Franklin Sporting Goods has long been one of the top batting glove manufacturers in the game. Franklin batting gloves were originally designed in 1983 with the help of Hall of Fame slugger Mike Schmidt. The design that Franklin and Schmidt crafted was simple yet effective, and has remained relatively unchanged for over 30 years.
Fast forward to today and the Franklin Pro Classic Batting Glove is still one of the most popular batting gloves in the game. Along with the help of Franklin Sporting Goods, Baseball Monkey has taken this Pro Classic glove and created an exclusive design. The BaseballMonkey Exclusive Pro Classics are available in youth and adult models as well as several different color options.
While so many changes have been made in baseball since 1983, Franklin batting gloves have stood the test of time and remained the industry leader in batting gloves.
Franklin Exclusive Pro Classic Batting Gloves
There are several factors that help Franklin batting gloves remain relevant and stand out from the competition. The materials, technology, and simple design all play major roles in the development of one of the most popular batting gloves of all-time.
Our exclusive Franklin Pro Classic batting gloves feature breathable pro spandex across much of the area on the back of the player’s hand to give a cool and comfortable feel at the plate.
The gold standard for the leather used in batting gloves has long been Pittards Leather. Naturally, the top batting glove company features Pittard digitally-etched sheepskin on the palm and fingers to ensure durability, comfort, and performance.
The Franklin Exclusive Pro Classic Batting Gloves features a simple design that stemmed from Franklin wondering how to get their brand on the field at the Major League level. Mike Schmidt suggested they place their name on the back of the glove and the rest is history.
Franklin’s dominance in the batting glove market appears to have no end in sight. Their dedication to enhancing performance and giving ballplayers a comfortable feel at the plate is second to none.
