The RCV1200-22 is the perfect glove for fastpitch. It's crafted of pro-grade 5 oz. Steer hide leather with a deep pocket that ensures excellent control. The shock pads guard against injury by absorbing the impact of the baseball, and the deer tanned cowhide interior leather lined finger stalls keep you comfortable so you can stay focused on the game. Also a great glove for a baseball pitcher or third baseman. All-in-all, this glove is a great choice for anyone who's serious about their game.
