Helps a lot March 3 2013
By C. Lenard - Published on Amazon.com
When I was a kid, we didn't have products like these that we could buy at the local sporting goods stores. We had to make them. My dad saw SF Giants Matt Williams warming up with something similar back in the early 90's and decided to make one, which he did with an old ping pong paddle and some shoe strings. It worked wonders with my fielding mechanics, which is why I was quick to purchase this product.

I started coaching a 9U baseball team about a month ago and there's a lot of kids who have never played baseball before, or never had coaches who worked with the kids. We're not those coaches, so we break down into groups, and one of those is for fielding practice. I purchased some sofhands trainers and some reaction balls and have used them (*separately for now) quite a bit so far. I have noticed some major improvements and the kids have fun.

I recommend watching the training videos on YouTube to get an idea on how they need to be used. Obviously you want to just roll the ball for a while until they get used to it, as well as make sure that they're fielding correctly, which is what this product helps with.

Overall, I highly recommend this product for anyone...ANYONE who plays baseball or softball. It will definitely improve your game. Also, try it out with the reaction ball once you get used to it.

Baseball Player Magazine recommends a flat glove like this one for training young players ... Aug. 9 2013
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I wasn't sure I'd like this much upon first sight, but once I tried it out a few times I decided it had promise. The "foam" is not soft, but rather fairly stiff. It measures 8 3/4" x 9 1/2" at its widest points and 1/2" deep, giving the player ample protection to his or her hands.

According to Baseball Player Magazine, "Each and every play is different, but the decision to use one or two hands inevitably comes down to being in the most athletic position. The use of two hands is best suited for taking a routine groundball. During the routine type play, a good infielder will actually deflect the ball to their throwing hand thus creating a quick transfer. The glove doesn't even have to close, and the glove is positioned so the fielder can catch the ball off the palm or flattest part of the glove. Completely flat training gloves with no fingers or pocket are a great training tool to learn how to deflect."

This is a "completely flat" training glove that will get the young player used to using two hands, especially when fielding grounders. Perfect for young players!

FEATURES:

~ Reinforces the use of two hands and the player getting his body in front of the ball
~ Great practice for turning two on the field
~ Fits either hand
~ Appropriate for all levels of baseball

~ For baseball or softball

~ Soft foam construction

~ Comfortable elasticized straps

Perfect For Teaching Little Ones! Aug. 8 2013
By Penguin Chick - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
If you are trying to train a little catcher then you can't do without this product. The trainer is designed for a two hand catch so that you can easily transition to a glove with a child. I found that this trainer allows for more success for the child to build confidence which made catching with a real glove so much easier!

learn to catch a ball easier. Great fielding baseball trainer. July 28 2013
By Enchanted In Dixie - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This little piece of foam works great for anyone who needs to learn to catch. It is cheaper than other training gloves; and works well to get you to use both your hands when catching the ball. Perfect teaching your child to play catch or for the younger ones who have just started on a team.
A step above rigid fielding trainers Aug. 15 2013
By P. Kingsriter - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I've got a young-un interested in baseball. We've done some city-sponsored summer baseball camps that use various fielding trainers. For little ones (under age 8, especially) I think this stiff-foam-rubber version of a fielding trainer is superior to rigid plastic ones.

You may be asking, why use a fielding trainer at all? Why not just use a glove? These flat fielding trainers make it impossible to field grounders by simply scooping up the ball with one's glove. The fielder must get into a good fielding position and use both hands to retrieve a grounder. This helps train muscle memory to improve one's posture and field grounders effectively.

This trainer isn't stout enough to field hard grounders hit with a bat - it may sting little hands. You'd want to just toss grounders to your little ball player. It's got elastic finger holes and straps that will fit most hands (my little guy and I can both make it work) with a comfortable fit. The foam rubber surface is tough enough for several hundred grounders, I'm sure. I find it better than the rigid plastic variety simply because it mimics a glove's "feel" better with the added benefit of providing a little "give" taking some "mustard" off the ball.

If you've got a little one interested in baseball (or softball) and want to lock in proper grounder fielding technique, this fielding trainer will certainly help and not break the bank.
