7 Best 2018 Catchers Mitts

7 Best 2018 Catchers Mitts

Playing behind the dish takes a certain amount of skill, be it baseball or softball. So, to play catcher also takes a special glove. Or, mitt.

JustBallGloves.com's catches you up on what players, coaches, and parents consider the seven (7) best 2018 catchers mitts. 

Technically speaking, it's not a catcher's glove. Gloves have fingers cut in them, such as garden gloves, workman gloves, and infielders gloves. Mitts cover the whole hands, which is why gloves for first base and catchers are almost-always called mitts; they don't have individual compartments for each finger.
