Description



CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

[0001] The present application claims the benefit of Chinese Patent Application No. 201610482049.4 filed on Jun. 27, 2016, the contents of which are hereby incorporated by reference.

TECHNICAL FIELD

[0002] The Invention relates to the field of ball sport commodities, particularly to a non-sewing softball/baseball glove.

BACKGROUND ART

[0003] The invention (patent No. 200920053805.7) published on Jun. 2, 2010 disclosed a baseball glove, comprising a lining, a shell and a web, wherein, the lining is set in the shell, and the web and shell are connected by means of sewing; the lining is composed of an inner palm integrally formed and several inner finger slices sewed together with the inner palm; the inner palm has an inner palm area and five inner finger areas where inner palm extends outwardly; the shell has an outer full palm and an outer full opisthenar, wherein the outer full palm has an outer palm area and five outer finger areas extending outwardly from the outer palm area. The outer full opisthenar has an outer opisthenar area and five finger back areas extending outwardly from the outer opisthenar area. The outer full palm and outer full opisthenar are sewed together. In the invention, the inner full palm and the outer full opisthenar are respectively formed integrally, thus saving manpower and costs. Meanwhile, the integrally formed material can reduce the weight of the glove and manufacture a satisfied baseball glove.

[0004] However, the three parts of the baseball glove (lining, shell and web) need to be formed by mechanically sewing multiple of small pieces and manually running rope, so there are some defects: 1. very complex process, just reducing about 20% of workload during sewing; 2. very rough process, failing to realize anti-slip and sweating prevention, resulting in uneasy wear and uncomfort. Therefore, it is not a practical invention.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0005] In order to overcome the defects of the prior art, the Invention is to provide a softball/baseball glove made with non-sewing process and is characterized by simple process, reduced workload and anti-slip and sweating prevention functions.
