Henry in Texas

Pros: I bought this glove for my 19 year old college freshman. His previous glove was a Nokona that lasted 5 seasons. This 11.5" glove is a good option for lefties (as there aren't near as many as for righties). The glove was mostly broken in, and only required a few modifications to shape it like he likes it. This is a very good glove for the money.

Cons: Maybe the web isn't as sexy as other models, but will likely last longer than I and H webs.

Pros: When HS ball started, we upgraded from the Gamer XLE 2-PIECE to the HOH Dual Core. This glove really doesn't need no break in period. Great price for a HOH 2-PIECE!

Cons: IMO, maybe a tad too soft leather, but Im not the player...... just the parent.

How many years will this glove last for?
Chris
It is tough to say how long the 2016 Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series: PRO204DC-9B may or may not last. With proper care there is a good chance this glove would last for 4+ years; may have to replace the laces at some point.
Cameron
I know the size is rather small, but would this be acceptable for high school pitching and a little third base?
Anthony
Glove size ultimately comes down to personal preference, but the 2016 Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series: PRO204DC-9B would work fine for third base and pitching.
Jason
Will this fit an 11 yr old (normal size hand / wrist)?
GoDawgs
The fitting on this Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series (PRO204DC-9B) will be meant for an adult hand. Because of that fitting, it will be a little large for an 11 year old, but if you wanted something into which he could grow with time, this mitt might be one to consider.
Ben
What size is this glove? Would it be good for a HS third baseman?
FatChuck
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series (PRO204DC-9B) is an 11.5" mitt. This mitt is designed to be an infield mitt, it will work well as a third baseman mitt.
Mick
My son is almost 13 years old and will be playing 13U season coming up. He is a bit on the smaller side at around 5'1." Will this glove work for him or is there another option to consider? He can handle my Rawlings outfield glove, but that glove is worn in nicely.
Mark
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series: PRO204DC-9B would certainly be a great option for that age playing infield or pitching. The Dual Core technology on this particular glove will ease the break in and ability to close the glove if that is something you may be concerned with.
Logan
Would this glove be a better choice for pitching than a Wilson B212?
Ghj
Both gloves would be excellent options in my opinion. You couldn't go wrong with either choice.
Kyle J.
Would you recommend spending more for a Wilson B212 or less for this glove?
Baseball
Both gloves are excellent models and would suit a player well. The Wilson model will have slightly better leather quality which is reflected by the higher price point, but the Rawlings glove is an excellent model as well.
Kyle J.
My son will be 12 in April. He plays travel ball. He pitches and plays third base. He now is about 105 lbs and not quite 5 feet tall. Is this glove suitable?
John
Yes, the Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series: PRO204DC-9B would be a great choice for him at his age and positions.

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.
