Glove Guardian catches on with Brantly

JUPITER, Fla. — John Buck may no longer be the Marlins’ catcher, but his influence remains.

Special case was designed and created by former Marlin John Buck.

Marlins catcher Rob Brantly stores his gloves in a specialized cylinder designed and created by Buck, who is now with the Mariners.

The case is called the Glove Guardian, which sells online for $64 on toigear.com.

Brantly packs two gloves into the durable case that is light weight, and keeps his gloves in good condition.

Buck came up with the idea for a special catcher’s case in Spring Training in 2010.

If a catcher doesn’t have the case, Brantly said: “They should.”
