The Akadema® APM-40 Praying Mantis Series 33.5-in baseball catcher's mitt utilizes "Stress Wedge" technology with shock-absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. Double-sided Slim Padding allows for increased pocket size and easier ball retention and the nique shape gives the throwing hand easier access into the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove-to-hand transfer and faster times to second base.
