Trevor Plouffe, 3B
Plouffe keeps it simple: he likes to play catch with a new glove in the warm weather at spring training to break in the leather.
Torii Hunter, OF
A nine-time Gold Glove award-winner, Hunter treats new leather like you treat leftovers: 90 seconds in the microwave.
Kurt Suzuki, C
The veteran catcher likes a soft catcher’s mitt, so he can get a good feel of the ball coming into the glove.
Ervin Santana, P
One red, one blue. Watch the video to hear how Santana decides which color glove to pick for a start.
Chris Herrmann, C
He’s listed as catcher, but Herrmann plays many positions and he turned to Torii Hunter for some advice.
Brain Dozier, 2B
The All-Star second baseman has been using the same type of glove since high school.
Aaron Hicks, OF
The young outfielder makes a midseason switch each year, breaking in a new “gamer” glove.
