IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THE COLOR OF THE GLOVE, PLEASE REFER TO THE RAWLING'S WEBSITE OR THE LISTED STOCK PICTURE (#4). THIS GLOVE IS FROM THE RAWLING'S PRO SHOP AND IS ISSUED TO MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL (MLB) PLAYERS. THESE GLOVES WERE GIVEN TO PLAYERS AT MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL'S 2017 (MLB) SPRING TRAINING SESSIONS AND LEFTOVER GLOVES WERE LATER OFFERED WITHIN THE RETAIL MARKET BY RAWLINGS.THESE GLOVES AREN'T NORMALLY AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. These Rawlings are individually handcrafted with limited edition designs. Here is your chance to put your hand in the same glove as some of the league's best.
Rawlings bring an excess of baseball gloves with them to Spring Training each year so that they can supply their Advisory Staff Major League Baseball players with an exuberant amount to choose from. Once Spring Training is all said and done, there is always a surplus that did not get utilized on the field and one man's overstock is another man's treasure. With a long-lasting, full-grain kip leather construction, the Pro Preferred baseball gloves offer a splendid break in, a perfect pocket, and impeccable structure with season after season performance. Inside of these models, Rawlings has applied their Pittards sheepskin palm lining which also offers extraordinary protection with a rich feel. Not to mention, on the back of your hand, a 100% wool wrist liner helps wick away sweat while keeping your hand cool and dry.
On top of that, Deertouch finger back linings provide a smooth, luxurious impression that can't be beaten. Tennessee tanned rawhide leather laces tie it all together to add unbeatable structure and strength. Rawlings: For The Professional Player!
100% Water Resistant Wool Wrist Pad. Break-In: 60% Player, 40% Factory. Deertouch Finger Back Lining Adds Unmatched Luxury. Full-Grain Kip Leather Provides Long Lasting Structure. Mesh Back Provides Lightweight Feel Without Sacrificing Structure.
Pittards Sheepskin Palm Lining Adds Superior Comfort & Protection. Professional Padding Aids In Pocket Formation & Shape Retention. Tennessee Tanning Rawhide Leather Laces Add Structure, Durability, & Strength. TIP: Many of the higher-end premium gloves produced by Rawlings, Wilson, Mizuno, etc. Have inner pockets that are pre-oiled at the factory.
There is a tendency for the oil to bleed through (particularly on the lighter tan and brown colored gloves) and it is not uncommon to see what appears to be an oil stain of varying degree in the palm area of these gloves. I have received gloves in the past that arrived without any evidence of oil and within months, the oil bleeds through into the palm. Many of the gloves ordered off of "stock"pictures on the internet will end up having this condition.TIP: Many of the premium gloves including Rawlings Pro Preferred & Heart of the Hide, Wilson's A2000 & A3000, Mizuno's Classic Pro and Pro Limited, etc. Are somewhat stiff when brand new. A quality glove conditioner will do much to reduce the break-in period for any stiff new glove. Almost all glove conditioners will generally darken the leather and appearance of lighter colored gloves.
TIP: Regardless of whether you prefer the natural method of breaking in a glove, sooner or later you will have to recondition your glove! Personally, I recommend cleaning and conditioning a glove each and every year after a good season of use. All leather gloves will start to dry out and laces will become brittle when subjected to regular use. Prolonged exposure to sand and dirt, wind, rain, hot sun, etc.Will take its toll on even the very best glove. PLEASE stay away from those cheap oils, foams or other liquid products out there on the market. The foams don't work and liquids such as oils are absorbed deep into the glove, add a tremendous amount of weight, and are nothing more than a magnet for attracting dirt and debris.
Also, PLEASE don't ever bake your baseball glove in the oven or microwave or soak it in the tub to aid in the break-in process. You will invariably destroy a very fine piece of leather and take years off a gloves life!Personally, I never use anything but a paste type glove conditioner. Although I prefer Wilson Pro Stock Glove Conditioner, there are comparable products on the market from manufacturers such as Easton, Nokona, etc. Regardless of what brand of paste type conditioner you choose to use, do yourself a favor and make sure it contains lanolin and vitamin E. Nothing is better at restoring and revitalizing the leather on your glove! With a little care, your glove should last for many years and most likely outlive your baseball career. 17980-49 DS 041419 / 17625-18.
