Catchers are unique for many reasons, not the least of which is the mitt they use.
Here are some tips for selecting your Rawlings catcher's mitt:
• Grab a Rawlings mitt
that is snug and secure without being too tight.
• Choose a mitt that allows you to catch and stop wild pitches but that's not so big you are unable to grab the ball.
• Your catcher’s mitt
should have enough padding to make your hand feel secure, while still having the control to snap the glove closed and hold the ball tight.
• Make sure you have a firm grip for grabbing fouls and tagging runners at the plate.
Nearly all the Rawlings catcher's mitts at RawlingsGear.com have received top reviews from customers. 1CATCHER is one such consumer. He wrote about his Pro Preferred 32.5 inch 2-Tone mitt,
(model number PROSCM202T): "I've had other mitts, but this one tops them all. The leather is sturdy yet easy to break in, and once it is broken in, it is like an extension of your arm. With others, my hand used to get really sore; with this mitt on I can go through a whole game without any pain at all. Have put this glove through a lot, but still has plenty of life in it."
