The Gold Glove edition of Rawlings baseball gloves has been designed with the highest standard of defensive greatness in mind – the Gold Glove Award.
The RGG1275H is 12.75” in length, ideal for an outfielder. This glove features Rawlings’ Pro-H web, looking as described, an “H”. The H design makes for a deep pocket for ease in scooping grounders and eating up fly balls – as well as spaces in the web for a balance of visibility through the glove for a high-fly, while blocking some of the sun’s rays.
The shell, palm, web and lacing are composed of very supple and stiff, but durableEuropean leather. This glove also features an ultra-premium, luxury palm lining and hand-sewn welting.In addition to the top quality materials, Rawlings has also included their Opti-Core technology into the palm – layers of pre-curved padding for a custom feel, added protection and extra longevity for the life of the glove.
The hand opening features a conventional, open back with a laced binding. The conventional back allows for extra ventilation, while the laced binding provides a secure and snug fit – keeping the glove in place, even during the toughest plays.
The RGG1275H Gold Glove is cut, shaped and put together by a single, master craftsman the entire way through the process. This craftsman takes the time to break-in the glove about 20% of the way, leaving about 80% of the break-in for the player to shape and form the glove, just the way s/he prefers. Each glove includes a serial number indicating the craftsman, date created and glove production number. The RGG1275H Gold Glove from Rawlings is for the elite player looking for an elite glove to match the level of play.
This mitt is great for outfielders. The web holds up great. Takes a little while to break in though.Review by Philip41201 (Posted on 12/29/2013)
