The All Star Professional CM3000 Series is the mitt choice of many professional and amateur baseball catchers. Exclusive Japanese tanned steer hide allows for fast break in and extended life. Only the finest materials and hand craftmanship are used to make these exceptional mitts. The soft tan leather pocket allows for great feel and gives the ball that extra POP that pitchers love to hear. The black leather backing is stiffer and gives the mitt the right amount of support and increases its life. Each mitt is a work of art individually hand made.
