Made to withstand the force of pro-level swings, Marucci settled for nothing less than Cabretta® leather in the Elite Batting Gloves. The Cabretta palm is fully embossed for maximum grip. On the back is a metallic leather that adds durability without interfering with your feel on the bat. Over the knuckles, a stretch material allows free finger movement and breathability that reduces heat and sweat buildup. The wrist construction, an afterthought in most gloves, is one of the big performance factors in the Elite gloves. The extra-wide Liteprene® cuff brings an innovative new material with the performance comfort of neoprene with a light and breathable twist. It fits securely, with a double-sewn closure that has been rubberized for dirty, no matter how many times you drag it through the dirt. You'll see this glove on-field in 2014 on power hitters like Jose Bautista.
