Franklin is the 600 pound gorilla in the space of batting gloves. They dominate the space at every level. It is no wonder they are the “official batting glove of Major League Baseball.”
Like Wilson with the custom gloves and DeMarini with the custom bats, Franklin lets you customize batting gloves. This is a beautiful thing. You can customize either Franklin’s Pro Classic or the CFX Pro batting glove—both of which are recommendable gloves and worn in some fashion or another by several pro athletes.

There are only two inhibitors which would keep someone from pulling the trigger on these beauties: price and delivery time. At $55 plus taxes and shipping, this is, at least at JBR HQ, not something we would do very often if at all. A birthday or holiday present might do the trick. And with a 4 to 6 week production time this may not fit the bill for the folks who need something sooner rather than later.
But despite any drawback on price or timing, these gloves are fantastic in just about every way you could imagine. The customized features are endless and the website makes it easy.
The process for designing your own batting glove is pretty straight forward. Better seen in pictures:
Why We Would
If waiting for up to 6 weeks or dropping almost $60 on a pair of batting gloves doesn’t fit your style then the good news is Franklin mass produces batting gloves in a litany of color options at a more mass produced price and delivery time. See here for example. You may find one in there that fits your liking at a fraction of the cost and delivered in two days.
While we wouldn’t expect everyone in the world to jump for a custom made batting glove, we suggest that those who have a few bucks to spend and can wait 4 to 6 weeks should at a minimum check out the site and play around with options. Beware, it is slightly addicting and you might walk away $60 poorer. But the gloves are as good as you could ever hope for.
