If you're shopping for a new Rawlings' catcher's mitt for baseball, you'll find it's built with a 1-Piece Closed web
The closed web makes the glove stronger and more durable and is designed to help the catcher block the ball and make a quick transfer to his throwing hand.
The catcher's mitts at RawlingsGear.com get top reviews for their utility.
Garza713289 wrote an online review of his Heart of the Hide 34 inch catcher's mitt (model number PROSCM41B
): "This mitt is good for picking balls in the dirt and makes it easy to receive pitches. The break-in process is a little lengthy, but i like how the inside of the glove molds to the shape of your hand."
Other catchers have noted the quick break-in time on their mitts.
Hillcow of Bowling Green, Ky., wrote a review of his Gold Glove Legend 34 inch catcher’s mitt (model number GGCM41L
): "I've been waiting for Rawlings to make a 34" Gold Glove catcher's mitt for a long time. The leather is soft but looks and feels like high quality. I was able to close it easily right out of the box."
Left-handed catchers have raved about their mitts too.
NickMo wrote a review of his Gold Glove 32.5 inch catcher's left handed mitt (model number GGCMB-RH
): "I purchased this glove a couple years ago and I absolutely loved it from the start. It is a good weight for a catcher and is great for throwing runners out, as you can get the ball out of this glove very fast.”
