BRAND NEW W/ TAGS RAWLINGS HEART OF THE HIDE (HOH) DUAL CORE PRO 314-2 BR BASEBALL GLOVE - 11.5 RH (Right Hand Throw). MESSAGE ME FOR BEST PRICE AT: 1 5868058080. PLEASE NOTE THE CAMERA FLASH HAS A TENDENCY TO LIGHTEN AND/OR DISTORT CERTAIN COLORS. THE COLOR OF THE GLOVE IS BLACK & ROYAL. For over 125 years, Rawlings has consistently released only the highest quality and longest lasting game day gloves in baseball and the Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series has always been a fielder's top choice.
The Dual Core Technology associated with these gloves is a cut into the palm lining allowing for position specific break points for a personalized fit and an easy, natural closure. During the catch, the inner palm adjusts to the shape of the outer palm; efficiently absorbing impact and protecting the player's hand from any sting. Additionally, since these gloves consist of the exclusive Horween "Featherlite" leather, the Dual Core baseball gloves undergo a rigorous tanning process which results in a soft, game-ready feel and less of a break-in period. Rawlings has done a lot of the work for you and applied a 75% factory break-in to these models. Not only is there less of a break-in period, but since the palm lining is the same material as the shell, the Heart of the Hide Dual Core gloves experience a consistent break-in and have excellent pocket formation throughout the life of the glove.
Similar to that of other Rawlings ball gloves, the Tennessee tanning rawhide leather laces tie it all together while adding structure, durability, and strength. Last, but not least, the thumb loops will come padded for a luxurious and comfortable feel. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro! This 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Baseball Glove: PRO314DC-2BR features an 11.50 inch pattern, a pro I-web, and is a narrow fit pattern with a smaller hand opening for a more secure fit.
Additionally, the PRO314DC-2BR features the 31 design meaning the pocket is wider which allows for quicker ball transfers. Break-In: 25% Player, 75% Factory.

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.The item "RAWLINGS HEART OF THE HIDE (HOH) DUAL CORE PRO314-2BR GLOVE 11.5 RH $259.99" is in sale since Monday, January 29, 2018.
