Multicolored Baseball Gloves History
Manny Trillo is said to be first baseball player to use a multicolored glove in the late seventies. He colored the back of his tan Wilson first base mitt navy.
Tony Gwynn did the same thing in the eighties with his outfield glove. Nowadays the manufacturers make any color combination you want. From the Rawlings color sync gloves to the Wilson A2000 game day models with players team colors.
Dyeing the gloves changed the feel and suppleness of the leather, preventing glove companies to want to alter the color of the gloves.
