Catcher's Mitts (or Catcher's Gloves) are mitts designed exclusively for the catcher position. Catchers Mitts are measured in circumference rather than length and have an oval-shaped pocket. Most catchers mitts have a variation of a closed web design and more padding than a traditional fielder's glove.
Shop by Youth Catchers Mitts, Adult Catchers Mitts, and Fastpitch Softball Catchers Mitts. Or, sort by Right Hand Thrower or Left Hand Thrower catcher mitts, as well as brand, size, web style, or Closeout Catchers Mitts.
