Bat Old

Did old-time baseball players leave their gloves on the field when they came in to bat?

Did old-time baseball players leave their gloves on the field when they came in to bat?
Infielders, too?
When did the practice stop?

Yes, they did - OF and INF. Can only speculate that gloves were left on the field because they were:
1. Not as specialized or valuable as today
2. Getting misplaced in dugouts
3. Shared with opposing players - questionable

Did find a reference in Y/A about 3 years ago, that Jimmy Piersall twisted his ankle in '54 from stepping on a glove and the practice ended shortly afterwards.

Maybe following WWII, there was a shortage of materials which made the gloves expensive. This combined with much lower salaries, it might be possible that some MLB players couldn't afford their own glove. The team may have supplied only uniforms and caps and players bought their own shoes and gloves.

Hard to believe since there are "stories" that some old time players slept with their gloves (and bats).
