I broke my pinky finger on glove hand and pitch. Need something I can wear in my glove for padding. Ideas????

When I broke a finger I got some foam pipe insulation and cut a small piece to fit. Worked awesome for batting.

I don't know what finger you broke, nor the severity. But,you can tape your broken finger to the one next to it. I suggest a finger splint because if you hit that thing it is going to hurt.

I would have to agree with Wayne, use a plastc finger splint. Slide it on and use surgical tape around it in a couple of places. This will prevent the finger from bending and you can get it in your glove easy enough. Ive also broken the pinky finger on my glove hand and was able to play with the splint.

A splint makes it hard to grip the bat. Plus it offers no padding.

I agree with Dbax. I have used foam pipe insulation before and it works well due to the cushioning and flexibility.
