Buying Tips

Your catcherís glove is a fingerless mitt with plush padding to reduce the sting of a pitcher's throw. A stiff construction and thick leather minimize hand pain, catch after catch. A claw-like shape helps players easily close the mitt.

Softball catcherís gloves are sewn with a slightly different construction, including a deeper pocket and thinner side walls, a design that accommodates a larger ball.

Keep in mind: Catcherís mitts are measured differently than other baseball gloves: Theyíre measured around the circumference area of the glove to determine the catching area of the glove. Baseball sizes range from 30.5 to 34.5, typically.

Expert Advice

Every player knows itís the details that matter. Your glove should deliver a snug fitódo not choose a catcherís mitt thatís too large for your hand, as that could hinder performance. Think about materials when selecting your catcherís mitt:

Leather is the material of choice for most baseball gloves, providing comfort, control and feel. The better quality the leather, the better the glove will perform.

Treated Leather is softened with chemicals for a quicker break-in period and increased durability. Keep in mind, catcherís mitts tend to take longer to break-in, as they are built for a stiffer fit. Treated leather also reduces the care needed for the glove, and helps the glove keep its shape.
