Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series
Constructed with USA Horween leather and Rawlings-patented Dual Core Technology, the Heart of the Hide Dual Core fielder’s gloves are designed with position-specific break points in the glove pattern so players can achieve top-level performance customized for their defensive needs. These break points enable the glove to close naturally and easily depending on the needs of the position. Additionally, these gloves are specially-tanned for a softer feel, allowing for less break-in time. The world-renowned Rawlings Heart of the Hide series originated in 1958 and still represents one of the finest glove lines in baseball today.

With its deep pocket and open web, this glove is primarily for outfielders. This leather is tanned softer for that game ready feel with the durability and consistency remaining the same. The softness of the new leather allows for less break in time. This Series of gloves now features Dual Core Technology, which is position specific break points in the glove pattern.
Pro H Web
Two vertical bars are connected by a horizontal strip, providing increased stability and glove control. This web was designed so that outfielders could see through the web to make catches and shield their eyes from the sun or lights at the same time.This web is extremely versatile and can be used in the infield and outfield.
Heart of the Hide Leather
Heart of the Hide steer hide leather tends to be the prime cut or center portion of the smaller hide and is usually thicker than other leathers. The leather from the center area of the hide typically has less stretch, resulting in a firm glove that’s easier to shape. This top grade leather will allow the glove to mold to the players hand for a proper feel and still maintain the durability needed to play at the highest level. Handcrafted from the top 5% of steer hides, this leather has made the Heart of the Hide Series the most sought after gloves in the market.

Choosing a Glove
|Position ||Glove Characteristics |
|Catcher||These gloves have no finger channels, with heavy palm padding and overall reinforcements to reduce the sting of repeatedly catching pitchers' throws. |
|Pitcher (Infield)||Choose a mid-size glove that's easy to control. Closed and Modified Trap webs work best at this position, letting you disguise your pitches by hiding the ball.|
|First Base (Infield)||These gloves also lacks finger channels, but with less padding that a catcher's mitt, with added length to help catch infield throws and a shallow pocket, enabling quick ball retrieval. |
|Second Base (Infield)||Choose a smaller glove with a shallow pocket, balancing control with the need to make quick throws. |
|Short Stop (Infield)||Go to a smaller/mid size glove with a shallow pocket for ground balls and quick throws.|
|Third Base (Infield)||Choose a medium to large glove with a shallow to mid-size pocket for maximum catching power. |
|Outfield||Choose a longer glove to provide extended reach, with a deep pocket to handle high-lofting balls. |
