UVM Professor David Jenemann Recounts The Baseball Glove's Evolution
Though there are a number of sports in which gloves play a prominent role, the glove is most readily associated with baseball — a game in which every player on the field wears one.
University of Vermont professor David Jenemann has written quite a bit about this in his latest book, called The Baseball Glove: History, Material, Meaning, and Value.
Jenemann spoke to VPR about the evolution of the baseball glove and how it impacted the game. He even brought in some of his favorite gloves, including one from the 1940s, to the studio.
Listen to Jenemann's conversation with Mitch Wertlieb above.
Jenemann teaches courses in film and television theory, as well as serves as co-director of the UVM Humanities Center — and, in his free time, he plays second baseman for the Burlington Cardinals.
