i think this is very good idea, me and my mates often always wear some very thin and tight underArmour batting gloves for hooping. in my opinion it really works, and they protect your hands well. most important that they are very thin and tactile like a second skin, like isaac said. as for grip, smooth leather is best, not too grippy, just right and similar to naked grip.
in the future, they could be based on a thin batting glove model - modified golf gloves would also work.
i suggest that those who are sceptical try UA batting gloves for the next game (the "cleanup" model ist best) - you will love them.
