Evoshield made a new batting glove that lets you insert one of their custom-molding “shields” to protect the back of your lead, or bottom hand while batting.
And these new Evoshield batting gloves launched for the 2012 baseball season are so hot, they were almost sold out before the season even started!
At a price of $59.99 they’re probably the most expensive batting gloves on the market (most high end batting gloves cost around $40), but players clearly want them as badly as they religiously use Evoshield’s other protective gear.
Evoshield released their “Pro Style” batting gloves in sizes S-XXL and in three colors (black, gray, and white). But they’ve sold so well, here’s all that’s available at last check.

Key Features of Evoshield Batting Gloves
With a Pittards leather palm and a thick wrist band, the Evoshield feels like a high-quality batting glove. But it’s no secret that the roughly $20 extra you’re paying is for the insertable protective shield.
Evoshield representatives confirmed to me that each pair of batting gloves comes with only one shield, because it’s meant to be used for your lead hand. The custom-molding protective shield comes in a foil pouch. You just open it, take the shield and insert it into your batting glove, and wear the glove until the shield hardens.
Here’s a diagram we made pointing out key features of the Evoshield protective batting glove.
