The . rules committee • acted because he was "platooning" the covering on his left hand. D a 1 r y m p 1 e was happy enough to have the large economy size mitt for catching pitches but, for plays at the plate involving throws from the outfield, a finger glove proved vastly superior. I've read several versions of Clay's method of shifting gloves. One had him carrying a finger glove in a back pocket and the other m e n I i o n e c swapping gloves quickly with the pitcher.
