Catcher's Mitt With Position-Specific Design

Every position on the diamond is important, but as the catcher, you're the last line of defense that could mean the difference between a game-saving out at home or the go-ahead run for the other team. As such, a catcher's mitt is designed differently than other baseball gloves, with no individual fingers and a look more similar to a mitten. Catcher's gloves are also large, typically 30 - 35 inches in size, creating a better target for the pitcher and making it easier for you to catch fastballs, curveballs and sliders. Be sure you're prepared for every practice and game with our assortment of catcher's gear, and outfit your whole team with the various baseball gloves and mitts we have to offer.

Padding And Materials

One of the crucial components to a baseball catcher glove is the amount of padding involved in the construction. Many different options for padding are available, including padded palms and thumb sleeves, which will aid in protecting your hand from repeated impacts inning after inning. Most catcher's mitt models are made from leather or some kind of durable synthetic materials. This element is essential, as catcher's gloves bear the brunt of the impact for the countless pitches snagged throughout a season.
