The gloves I received were exactly what I was hoping they'd be. Color was good, have good grip with the bat in hand, but I am really disappointed in the quality of the stitching. Just before my second at bat on the first time using the glove, the right glove (I'm right handed so don't use this glove in the field) stiching had started to come loose on the curve of my thumb to my index finger. Since then, I've played 3 more games and now other parts of the stitching is coming loose, as well as worsening from the first stitch problem, on the same hand. I will note that the other hand (left) hasn't had this problem as bad. It might be I recieved a bad glove. Overall, I would be really satified if not for this problem.
