The 2021 R9 series 32.5-inch catcher's mitt was crafted with young, up-and-coming backstoppers in mind. Its 1-piece solid web and quality leather construction make it easy to break in. In addition, the gold binding and stitching provide the perfect accent to help "paint the corner" for your pitcher. As a result, you'll be able to frame more pitches as strikes, and help keep your team in control of the game every inning out. The perks don't stop there either. All our R9 series gloves are made with a padded thumb sleeve and finger-back liners to give you more support and protection. They're also created with a reinforced palm pad so you don't have to worry about stingers on even the fastest pitches. Don't miss another wild pitch, get your R9 series catcher's mitt today, and rise to greatness this season!
