All-Star CG5000Y D30 Youth Protective Inner Glove is designed for both catching and fielding. Lightweight and thin D30 palm and finger pads absorb and spread shock over a larger surface area. Limiting the amount of nerve damage in the hand after repeated hard balls. Padding extends all the way to the wrist for those wild bad hops and all the way up through the index finer. Extra padding on side wrist bone. Palm of hand is constructed with white goat skin leather and the back is a seamless moisture wicking stretch back.
