The Pitcher's Mitt is an accessory purchasable from certain shops. They can also be found in crates as a semi-rare drop. They appear as a brown glove, not to be confused with the green climbing gloves. Pitching gloves bought in shops cost 3600 plus an additional 400 for every level past the first.
Once obtained, the Pitcher's Mitt increases the speed and flattens the trajectory of thrown objects, allowing light objects (such as stones and pots) to be hurled much farther, and making heavy objects (such as chests and Idols) more practical weapons. They can be equipped at the same time as climbing gloves. Using a Pitcher's Mitt to throw an arrow into any wall tile (but not stone and push blocks) will stick it into the tile, thus allowing you to grab onto it as you would a ledge, a feat that can otherwise be accomplished only by shooting the arrow with a bow or performing a running throw.
Interestingly, the Pitcher's Mitt doesn't impact the way bombs are thrown when using the bomb shortcut key ("A" by default).
A secondary effect is that if you throw an item that would hit the Spelunker on the rebound, he'll catch it, causing no harm to himself.
If you throw a dice with the Pitcher's Mitt equipped, you will notice that you'll be able to catch the dice flying before it stops on the Dice House's floor: end of the throwing sequence, when the die already shows his points, will be in a sort of slow motion, allowing you to catch the die and throw it again (without angering the Shopkeeperat all) looking for a better result. With a little timing and patience this may allow you to earn huge amounts of money and prize items.
