A minimum of baseball equipment was employed in 19th century baseball, and changes in its regulation were not so common. No baseball player wore a helmet during the 1800's and baseball gloves did not become common until the late 1880s. In fact, defensive players on both teams actually shared baseball gloves from inning to inning in the early years. The baseball itself has retained the same dimensions, weight and leather pattern since 1872. Only one attempt to regulate uniforms was made by the National League of Professional Base Ball Clubs in 1882. This was due to the emergence of the American Association of Base Ball Clubs, which began play that same year and attempted to differentiate themselves from the six-year old National League.
