"Our guys love using the training mitts for all of our defensive work. Every catcher can improve in all areas. The smaller mitt forces them to focus and concentrate on receiving the ball properly. The smaller mitt also helps to develop quicker transfers when throwing to the bases."
Charlie Greene, Milwaukee Brewers - Catching Instructor
"Yes, it is true that I am a believer in your small version training mitt, especially the one with the partial web and built in thumb support. I use high velocity catching drills involving machine fastballs in excess of 100 mph fired in rapid sequence to improve eye-hand coordination. Your training mitt forces the catcher to catch the ball in the proper part of the pocket or risk clanking it. This area of the pocket is also most conducive to making clean and rapid transfers to throw."
Mike Compton, Philadelphia Phillies - Catching Instructor
