Glove Benefits

Heart of the Hide gloves are made from patterns specifically designed for high-level players. The thermo-formed wrist lining is especially helpful for catchers, as the moisture-wicking material helps keep your glove hand dry behind the plate. The Salvador Perez mitt features cowhide lining in the palm and a padded thumb sleeve to minimize sting. The adjustable wrist strap helps you stay in control when you're digging balls out of the dirt or catching for a hard-throwing pitcher. As you break this glove in, you can create the pocket that helps you easily get the ball out quickly for gunning down runners.

New catchers mitt Trey Burks Player

Pros: Great glove. I was able to use this glove in a game the day I got it with a lot of work throughout the day. Formed a great pocket and has great padding too. I love the blonde color with brown lacing and the blue patch

Cons: A little right around the pinky area but it does loosen up with some work.

Laces busted & loss of shape Brady Player

Pros: It is a very beautiful glove.

Cons: The laces busted after 5 months, they are thin and not very sturdy. The web is massive on this mitt and it felt like baseballs would rattle around after hitting the pocket into the web. While I was breaking in the mitt, it began to lose its shape. I am a college catcher and take pride in my ability to break in catchers mitts. I am very disappointed in this mitt, I had very high hopes for it.

Looking for this mitt in a youth model.
Greg
Unfortunately the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 32.5" Salvador Perez Catcher's Mitt: PROSP13C is not featured in a youth fit. A model that could work for a youth player is the Rawlings Heart of the Hide R2G 33" Catcher's Mitt: PRORCM33-23BC.
Cameron
Is the used glove already broken in or is it still possible to form it to my preferences?
julian dambacher
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide 32.5" Salvador Perez Catcher's Mitt: PROSP13C requires about 60% player break in, so you will be able to form it how you like.
Tori
My daughter is infatuated with Salvador Perez. Is there a Fastpitch model for his signature glove?
John
When it comes to the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 32.5" Salvador Perez Catcher's Mitt: PROSP13C we do not have this glove in a fast pitch softball model.
Ben
I am not sure what you consider “youth”. I am looking for a good quality catcher’s glove for 12u son. If this is too large, what do you recommend?
Jeremy
The leather quality and wrist/finger stall set up on the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 32.5" Salvador Perez Catcher's Mitt: PROSP13C is designed for an "adult" player. This is a great mitt for a player that is 13 years or older. The mitt does feature a wrist strap but there is not much adjusting that can be done if the player prefers, or has a smaller hand, a more snug fit. If you are seeking a high quality catcher's mitt, this model will certainly fit the bill but it will require time and patience breaking-in. If seeking more of a true "youth" fitting mitt, then the Rawlings R9 Series 32.5" Catcher's Mitt: R9CM325BSG would be a better option to consider.
Cameron
How do I figure out what size catchers glove to get for my son? He is 12 years old (will be 13 by baseball season), about 5’10 and 145ish pounds. Also, I was looking at this glove and the Akadema precision series preying mantis apm241. Can you please tell me the differences between these gloves. Thanks.
Josh
Glove size is all personal preference for catchers. Some like to use a very large 34" or 35" size, while other prefer smaller 32"-32.5". A 32.5" would certainly work for your player. Whatever they are most comfortable with is most important. The biggest difference between the two gloves is the overall leather quality which will be a bit higher in this Heart of the Hide model. The Akadema is made for an easier break in time and lower overall pitch speeds, while the Heart of the Hide will be much stiffer and take more time to break in, but will hold up better against faster pitch speeds at the high school level.
Kyle
What is the weight of this mitt?
Wade Napier
Unfortunately, we do not know the weight of the Rawlings Heart of the Hide 32.5" Salvador Perez Catcher's Mitt: PROSP13C.
Cameron
Is there an effective way to hold the index finger out behind the glove?
Trevor Hale
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide 32.5" Salvador Perez Catcher's Mitt: PROSP13C features a index finger hood for protection and comfort. One would not be able to comfortably have their index finger outside of this.

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's 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.
