Pros: For any that have owned a Rawlings HOH before, these new pre-oiled gloves are a dream to break in. I haven't had to use any product on it so far - simply playing catch and throwing a ball into it while watching TV has developed a nice, deep pocket and helped the glove form to my hand. The web is comprised of top grade lace, the palm provides complete coverage. The fastback, while not as cooling as an open back, makes for a really secure fit. After wearing it for a few weeks, it feels like it was made for my hand. Simple, but beautiful look - I've gotten several compliments on it. Overall, very happy with the purchase.

Cons: Ironically, the only reason I didn't give the full 5 stars is because of the pre-oil treatment. I've owned enough gloves to know if you want a glove to last forever it takes work (oiling, breaking it in). I have a feeling this will last me a good number of seasons, but not as many as the old dry HOHs used to. Time will tell. However, for someone who plays casually, or simply wants a top-quality glove for catch, this is an ideal fit.

Pros: Compared to prior gloves this is a very nice glove. Quality feel and performance! Purchased for my 13 yr old the only gripe if any is the finger stalls are abit larger than expected even for me. Finger stalls are similar to the Pro Prefered. Bfore you say well it is a 12 3/4 i've tried and purchased other 12 3/4 within the same brand and the gloves fit more snug. With that said a very nice glove he can grow with.

Pros: I love this glove. It breaks in beautifully with very little effort. It feels as if it were custom made for me. One reviewer was concerned about the glove lasting. This glove is made very well. I have no doubt it will last me a very long time. Another reviewer mentioned the large finger stalls. I don't have a problem here either. I prefer to wear a batting glove while in the field. The finger stalls accommodate the batting glove nicely.

Cons: It's not the lightest glove, but the weight has never affected me adversely.

would this glove be a good gift for a picky outfielder??
Yes, this is a great glove for an outfielder
most of the HOH are made for hardball can this be used for grisl/womens fastpitch especially OF
top recruit
The biggest difference with fastpitch gloves is the finger slots are smaller for female hands. This is a baseball glove, but the pocket would easily be broken in to a softball. If you don't mind the bigger finger slots, it could work well.
Is this model Dual Core?
Trout 27
No. The Rawlings Heart of the Hide Series: PROTB24B does not feature the Dual Core Technology.
Does this glove have a longer break in than the A2000 or less?
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide Series will be significantly easier to break in.
What is the difference between the HOH PROTB24B and the PROTB24?
The Rawlings Heart of the Hide Series: PROTB24B is the newer version of the PROTB24. It will have a little more padding that the PROTB24 but it uses the same quality of leather.

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.
