"There's probably no object in American sports that has as much ritual associated with it" as the baseball glove, says UVM's Dave Jenemann.
The professor and lifelong fan of the game explores the cultural life of the mitt, and shares findings from his new book, The Baseball Glove: History, Material, Meaning, and Value.
Professor Jenemann teaches courses in film and television theory, critical theory, genre, and global cinema. He serves as co-director of the Vermont Humanities Center, and, in his free time, plays second baseman for the Burlington Cardinals.
