FASTPITCH: First Base Mitt Double-Bar Web Design
Let me start by saying I'm a huge fan of the double-bar web design on any first base mitt, period. Fastpitch or baseball, it's a great option. But I especially love this web design for fastpitch. I also understand that no matter what I say, everything comes down to personal preference, but it's our blog, so I get to act like I'm right.
The double-bar web causes the glove to play wider (more open), because of its linear, or extended design. In the game of fastpitch, because of the size of the ball, I think the web that plays slightly wider is a perfect fit. I've always believed the triple post web causes a first base mitt to play a little longer and more narrow. Once again, I understand everything comes down to personal liking, but I've always felt there's more benefit to my mitt playing more open at first base.
The good news is if you disagree entirely, and you love the triple-post design, we have both options available at Earl Sports Co. Plan, design, and order your fastpitch custom first base mitt at Earl Sports Co.
