Louisville Slugger Genesis 1884 Series: GENYCM Youth Catcher's Mitt
Average Customer Review
Very good mitt for a beginning catcher. My son is not quite 8, but is beginning to learn to catch on his travel team. This mitt is perfect for him. The buffalo hide is soft enough that he was able to use the mitt the first day we received it, and has continued to break in nicely. It seems tough enough, though, that I'm certain it will hold up until long after he's outgrown it. It has plenty of padding to give him the confidence to hang in there, and the slightly deeper pocket enables him to keep the ball from bouncing out of his mitt, which frequently happens when kids begin using catcher's mitts. The mesh back lightens the glove up just enough so that he can manipulate it confidently, but the glove still has enough mass to make it feel solid when the ball hits it. Overall, very well designed and thought out beginners catchers mitt and at the price, an extremely good value! Can't imagine a better choice for a beginner's catchers mitt.

Based on his age, I would recommend a smaller model, around 30.00". The Louisville Slugger Genesis 1884 Series: GENYCM Youth Catcher's Mitt may be too large at 31.00".
In 1842, J. Frederick Hillerich emigrated with his family from Baden-Baden, Germany to the United States. Eight years before, the 1834 Book of Sports had made its debut as the nation's first publication covering baseball. But when he arrived in Baltimore, J. Frederick Hillerich would never have dreamed of the future impact his family would have on America's favorite pastime. After a short while, the Hillerichs moved to Louisville, where J.
