NCAA pitchers glove

OK, I am editing this post so as not to confuse people what I am asking. In NCAA softball, is it ever legal for the pitcher to have optic yellow color on their glove? ESQUmp's response came from my original question, so please comment without reading that comment.

A manufacturer's label is not considered a color. That is true. So if the glove says "Wilson" or "Mizuno" in optic yellow, that is legal.

The issue with the size of the logo addresses the restriction of teams/players being turned into advertisements for a company. In other words, the jersey can't have RIDDELL written across from shoulder to shoulder.

Yes; his response is correct. The NCAA is clear in stating that the manufacturer's logo is NOT considered a glove color; so all the gloves considered questionable in other sanctions are legal.

The words "Mizuno", "Wilson", and the small logo patches on those gloves can be (and are) optic yellow, and those gloves can be used by pitchers. In all aspects, those are black gloves with manufacturers' logos, not multicolored gloves.
