This Pro Preferred 11 1/2" model features a conventional back and the Modified Trap-Eze Web pattern, which is an extremely strong web that provides ball snagging functionality. This popular model is primarily used at the shortstop/pitcher position at the Pro Level. It can also be used at 2nd and 3rd base positions at the college/high school level. The Pro Preferred Series is made with soft, durable Kipskin Leather for easy break-in, laces pretested to 100lb tensile strength and deerskin lining that provides comfort, fit, and durability. This is the same pattern worn by J.J. Hardy.
