Catchers are often the backbone of a baseball team. The catcher is the one giving the pitcher the signs and catching nearly every pitch. Catchers are depended on to crouch down for hours, block wild pitches and tag out the opposition at home plate. And through it all, high-speed baseballs are being thrown right at them. We know that you need high-quality catcher's gear, like leg guards and knee pads, to protect you from injuries. That's why we offer protective baseball catcher's gear in adult sizes and youth catcher's gear to protect both you and your little all-star. Many of the leg guards in our selection feature advanced protective technologies to pad your body and absorb impacts from wayward or missed pitches. Knee pads attach to the back of your legs and are designed to relieve stress and pressure on the knees while in the crouched position.
Like the leg protectors, chest protectors are crucial for catchers. We carry chest protectors in a wide range of sizes, perfect for children, juniors and adults. Many feature foam padding with protective technology to help keep your chest, ribs and internal organs safe from harm during a game. Most are worn with back harnesses to ensure a snug and comfortable fit. Some include shoulder pads for additional bodily protection.
In addition to the leg guards and chest pads, there are a few other catcher's gear items that every catcher needs in his or her sports bag. Be sure to pick out a catcher's mask for safety and a catcher's mitt as well, so you're ready for every practice or game.
