The keys are:

- Binding & Lace.
- Tensile Strength Thread.
- NYStix Service.
The glove leather is an important part of any baseball glove. But how the the gloves’ fingers are kept together makes a difference when fielding hard hit baseballs.
The strips of material that seem to glue the fingers together and holds the front and the back parts together. This material is called glove “welt” or “piping”.
NYStix uses rolled leather, same leather used for glove shell, to keep the fingers stiff and ready to field those liners. Retail and some other brands may use a weaker material like plastics, cork or vinyl.
A baseball gloves’ “binding” keeps the pocket, back and front shells together. The quality of this leather is crucial in holding the gloves structure when making normal catches, diving catches and tag outs.
Pro rawhide lacing is the most important, because it keeps the ball from going through the glove web. Pro lacing will keep the glove together and supports the wear and tear of 1000’s of catches.
Tensile Strength Thread
I bet you never gave a lot of thought to stitching/thread that is sewn into web, and around the glove. It matter’s a lot.
NYStix baseball gloves uses thread used on special use uniforms and protective gear to join the pieces of the web and reinforces the welting that keeps the fingers together.
