TBA's Top Training tools for Catchers

1. All-Star "The Pocket" 27 inch Mitt

There's nothing better to work on receiving than a smaller mitt.  This tiny catcher's mitt forces catchers to use the pocker and not rely on the web. MAjor League baseball players still train with this glove.
2. All-Star 35" Catcher's Training Mitt

Another great training mitt in All-Star's line. This glove has removed the web entirely to force catchers to receive the ball in the pocket.

3. All-Star "The Donut" Training Mitt

You can't eat this glove, but it will train you to "eat" a pitch with soft hands. Great glove for learning how to receive low pitches without pushing the ball down and out of the strike zone.
