Description
    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

    My invention pertains to Baseball fans which when attending games currently have the option to bring and wear a regular baseball glove for protection and the chance to catch a home run or foul ball depending on where they are sitting.

  • [0002]
    Information currently available to me are all the current baseball gloves which are large and bulky and other padded gloves which are not designed specifically for the baseball fan which would protect their hands when reaching for a home run or foul ball and at the same time allow them to easily enjoy the food and beverages.
