Gordon R Slider Wy- (W BASKETBALL PRACTICE GLOVE CROSS-REFERENCES TO RELATED APPLICATIONS This is a continuation-in-part of my application Ser. No. 761,716 filed Sept. 23, 1968 now abandoned for a Basketball Practice Glove.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION In the game of basketball scoring, i.e., putting the ball through the basket, is one of the most important features of the game, and probably the most difficult to master. The ball, 9 inches in diameter, must be shot or thrown through a horizontal hoop, 18 inches in diameter, and positioned feet above the playing floor. Other important features of the game include dribbling and passing and these features as well as the ability to shoot well are, to a great extent, governed by the way a player handles the ball. As with any sport, there are a few natural players who are born with the ability to handle the ball well or to shoot accurately, but most individuals must develop and perfect their bail handling and shooting ability by long periods of practice.

A basketball may be shot either with one or two hands, but to shoot accurately consistently the ball must beheld correctly while being shot. The palm of the band should be formed into a cup-like shape, and the wrist should be loose and flexible, quite similar to the position the hand assumes when shaking hands with another person. With the hand thus formed the palm is out of contact with the ball, and control of the ball is maintained solely with the tips of the thumb and fingers of the shooting hand. Finger-tip control of the ball is also recommended for dribbling and passing and a players hand should assume the same cup-like shape when performing these acts.

The above described method of shooting is well known to those skilled in the, art, and practically all players are instructed, many times during their careers,

to shoot in this manner. However, it is a common fault,

of many players to forget the correct form of shooting, particularly during the excitement of a game. There is a natural tendency among players when shooting to spread the thumb of the hand controlling the ball to try to span it. Spreading the thumb in this manner applies additional pressure on the ball and tends to lock the wrist and limit its movement. When a basketball is spanned by a players hand the ball is no longer controlled by the tips of the thumb and fingers. The palm of the hand as well as the full length of the thumb and fingers are in contact with the ball and the wrist is locked. Shooting with full hand contact; and a locked wrist produces erratic results. The same tendency to spanthe ball and bring the palm intocontact with the ball also occurs with many players when dribbling and passing and results in poor ball control.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION Therefore one of the objects of my invention is to provide a glove which will form the wearer's hand into the correct shape for shooting, dribbling and passing a basketball.

A further object is to provide a glove which is comfortable, durable in use, and economical to manufacture.

The objects of my invention are achieved by constructing a glove of soft flexible material having palm, back, and wrist portions, and open thumb and finger portions. An adjustable strap extends between thumb and index finger portions of the glove to limit the distance its wearer can spread these members. A pad in the palm portion of the glove spaces the wearers palm from the ball, and together with the restraining strap tends to form the wearers hand into a cup-like shape so that a basketball held in the hand of a player wearing such a glove will be controlled by the tips of the thumb and fingers. A stay extending longitudinally of the back portion of the glove limits the bending movement of the wearers wrist.

PREFERRED EMBODIMENT OF THE INVENTION In its preferred embodiment my invention comprises a glove 10 having back portion 1 1, palm portion 12 and back and palm glove portions 11 and 12, respectively,

inv the usual glove construction. Thumb portion 14 and finger portions 15, 16, 17 and 18, respectively, are less than full length and have their ends open so that the ends of the fingers of the glove wearers hand will be exposed for reasons hereinafter explained. Thumb portion or sheath 14 covers the first phalanx with the second or outer phalanx uncovered. Finger portions or sheaths 15, 16, 17 and 18, respectively, are shown. with the first and second phalanxes covered and the third 'or outer phalanxes open, i.e., uncovered. Only the first phalanx of these finger portions need be covered. Index finger portion 15 has first phalanx portion designated 151, and extending over its back portion is strip 152 of pressure sensitive adhesive material, which may be secured to phalanx portion 151 by means of glue or by stitching. Preferably this pressure sensitive material is a strip of material sold under the trade name Velcro which consists of complementary or cooperating strips which adhere to one another. One of these strips is termed the fleecy strip while the other is termed the burr" strip. Preferably strip 152 is fleecy material. Wrist portion 13, as well as a part of back portion 11, section 19, are made of resilient flexible material to insure-that the glove fits the wearers hand snugly so as not to interfere with the handling of a balLHowever, wrist portion 13 of the glove may also be fitted with other suitable securing means, as for example a draw string or a snap button.

Extending between thumb portion 14 and index finger portion 15 is strap 20, which is secured to thumb portion 14, such as by stitching. Strap has inside face 201 and outside face 202. Adjacent the outer end of strap 20, i.e. the end spaced from thumb portion 14, and on its inside face 201 is a strip 203 of pressure sensitive adhesive material which cooperates with or adheres to the strip 152 of pressure sensitive adhesive material of index finger first phalanx portion 151. Strip 203 may be secured to strap 20 by means of glue or by stitching. As strip 152 is fleecy Velcro, strip 203 is burr Velcro in order that the strips will adhere. The construction of strap 20 and its cooperation with pressure sensitive adhesive material strip 152 of index first phalanx portion 151 permit the strap to be easily adjusted to control the distance between the glove wearers thumb and index finger. Palm portion 12 is provided with pad 22, generally triangular in shape, between $4 to =34; inches thick, and made from any suitable flexible material, such as foam or sponge rubber. Pad 22 may be secured to palm portion 12 by means of glue or by stitching or may be covered and held in position by a strip of material, not shown, which is stitched to palm portion 12. Triangular pad 22 has a short side 23 spaced from the outer end of palm portion 12, indicated on FIG. 2 by broken line A-A, a second short side 24 spaced from the edge of the glove covering the fleshy part of the hand, and a long side 25 extending diagonally partially across the palm portion of the glove. Extending longitudinally of the back of glove 10 is stay 26, which may be made of metal or a relatively rigid plastic. Stay 26 has outer end 27 and inner or wrist end 28. The outer end 27 of the stay is spaced from the outer end or knuckle area of glove back portion 19, in-

dicated in FIG. 1 by enclosed broken line 8-8. The stay extends longitudinally of back portion 11 beyond the wrist joint, indicated by broken line C-C, and partially across glove wrist portion 13 so that inner end 28 is over this portion. Stay 26 is maintained relatively immobile with respect to the glove back portion, and is secured to glove back portion 11 in any suitable manner, as by sewing it thereto along a portion of the stay intermediate its ends.

The utility of glove 10 is best understood by considering the manner in which it controls the shape of the wearers hand when shooting a basketball, as shown in FIG. 3. The glove is placed on aplayer's shooting hand and the hand formed into a natural cup shape, which, in the average player, causes a gap of about I% inches between the thumb and index finger. The outer end of strap 20 is then drawn across the top of index finger first phalanx portion 151, and strap pressure sensitive material strip 203 is pressed into contact with index finger first phalanx pressure sensitive material strip 152 causing the cooperating strips to adhere to one another. The correct distance between thumb and index finger depends upon the size of the wearers hand, and some adjustment may be necessary before the best distance is determined. When the final adjustment of the strap is determined, the hand, when relaxed, assumes a cup-like shape, the correct shape for shooting a basketball. Any excess length of the strap can be easily removed. When ball 30 is placed in the gloved hand and moved into position for a one hand shot, pad 22 spaces the surface of the ball from the wearers palm and further contributes to the formation of the gloved hand into a cup-like shape. With the hand thus formed, the thumb end which extends out of thumb portion 14, and the finger ends which extend out of finger portions 15, 16, 17 and 18, respectively, are able to grip the ball which is thereby controlled by the tips of these members. Any tendency to span the ball is prevented by strap 20, and the palm of the wearers gloved hand is kept out of contact with the surface of the ball by pad 22. Stay 26 limits the backward bending of the wrist thereby preventing it from moving back to a position which would cause the hand to stiffen or lock.

The strap 20 is designed to extend between the first phalanxes of the thumb and index finger portions of the glove of my invention because in this position it provides the desired control of these digits without interfering with their movement or with a ball.

In FIG. 4 there is shown another version of my glove. Extending outwardly from thumb portion 14 toward the index finger is strap 20A and extending outwardly from index finger first phalanx portion 151 is strap 20B. Strap 20A is secured to thumb portion 14 and strap 20B is secured to index finger first phalanx portion 151 by stitching. Strap 20A has a strip 204 of pressure sensitive adhesive material, and strap 208 has a strip 205, shown in dotted line, of cooperating pressure sensitive adhesive material. Strips 204 and 205 are secured to straps 20A and 208, respectively, by means of glue or by stitching. Straps 20A and 20B overlap and their overlapping strips of adhesive material, 204 and 205 respectively adhere to one another when pressed together and thus control the distance between a player's thumb and index finger.

In FIGS. 5-7 there is shown a third version of my glove. Thumb portion 14 is shown with outwardly extending strap 301, which is secured to thumb portion 14 by stitching, having inside face 302 and outside face 303. Adjacent the end of strap 301 opposite thumb portion 14 on inside face 302 is strip 304 of pressure sensitive material. Intermediate the ends of strap 30] on outside face 303 is strip 305 of pressure sensitive material. Strips 304 and 305 are secured to faces 302 and 303, respectively, of strap 301 by means of glue or by stitching. In this version of my glove strap 301 extends at an angle from thumb portion 14. Specifically the longitudinal centerline XX of strap 301 makes an acute angle with a line YY extending transversely of the longitudinal centerline of thumb portion 14. Preferably this angle is approximately l5-25. In this version of my glove the player's thumb and index finger are spaced apart the desired distance and the outer end of strap 301 drawn over and around index finger first phalanx 151. Pressure sensitive material strip 304 adjacent the strap end is then passed firmly against pressure sensitive material strip 305 to lock them together and prevent the thumb and index finger from being separated more than the desired distance.

It is to be appreciated that the glove of this invention may be manufactured of various materials. During practice sessions a single glove may be worn on a players normal shooting or dribbling hand, or two gloves may be worn, one on each hand. The purpose of the glove is to remind a player or condition him to form his hand or hands into a cup-like shape when shooting, dribbling or otherwise handling the ball. After use of the glove of this invention in practice sessions over an extended period a player will be conditioned to auto matically form his hand into the desired cup-like shape for shooting when, during regulation games, no glove is worn.
