Softball Catchers Mitts

Softball Catchers Mitts

The choice to become a catcher is one that you should not take lightly. It should be approached with commitment that the position demands. It is important that players equip themselves with the best equipment to provide consistent, confident play behind the plate. How can you choose among all of the available softball catchers mitts? You should start by choosing one whose design is for the specific game of choice. The depth and flexibility of the different models use designs that better suit one game over another. [product_tag tags="softball-catchers-mitts"]

Differences

Unlike traditional baseball catcher’s mitts, softball catchers mitts usually come with a more open, flexible webbing. This allows it to handle the larger softball size. What makes a mitt  for softball is its ability to  surround and secure the larger size of the softball. It does this without sacrificing mobility while catching the ball.  The H Web pattern that you usually find on infield or outfield models is better at securing larger softballs. It also provides the flexibility players need in order to halt hard hit balls in their tracks.

Features

The majority of modern softball catchers mitts these days come with creative closure systems. These help players hold the ball easier. It also allows for quick glove to hand transfers. When searching for a new mitt, you should consider the natural dangers of the position. Be sure to look for models that have additional padding around the palm and forefinger.  These are the areas that take the majority of the abuse. There is a fine line between having too much or not enough padding. It depends upon player’s individual  preferences behind the dish. Slightly more padding can add  weight to the glove. However, thinner padding leaves fragile bones exposed to the mercy of fast moving throws.

Quality

Players that look for the advantage should look for catchers mitts that feature a specially hinged heel or large pocket.  The majority of big name manufacturers utilize advanced technology to make catching softballs easier and more comfortable than ever before. The quality of the leather is important to not only the performance but the durability of the mitt. This is a something that should be at the top of any player or parent’s priority list.
