Can I have a wrist guard attached to this glove with purchase?
We do not customize gloves since we do not manufacturer them, so we would not be able to add this on.
Would this be a good glove for high school and college level play? My son uses the Mizuno GXC93 and he like it a lot, but now and with the higher pitching velocities (80-85mph) it hurts his hand. He is 6'2" and about 230 pounds. Thanks
This glove should work just fine for high school play. I would probably recommend something a bit higher quality for college play or when you start seeing velocities of 85+ more regularly, as I wouldn't anticipate the padding holding up much more than one season against 85+.
Can this glove be used for fastpitch softball? A teammate of mine has this glove and I love the thumb guard, but is there any reason why I should not get it since it is considered a baseball mitt?
The Mizuno Samurai Pro Series: GXC31 Catcher's Mitt can be used for softball, but it features a smaller pocket designed for baseball so you will want to consider that before purchasing.
Mizuno's top craftsmen have over 65 years of combined glove making experience that translates into high quality ball gloves for players of all ages. The new Samurai Series catcher's mitts are no different. Made from full grain oil-treated leather, these mitts are soft to the touch and easy to break in. That doesn't mean that they sacrifice any durability or hand protection. Featuring patent pending thumb protection technology, these mitts are easy to close while still providing that extra protection on the inside of your hand. The Samurai Series mitts also feature Mizuno's ParaShock Palm Pad that absorbs sting even after repeated use. ParaShock provides less rebound, more protection, and an overall sense of comfort for catcher's. These mitts feature a conventional open back and a two-piece closed web to give players fantastic control behind the plate. The GXC31 is a pro-sized catcher's mitt that is the ideal for the serious ball player. Mizuno: Never Settle! Free Shipping!
