Just came in and spent the day breaking it in. Matt Morgan Other

Pros: Initial thoughts are that a deep pocket can be developed in this glove. It is stiff, but just a bit of conditioner and an hour of playing catch has helped tremendously. It’s a good looking and well made glove.

Cons: The glove is stiff, but not so stiff that it can’t be worked in. The finger wells are small and will need to be stretched. My middle finger and ring finger were sore from being squeezed.

Have a question about the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove: PRO204-1GBWT? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is this glove pretty much the newer version of the Heart of the Hide (PROTT2)?
Person
Although, I would not say that this is built to be the exact replacement of the Rawlings Heart of the Hide Gold Glove Winners Series (PROTT2), I will remark that the PROTT2 and this 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove (PRO204-1GBWT) will be very similar as both gloves feature Heart of the Hide quality leather, an 11.50" length, T-Web and brown/tan leather.
Ben
Does this web pattern have a shallower pocket than the I-Web?
Jacobo
The T-Web featured on this 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove (PRO204-1GBWT) would not necessarily be a factor in producing less of a pocket when compared to a glove of the same length that features an I-Web. Unfortunately, there is no measurement for comparing pocket size and a lot of times the comparisons made are just opinions of individuals.
Ben
Does the leather stretch which makes the glove play bigger over time like other gloves?
walshing machine
Any leather will eventually stretch with repeated use, but the Heart of the Hide gloves, such as the 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove: PRO204-1GBWT, use a leather that tends to hold its shape well over time, but will gradually stretch eventually.
Logan
How does the Wing Tip design feel compared to a traditionally cut HoH glove? What is the purpose or advantage of the Wing Tip back?
Boru
The original purpose of the wing-tip design was to allow for a more comfortable feel on the knuckles and backs of fingers on the glove hand. However, Rawlings has advanced the design of the inside of their mitts, that even a regular designed backing of the glove allows for a comfortable hand-fitting. The wing-tip design on this 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove (PRO204-1GBWT) and all other Rawlings mitts that feature the design is just a cosmetic thing to make the gloves look cool.
Ben
How used will the used glove be?
Michael
The 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove: PRO204-1GBWT will be in excellent condition, which means the glove will still have the shape of the glove and barely been used.
Max
How does this compare to the Rawlings PRO204P?
Hank
Without the full product code of the other Rawlings glove it would be hard to compare the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove: PRO204-1GBWT. The likely only difference though would be in the web design.
Cameron
I'm a lefty so I'll need to order one through the customizer. What are the colors of this glove exactly? Laces, leather, welting, stitching, etc.
Austin Roberts
To our best knowledge, the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 11.5" Baseball Glove: PRO204-1GBWT features an all-brown design. The laces appear to be more chocolate colored. Best recommendation would be to play with the custom builder and compare specs as you move through it.

About the Brand

Rawlings is a major manufacturer of competitive team sports equipment and apparel for baseball, basketball, and football, as well as licensed MLB, NFL, and NCAA retail products. Rawlings is a major supplier to professional, collegiate, interscholastic and amateur organizations worldwide, including the Official Baseball Supplier to Major League Baseball.

The first real innovation in glove making occurred in 1912 when Rawlings Sporting Goods Company introduced the "Sure Catch" glove, which was "endorsed by leading players all over the country." The Sure Catch was a one-piece glove with sewn-in finger channels and looked better suited for a duck's foot than a man's hand. Catchers' mitts used at the time were large and bulky with a single leather thong passing for a web.

In 1920, Bill Doak, a journeyman pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, approached Rawlings with an idea for improving the baseball glove from a mere protective device to a genuine aid in fielding. The "Bill Doak" model was so revolutionary that it stayed in Rawlings' line until 1953. Its key feature was a multi-thong web laced into the first finger and thumb, which created for the first time in baseball's young life, a natural pocket.

In 1925, Rawlings unveiled a three-fingered fielder's glove, and ten years later improved the Bill Doak model with a two-piece leather web. At the same time, the "T" web became a rage for first basemen's mitts. The pocket underwent a pronounced change in 1941 when the Trapper Mitt, also known as the Claw, appeared. The "Deep Well" pocket was so unique that Rawlings quickly patented it. The design was improved in 1950 by adding a leather piece across the top. Another significant creation occurred in 1948 with the three-fingered Playmaker. A five-fingered fielder's model, with all fingers laced together, provided greater pocket control.

The six-fingered Trap-Eze evolved in the 1960's. In more recent years, Rawlings produced the Fastback design, which gives a glove a snugger fit, greater extension, and overall control. The Holdster is a slot through which a finger can be extended for additional protection from impacts on the pocket. Then, there is the Edge-U-Cated Heel with its extended U-shaped lacing and the Pro H Web and much-copied Basket Web.

Some of Rawlings more recent glove innovations also include the unique Spin-Stopper design which reduces ball spin when the ball hits the glove, and the Cantilever glove design feature that provides a cushioned area between the hand and the glove's palm area. In all, Rawlings has produced and patented more functionally innovative glove features and designs than that of any other glove manufacturer. The result is that the modern baseball glove is much larger, more comfortable, better padded and made to last far longer than its ancestors. It is not uncommon to see today's Major League players wearing the same Rawlings' glove they wore during their college playing days. In fact, Rawlings is the #1 glove in the major leagues. Rawlings maintains about 65 models of baseball and softball mitts and gloves in its line. The prototypes of virtually all of them have been field tested by professionals before entering a sporting goods dealer's inventory.
