can a fielder ware a batting glove on his throwing hand

David asked: A defensive player is wearing a batting glove on his throwing hand.
Rick answered: David, thank you for your question.
I am unable to locate a reference, in either the MLB Rules of the Federation Rules in regards to a fielder wearing a batting glove on their throwing hand.
A pitcher would not be able to wear one, as it would be perceived to create some advantage, grip wise.
As far as the other 8 fielders, there is no mention of it being illegal, nor legal.
What level of baseball was it that you saw this happen? Was the weather exceptionally cold?
Be interested in learning some more about the situation it occurred in.
Yours in baseball,
