Out with the Old…

There’s a colorful and informative article by David Waldstein of The New York Times on a well-worn Rawlings catcher’s mitt that’s ready for retirement. Only problem is, the new mitt (also a Rawlings) isn’t quite broken in yet.

I knew catchers used a special mitt for pitchers who throw knuckleballs, but I didn’t know the pitcher generally supplies it. Did you know that?

The special mitt has a big surface area, larger than that of a normal catcher’s mitt, and it’s a lot lighter and more flexible. So light and flexible, in fact, that durability can be a problem, so it’s good to have its successor waiting in the wings.
