The Eagle Glove Pad is the perfect companion for any of the Eagle training gloves, and especially the catcher’s training models. Placed inside the index finger slot of the mitt, it provides tremendous reduction in the impact of the baseball when training. Bone bruises are very common for catcher’s because of the high velocity pitches they are receiving over and over again during a game or doing bullpen work, or training off a machine. Catching the ball in the very same spot time after time, will make the transfer of the ball from the mitt to the throwing hand, very efficient, but will also at times give brusing to the hand which is taking the impact repeatedly.
The Eagle Glove Pad, is a high quality pad, that is sandwiched between an all leather jacket. It is made to last and get the job done for any player at any position. It can also be reversed to have the bottom “L” shaped side, be tucked under the thumb, so it not only provided padding to the hand, but also supports the thumb when the ball is “not” caught properly , thus reducing the risk of injury. Because it can be reversed to the other flip side, it is perfect and comfortable for both a left handed and right handed thrower.
