Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Arthur) Irwin is best known for popularizing the fielder's glove. Not wanting to miss any games after he broke two fingers on his left hand in a game, Irwin improvised and made a glove from a large driving glove, adding padding, a button at the back, and sewed the 3rd and 4th fingers together. The glove was soon adopted by other players and became known as the 'Irwin Glove'. -Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame
