or years, All Star's catcher's mitts and equipment have been highly regarded among those who play the position. All Star has created the System Seven Series line of fielders gloves for the most serious players. Using the highest quality Japanese Maruhashi Black and Tan leather allows these gloves to have long lasting durability. The solid black leather provides a slightly stiffer feel and a long lasting glove. Inside, All Star's Pro Guard Padding provides a thin layer of extra padding in the palm that helps kill the sting of mis-caught balls, yet is thin enough to still allow the player to know right where the ball is in the glove. This 11.50 Inch infield model features a conventional open back and a shallow pocket for easy scooping and quick ball transfer.
Great leather, great look
The leather is very stiff and needs a players break in. Love the feel and the look on your hand. Very good value for the price.
I've been a huge Rawlings fans all my life. Still am! But this All Star Systems 7 is on par with Rawlings Heart of the Hide gloves (and Wilson A2000). Maybe close to the Rawlings Pro Preferred. Solid leather but I like them that way when they're new. Breaking a good glove in is a ritual.
Very happy with this glove. And purchased from Ballgloves.com at a great price. I've purchased baseball gloves from Ballgloves.com several times and they continue to provide excellent customer service, an easy to navigate website and ordering process, and good prices.
