The All-Star System Seven™ FGS7-FB 13.00" First Base mitt is perfect for picking balls out of the dirt. Just like the CM3000 series catching mitts, the FGS7-FB has insane POP when receiving the ball. The two shades of leather were meant to be used together, as each shade has very distinct properties. The softer tan leather on the inside helps develop an amazing pocket and fast break in times, while the black leather on the back gives support for added life. Pro Guard Padding (PGP) in the palm lets you know that you have the ball but helps remove the sting.
