12 Year Old Son Loves This Glove Owen S. Parent

Pros: This glove is high quality and worth the price. My son has been through 2 Rawlings Gamer First Base Gloves in the past 3 seasons of tournament baseball. I finally decided to buy him a glove I know that will last a few seasons. He's been using a 12" and is growing into this glove. He says the glove is not heavy at all and loves the feel. The laces are high quality as well. He's never used a fastback but he hasn't said anything about it. I think he's just glad to have a high quality glove.

Cons: No cons after 2 months of ownership.

Have a question about the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 12.25" First Base Mitt: PROFM20BGS? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

I know this isn't a popular question, but this is a major investment from us to our son. Would you recommend this glove quality wise/ palm padding/ durability, or the Wilson A2000 1716? We are stuck between these two gloves. This one doesn't have a review. I'm hoping for an honest answer. Player will be 10.
Please help
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide 12.25" First Base Mitt: PROFM20BGS is going to be very comparable to a Wilson A2000 in terms of quality, padding and durability. The issue with this mitt would for a player that is 10 is the wrist opening and finger stalls. Although this mitt would last awhile the fit will be more for an adult hand. If seeking a Rawlings HOH 1B mitt for a 10 year old, we would recommend the **Exclusive** Rawlings Heart of the Hide SWAG 12.25" Youth First Base Mitt: PROFM16BG.
Cameron
Is this the correct size for a 13 and under player?
Dan
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide 12.25" First Base Mitt: PROFM20BGS will have an adult hand fit, because of that I believe the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 12.25" First Base Mitt: PROFM20BGS will be too large for the hand of a 13-year-old. The size of 12.25'' would be a great option, but it will most likely be too large for a 13-year-old player.

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.
