Our Custom baseball glove is a high quality product and as a boutique sports equipment company, we need as close to 100% satisfaction from our customers. We do this by not taking shortcuts in glove production and buying the best baseball glove leathers from Japan’s well respected tanneries, whose tanning processes are considered best in the world.

      3. Once you are finished with a section, select the next section by clicking the panel, represented in light grey or light blue.
      4. Once you made selections to all options in the submenu, select the next major section and repeat the same navigational and design options.

What Our Customers Say..

I really love the quality of the wood that's used to make NYStix. I've had a few bats that lasted me longer than some of the top name brands that are used by actual professional. I have no complaints ask the baseballs I've used them on, lol.

NYStix wood bats are awesome. I've had them for a long time and they feel really, really great. As a coach and a player good equipment is needed for winning results.
