This Heart of the Hide Dual Core Catcher's Mitt features a conventional back and the One Piece Closed Web, which creates maximum strength and durability. With its 32 1/2 inch pattern, this glove forms a good pocket, which makes it easier to control the ball and scoop up pitches in the dirt. This new Heart of the Hide leather is tanned softer for that game ready feel with the durability and consistency remaining the same. The softness of the new leather allows for less break in time. This Series of gloves now features Dual Core Technology, which is position specific break points in the glove pattern.
