Yankees Pitcher Makes History With a Nonleather Glove

New York Yankees pitcher Brian Gordon recently became the first player in Major League Baseball history to use a nonleather glove. If you ask me, that's much more newsworthy than Derek Jeter's 3,000th career hit quest or future Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera's pursuit of the most saves in the majors.

Gordon’s non-leather glove—handcrafted by Carpenter Trade Company out of microfiber that is breathable, memory retentive, and wicks away moisture—is 10 ounces lighter than a standard leather glove. Gordon raves that his glove, which is already broken in and doesn't require oiling or heating, as leather gloves do, feels "locked in." Source: PETA
