transverse seams in the crotch between each of the fingers. Such construction produced the weakest portion of the glove at the point where the greatest strain occurs in use, to wit: in the crotch between the fingers at the juncture of the two seams of stitching which united the front and back portions of the fingers and the back portions of the fingers with each other.

In my invention the backs of the fingers are formed by three fou'rchettes, each fourchette constituting a half finger back, the fourchettes being welt seamed together and Serial No. 502,360.

attached by welting to the palm of the glove, the welt-s being placed at the back and. join- 111%{11} the tip of the fingers.

0 these ends the invention includes the particular construction, combinations and arrangements of parts to be hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawings in which:

Figure 1 1s a plan view of the back of a;

* F lgure 2 1s a plan view of a blank confielders glove embodying the invention,

stituting one of the fourchettes, and

F 1g. 3 is a transverse section through the middle fingers as taken on broken line 3-3 of Figure 1. 7

Referring now more specifically to the drawings, 5 indicates a baseball glove asa whole, the palm and front fingers being as usual integral.

The back of. the glove is made up of three fourchettes 6, the thumb back 7, the outer section 8 of the little finger and the wrist se-v curing strap 9, the glove having'the usual padding 10 and the linings 11. The glove is also provided with an index finger piece 76.

Each fourchette consistsof an inner portion 6? and the bifurcations 6 the whole being cut from. a pattern which will give the bifurcations rounding ends and a sub-- stantially \l-notch, anda squared off inner end as at 6. These'inner ends of the fourchettes are stitched to the piping 12 which silirrounds the opening 13 in the back of the g ove.

The edges defining the ll-notch are welted to the side edges of the fronts 14 of the fingers, the welts being indicated by the refer-' ence character 16, the apex of the notch being at the crotch between the fingers; the tips 15 of the fronts of the fingers are turned rearwardly sli htly and the edges welted to the outer ends of the adjoining fourchette sections as plainly shown in Figure 1.

The side edges of the fourchettes are welt back and joining at the tip of the fingers,

tendency is given to better wear when the player brings the back oi the hand in contact with the dirt.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and. desire to be secured by Letters Patent, is-:

.1. In a baseball glove the combination with a front member comprising a palm portion and front finger portions, of a sectional back member consisting of bifurcated fourchettes, welted together at the middle line of the finger backs and constituting the finger backs, said tourchettes welted to the front finger portions at their sides, crotch and tips.

2. A baseball glove comprising a palm portion having finger pieces, and tourchettes joined. at their forward ends and along their inner edges to the finger pieces, the other edges of the fourchettes being joined directly to one another at the backs of the fingers and. between the sides of the same.

3. In a baseball glove, the combination with a from member comprising a palm portion and front finger portions, of a back comprising bifurcated fourchettes, each fourchette including one half of the back of each of two adjacent finger members.

4. A baseball glove comprising a front member having a palm portion and front finger portions, and a sectional back member, the sections welted to the sides and tips of the front finger portions and to each other, the welts at the back of the glove extending along the longitudinal median line of each finger and connected to the welt at the tips thereof.
