Worcester-Based Insignia Athletics One of Few Remaining American Baseball Glove Makers (Video)

The baseball glove is the piece of equipment that most defines America’s pastime, but surprisingly few gloves and mitts used today are actually manufactured in the United States.

In fact, only two companies currently produce baseball gloves in the U.S.: Texas-based Nokona and Insignia Athletics, which operates out of Worcester, Mass. Insignia owner Jim Devaney took NESN’s Jamison Coyle on a tour of the factory, showing how much care is put into each step of the glove-making process.

Check it out in the video above or on NESN’s YouTube channel.
