Tips & Expert Advice
A catcher's mitt is specially designed to help players of the position handle recurrent high-velocity pitches with comfort and ease. To make one of the most grueling positions in the game more comfortable, purchase a catcher's mitt made out of premium steer hide leather with thick cushioning to soften the impact from powerful pitches.
In order to properly break-in your catcher's mitt and ensure its maximum potential from season to season, it is important to purchase a professional-grade glove care kit, complete with a wooden mallet, durable rubber bands and oils that help treat and condition your glove's leather. When your premium leather glove is properly broken in, you will be able to catch and field your position better with increased dexterity.
