Hi all! Happy Sunday! I am looking for a catcher’s glove for my husband to use when my 10 yo DD pitches to him. This might be a lame question, but Is there a specific gloves that an adult man would use vs. a woman’s softball glove? Any recommendations would be appreciated. He is always complaining about his poor hand. Lol. Thanks!

I meant to add... is there a glove he can use now in 10u that can transition to 12u?

You've just got to get rude with it, no other way around it! There's been several guys here before that said their All-Star CMW300 was fairly easy to break in, I must have got the exception........that mitt just about whooped me! I don't recommend putting any conditioner on it right now, break it in dry! Use a dumbbell or mallet to set the break points at the heel, and just start using it!

Remember when breaking in a catchers mitt, you're breaking in the padding probably.....no definitely more than the leather! And those palm pads have a stubborn memory, one night while you're using it and it starts feeling good, after it cools down overnight it goes right back to being stubborn again the very next day! Don't sweat it, slower is better!
