If you want to be an elite defender, you need to have elite practice and training rituals.  The best players in the game don’t just show up and make it look easy. Thousands upon thousands of ground balls or fly balls have allowed them to hone their skills, so that the glove becomes an extension of their body and fielding becomes an art form.

There are all kinds of devices on the market, with some better than others. But the most common tool used among professionals to get to this level is a training glove.  Our 10-inch Emery TruTrainer gives the most authentic feel to your game glove in the industry.

Hopefully, the first thing you asked yourself is, how is this possible?  Short answer – through constant pattern development, testing, and feedback from our professional players.

Long answer – here’s what went into it.

  • The same pro-grade internals used in our Diamond and Emerald Series gloves. This means Kip hand liner, cabretta padded thumb and pinky loops, high grade felt and added palm pad protection, structure and shape.  Often up-charges from other companies; standard issue in every Emery TruTrainer.
  • 10-inch glove with identical pocket depth as Diamond and Emerald Series. Often times, the commonly used 9.5-inch leaves balls not sticking in the pocket, especially when doing 1-hand drills.  Elite transfers are made from the pocket, not hoping to find the ball while it is rolling up your fingers.
  • Pro-grade “natural” Tennessee Tanning Co. laces. We use the same laces on our trainers that our All-Star outfielder Nick Castellanos uses on his gamer.  Play catch and field at high speeds knowing the laces will hold and protect comfortably without giving slack or breaking down quickly.
  • Identical heel lace and pad to our 1417 infield model. You’ll notice the ability to shape this trainer like your game glove, thumb and pinky breaks in particular.

Whether you wear your glove straight up, or off-set (two in pinky stall), this will be the TRUest, most realistic, most comfortable trainer you’ve ever worn.

There are two ways for you to purchase your TruTrainer and get the feel of our amazing training glove. You can order one of our IN STOCK trainers at https://emerygloveco.com/product-category/tru-trainer/ or you can customize your own on the builder at www.emerygloveco.com — remember to select 10 inch (trainer) for your glove size.
