Our Recommended Training Tools and Equipment For Catching

Updated: Feb 28



If you've made it to this page, we want you to know that we're grateful and excited that you're spending some of your time here at KGS. If you follow us on Instagram, you'll see that we just surpassed the 2,000 follower mark. Though modest, we cannot thank you enough for your support. We're beginning to see how this community of baseball players, parents, coaches, and fans is coming together and all we can say is thank you (insert knuckle bump).


If you've been following along with us on this journey, odds are that you've noticed the various tools and equipment that we use in our programs and private instruction. As much as we would like to say that it is optimal to only have your self and some baseballs to maximize your training, this is simply not true. Access to equipment greatly aids your training capability. On the professional side, there are tools that we use everyday in order to mimic a game like setting or emphasize a feel.


That said, for our first post on our "Learn" page we want to provide you with a list of the catching equipment that we use to train ourselves and our athletes. You are able to buy these tools directly from Amazon, our own site, and any other platforms that we trust for training equipment. And just to make sure we're being completely honest, when you purchase any products below from Amazon we may make a small commission on the sale:
