I carried my backup glove for a full three years before I finally settled in and made the switch.  Hard to let the old glove go.

Funny thing - I learned that some infielders in baseball skip putting their finger in the pointer slot, then put ring&pinky in the pinky slot.   I tried it for a week, and that's all it took for me to change entirely.  It "extends" the glove AND makes it absolutely pain free when catching the rockets I get in my league.

Yeah it took me awhile to switch to my second glove. I'm gonna try switching fingers and see how that feels. I play outfield so there's not a ton of screaming shots that hurt my hand but what I like about my new glove is that it's a little bigger then my second. I never knew until I ordered on line that you could order a 14 inch glove and that they could be different sizes.

my friend plays in Boston and he said one of his fields is screwed because they used it as a snow dumping ground and you can barely see the top of the backstop!

Where does he play.

I play outfield to - mostly L or LC.......The fence behind me is only 280 and there are guys who hit it 400, so the liners I get are ridiculous. Switching the fingers has made it painless.   I use a 13" glove.

Not sure what field or league but he play's first and is a big power hitter...he's like 6'4 and 270lb....nickname is Chicken

two of our fields are 290 with 20 ft fences and we use league supplied bats with only 3 hrs per team and the balls still fly out.
one field is 300 with 20 foot fence and my happiest moment was putting it over that in dead center.

Our fields go from 280 in left to 310 in RC, 300 in R.  The fences are about 40ft high with an HR stripe about 25 ft up,  (golf range nets on top of 10 ft fence) and balls go over them, so I see them land in the 350+ range.  The RC and RF don't have the nets, only 10 ft fences.

I'm lefty and bat either 1-2 so my job is to get on base and run.  Two years ago I hit about 5-6 out, but last year I didn't hit any.  Same 3 hr limit.

I have to figure out how to make it work.  Other league is not something I can do part time.  But, I can't stop either.

You will be fine, my friend.  Maybe on one of my Toronto business trips I can guest pinch hit.   Grin
