Index glove finger?

Just a quick question, does anybody know, why do most players stick their index finger out of the glove in their glove hand? Is it just fashion or is there a reason for it?

I felt the same way, it sort of stretches your finger...
But after a while you get used to it, but I don't see how it's any comfier/better than leaving your finger in...

I started doing it when line drives hit the palm of my glove and stung my hand. After taking my index finger out of my glove my hand gets stung less.

They stick that finger out of the glove because then there is less presure on that finger.. when your playing a high level of baseball you catch the ball right on that finger it can hurt allot.. that's why they put that finger out because theres just another peace of leather in front of there finger
