Mizuno Global Elite GGE72 12.75" Baseball Glove - Red/Cream
The Global Elite line from Mizuno has gained a reputation as one of the most reliable and durable lines that Mizuno has to offer. Mizuno has added to this respected line by using a softer, lighter leather combined with its Counter Balance technology to keep the feel of this glove lighter than ever. The Counter Balance weight distribution will focus additional weight away from the fingers and closer to the palm. This will keep the glove feeling lighter, for quicker movements and reaction time on the field.
The GGE72 is 12.75" in length, designed for an outfielder and features Mizuno's Ichiro, trapeze web. This web pattern with extended fingers provides the fielder with a deep pocket to scoop tough grounders and secure fly-balls. The GGE72 also features Mizuno's new Axiom Shift Outfield Pattern. This design creates a larger pinky-finger slot that allows players to shift their ring, middle and index finger toward the pinky side of the glove, which creates a deeper pocket that elite players demand.
The shell, palm and web are composed of Mizuno's E-Lite, North American steerhide leather, which is some of the lighter leather that Mizuno has to offer. But don't take the lightness of the leather as a weakness - the Global Elite line is known for durability, and when it comes to that expectation, the E-Lite leather does not disappoint. The Rolled Welting along the fingers will also provide extra support, keeping the shape of the desired pocket for longer.
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.
The Global Elite line will arrive stiff, but with some work will break-in to the desired pocket - but more importantly, hold that shape for many games to come.
