Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS & PRIORITY CLAIMS
  • This patent application claims the benefit of and priority to Japanese Patent Application No. 2010-103600, which was filed on 28 Apr. 2010, and is incorporated by reference herein as if fully set forth below in its entirety.
  • TECHNICAL FIELD
  • Embodiments of the present invention relate generally to protective batting gloves and more particularly to anti-shock batting gloves for use in baseball, softball, and other activities where protective covering is desired.
  • BACKGROUND
  • The history of America's pastime can be traced back to the 18th century. Baseball (and softball), has greatly evolved since the 18th century and is now an extremely popular sport among men and women. Synonymous with the evolution of baseball has been the evolution of baseball equipment.
  • Traditional baseball and softball equipment consisted solely of a bat, a ball, and a glove to protect a defending player's hand and facilitate in catching the ball. Today, baseball and softball players use specialized equipment to enhance performance and protect from the potential dangers the game presents.
  • Most baseball and softball bats have limited shock absorbing properties. The shock resulting from the impact of the bat hitting the ball is passed to the batter, thus increasing the impact to the hands. This impact can cause injury to a batter's hand. The impact can also cause injury to the lower part of the palm, as the heel of the bat is usually shoved into the lower part of the hand after the impact. A rotational momentum can also be imparted to the bat upon contact with the ball, which causes the bat to exert force across and around a batter's hand, specifically through the area between the thumb and the index finger. In light of these issues, there has been an increased demand among players for batting gloves that provide hand protection to baseball and softball batters.
  • Many attempts have been made in designing batting gloves to protect against injury. There is still a need, however, for batting gloves that further protect against hand injuries. Specifically, there is a need for batting gloves that successfully protect against the shocks, vibrations, and rotational forces encountered during batting. Embodiments of the present invention are to such gloves.
