Buster Posey Baseball Glove and Other Baseball Gear. What brand of catcher’s glove does Buster Posey use? His glove of choice is the Rawlings Heart of the Hide catcher’s mitt. In the video below, he tells us why he decided to pick Rawlings after trying several mitts.
His reason: comfort and durability.
Here’s a closer look at the three-time World Series champ with his Rawlings catcher’s mitt:
Home Run Monkey tells us more about the Rawlings Heart of the Hide Catchers Glove aka the Buster Posey baseball glove of choice: “The shell, palm and web are composed of Rawlings’ classic Heart of the Hide, steer hide leather. Since 1958, this premium steer hide has been the center of the Heart of the Hide collection and set the standard for not only Rawlings, but other glove manufacturers. The Heart of the Hide (HOH) leather is soft, but durable – giving the player a long-lasting glove that forms to the pocket s/he desires; which are qualities that players have come to expect from the HOH line.”
The site adds: “The hand opening features a conventional, open back with a laced binding. The conventional back allows for extra ventilation, while the laced binding provides a secure and snug fit – keeping the glove in place, even during the toughest plays. Keeping the glove together, the lacing throughout the HOH series is made from USA-tanned leather. This leather is extremely strong, so the player can worry less about a hard hit or fast thrown ball breaking brittle laces, and more about securing the ball in the pocket. Looking at the inside, the palm is lined with a smooth Deer-tanned cowhide – adding supreme comfort and protection to the inside of the mitt.”
