- Infield gloves: The Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.75-inch fielding glove or the Select Pro Lite 11.5-inch fielding glove are examples of infield gloves. It is made of leather, has a cushioned fingerback lining, as well as palm and index finger padding. The Select Pro Lite is a Kris Bryant design model.

The Rawlings 2018 Liberty Advanced 34-inch softball mitt for catchers is made of leather laces and full grain leather shells. Additional examples of the catchers mitt are the Renegade 32.5-inch catcher’s mitt and the Player Preferred 33-inch catcher’s mitt.
