Rawlings constructs the shell of their Heart of the Hide mitts with top-grade U.S. Steerhide and this material will be able to handle the rigors of a grueling high school, college or summer season. And to match the shell's quality, the mitt's hand slot is made from a deer-tanned cowhide that will be extra comfortable on a player's hand!
Defend the backstop with confidence when you slip on this 32 1/2" circumference catcher's mitt. It will be large enough to set a big target to which the entire pitching staff can aim. In addition, it should do wonders when a catcher has to block or swipe pitches thrown in the dirt.
Lastly, this is an R2G (Ready 2 Go) model that should only require 35% of the break-in to be done by the player after they receive it. As long as you give the mitt some attention, it should be ready to take into a game pretty quickly!
