Catcher’s gloves may look a little strange versus other baseball and softball gloves. But the thick padding in the catcher’s glove protects the player’s hand from repeated hard-thrown pitches. Catcher’s mitts for baseball and softball look similar to each other. They have wide padding around the edges of the glove. These funnel the ball back toward the middle of the glove and the small pocket. Because catchers need to block pitches in the dirt, the catcher’s glove’s large size helps with this task. Catcher’s gloves tend to have extra support in the back versus other baseball and softball gloves. This support prevents the wrist from bending backward on hard-thrown pitches. Backs on catcher’s mitts that provide the most wrist support are called closed. The open style of back allows the wrist to move more freely with less support.
