Rawlings fastpitch gloves inspire athletes of all ages to play to their full potential. The Heart of the Hide softball gloves gives the term'fits like a glove' a whole new meaning. The wrist opening, finger stalls, and overall glove shape are crafted precisely to the female athlete's hand for a snug, secure fit that won't disappoint.
With the patented Dual Core Technology, the breakpoints cut into the palm and allow for position specific defense and it enables the gloves to close naturally for a perfect break-in. Inside of each model, the palm lining is created out of the same leather as the outer shell for consistency, an easy pocket formation, and a super simple break-in. Rawlings has helped with the already quick break-in as each glove features an 80% factory break-in. Similar to all other Heart of the Hide gloves, the top 5% of Rawlings available steer hide is crafted and held together with the Tennessee Tanning Company's rawhide leather laces which add structure, shape, and strength. Last, but certainly not least, each fastpitch softball glove will come with padded thumb loops and plush finger back linings for superior comfort.
Rawlings: The Mark Of A Pro! This Rawlings Heart of the Hide Fastpitch Softball Glove (PRO715SB-2GW) features a small 11 3/4-inch size, a pro-I-web, and a narrow fit design that's intended for smaller hands.
Due to the size and the web, this model is mainly recommended for middle infielders at shortstop and second base. 11.75 Inch Glove Size. Deer Tanned Cowhide Plus Palm Lining Provides Exceptional Protection. Heart of the Hide Soft Leather Shell Is Cut From Top 5% Of Rawlings' Hides.
Narrow Fit Design Creates A Better Feel For Smaller Hands. Plush, Full-Grain Finger Back Lining Provides Unbeatable Feel & Fit. Tailored To The Female Athlete's Hand. Tennessee Tanning Company Rawhide Laces Add Structure & Strength.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) PRO715SB-2GW FASTPITCH SOFTBALL GLOVE 11.75 RH" is in sale since Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
