I'm not a guy who respects a grown man with a glove at a game. But I don't think a foam finger on the wrong hand counts as a glove. There is no way the foam finger padded the impact at all.
I actually think wearing the foam finger adds a little more difficulty to the whole thing. It's probably the best play by a guy with a Reds shirt on this season.
