RECOMMENDED POSITION: INFIELD & PITCHER
The Roll can be used in all positions as well, but for smaller gloves up to 11 3/4". Just like the rest it has its strengths over other forms. It is like choosing your flavor of ice cream. Some players like a tight/closed feel to their glove. The pocket created in our Roll Form has a deeper more closed feeling.
This is a popular form amongst pitchers and infielders. The pinky side being rolled in has an advantage when ranging to the glove side and preventing the ball from bouncing/kicking off the glove. The rolled thumb keeps a nice tight form on the glove that most pitchers going with fastball-slider-curveball combination prefer.
