Every position in baseball has its own unique challenges. In fact, just about every position is demanding, and players are required to pull off an often challenging feat. However, catchers are involved in some part in every play.
Catchers are handling a lot behind the plate, and that’s why they are more prone to injuries and especially hand–related injuries. After all catching fastballs during the game and warm up pitches throughout the game isn’t an easy feat. A PalmGuard helps to take the sting out of repeatedly catching heaters all game long.
