    Rawlings MACH Jr. Catcher Helmet Review

    Thanks for the awesome review. I'm really going to have to check out that chin strap up close. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    Needing a new, custom catchers mitt. Thinking about getting a custom Marucci.

    Where is our catcher's glove measurement database? Sounds like a job for Eric. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    SCORE!! - Wilson ProMotion chest protectors

    Well, at $37 shipped for new 16" Pro Motion shins in her color (royal blue) I pulled the trigger. We'll see if she likes them. She gave them the side eye when I showed her the picture and explained the lack of plastic on the thigh. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    Yeah. The irony is not lost on me.

    New to catching - advice on gear needed

    He was working on fielding and situational drills. I'm not sure if he saw much of the catcher work if any at all. She seemed to catch the 14" ball all right when they had her pitcher working with one. I'm hoping this doesn't come up again and it'll be a funny little anecdote between my...

    SCORE!! - Wilson ProMotion chest protectors

    One thing I've noticed between baseball and softball leg guards is that baseball adds an extra "plate" between the knee and the thigh cap. I'm guess because the ball is smaller.?. Since she's moving out of the 14.5" shins, it looks like we'll be forced to use the baseball shins if we go with...

    Mitt for 10U

    Walmart dot com has the 33" Xeno left hand throw for $50. I've only messed with them on the shelf, and they seemed stiff (which to me is a good thing). Open web, single hinge, finger hood. What's not to like for that price? LHT Xeno Catcher's Mitt link

    New to catching - advice on gear needed

    So, last night, my DD's new coach, she just moved up to 12U, looked at her All-Star CMW3000, and said it looked too small. She needed to get a 34" glove. She turned and looked at me and smiled like "Yeah sure. We'll get right on that ;-)" And, as far as I know, the 33.5" in All-Star might...

    SCORE!! - Wilson ProMotion chest protectors

    Royal blue happens to be my daughter's favorite gear color. She's about outgrown her current legs. Are the Promotion legs that good? She's been wearing the All-Star made Under Armor Pro Legs, so I figured I'd get her All-Star, but I can find the Promotion at very reasonable (cheap) prices...

    Mitt for 10U

    Not the glove you're looking for, probably not the glove I'm looking for, but every time I see the left handed nokona catchers mitt on for $179, I'm a little jealous of lefties.

    I couldn't actually say. I don't want to make a statement that's glove blaspheme, I can only speak from my experience. My fingers aren't huge, and I was using the glove, so it's not like she got a real "before" feel for it. Most gloves are big on her skinny hands anyway. When I went to the...

    New to catching - advice on gear needed

    For the first year and a half of 10u my daughter used an Easton Synergy 33" catchers mitt that we got during 8u. It was really soft, and it really didn't seem to have a very good pocket, but she liked it. Some of our pitchers threw so slowly that even in the second year of 10u she still used...

    Any luck finding Pro-Motion legs?

    I'm a fan of this glove as well. It looks like it's now the CMW3001 Af-Elite.
