Pros: If you like kip leather gloves, there's nothing out there better than the ProPreferred. Leather does not crack contrary to what some people say.

Cons: Takes a little longer to break in but once you do, you will love it.

Pros: I have always used rawlings gloves and just love them. My old glove was a heart of the hide and I thought that was the best glove ever until I bought this Pro Preferred glove and it is the best glove I have ever used hands down. Great leather, great feel, great control. Takes a while to break in but it is well worth it

Cons: none

Pros: SUPERB GLOVE! Outstanding leather, excellent stiffness and a well formed pocket. This is a high end glove for better players. Those that said the glove took a long time to break in are correct--BUT, it's supposed to take a top-of-the-line glove a long time to break in. That's what makes it a great glove since it will perform at peak levels for a long period of time. If you are a high end player and looking for a high end glove, this is an outstanding option.

Pros: I just got my glove yesterday. This is the finest piece of leather you will ever put on your hand. I play everyday for my travel team and I'm confident this is gonna do me well.

Cons: Extremely stiff. It's all you to break it in. That's a pro for me but some people don't like that.

Pros: Great glove. Great looks, feel, and shape. Lightweight and easily shapeable to your hand. Just the right amount of stiffness without getting floppy. Quite a lot shorter break-in time, which is not usually what I like, but has held its shape perfectly once I reached my desired feel. My HOH PRO200-1 is taking much longer to break in, but the PROS15ICB feels much better on the hand when fielding. Perfect middle infield glove. As with all nicer gloves, keep it out of your car and out of your bag - keep it in your hands or in your room.

Cons: Shorter break-in period (con for some)

Pros: For 11.5's, I have used Rawlings Gold Glove, HOH and Preferred Pro, Wilson A2000, Mizuno Pro and Reebok VRPro. Without question, the Preferred Pro is the best, hands down. If you thought HOH was great, the Preferred Pro is even better. The quality of leather and fit are second to none. It truly forms to your hand while the HOH does not. I had adjusted the wrist strap to make it a little tighter (as I did with my A2000) as I have a smaller hand and wrist and it's fantastic.

Cons: Stiffer than any other glove I've purchased and broken in but this in indicative of the quality and fit of the glove. Make no mistake, once broken in, nothing beats it.

Pros: Bought the glove for my 11 yr old the other day. Leather is very nice, glove is well made, as it should be for 309.00. However, I feel there are gloves significantly cheaper that are of equal quality. You are paying for the name.

Cons: The glove is stiff as a board, Which I kind of expected and I would be suprised if I could get it game ready for next season.

I need a new glove for a 50 and over softball league and I play infield and I really do not have the time to break one in . Do you have any sugesstions on which glove to buy
This is going to be a pretty high quality glove and it will take a considerable amount of time to break in. You may even want to look at a 12 inch glove if you're playing infield on a slowpitch softball team. If you want a glove that's easy to break in, I would look at gloves priced around $80 or lower.
what glove would be better for third baseman the PROS15ICB or the PROS17ICBR?
If you prefer a black glove then the PROS15ICB will be better. If you prefer a brown glove then the PROS17ICBR will be better. In terms of structure and performance, both will be the same, and it's just a matter of your personal preference in color.
this or a a2k
Both gloves are great the main difference between the two is that the Pro Preferred uses a kip leather and the a2k series uses a pro stock leather
whats an ID number
The ID number will be PROS15ICB on this glove.
I like the PROS151CB but the 111/2 size looks small for an adult infielder. Should I go with a bigger size? Thanks for your input.
Most infielders use 11.00-11.50 inch gloves. This glove would be great to use in the infield. I would not go much bigger than a 11.50 inch glove for the infield.
Hey. Ive bought several gloves over the years. All of them are in the Rawlings Gold Glove series. I have been considering lately buying a Pro Preferred or Heart of the Hide model, but I wanted to know if there is a significant benefit achived from buying a higher priced glove. The Gold Glove series runs in the $99-$130 range and I've always thought that that was ok for a glove. I've started playing more, though, and see the Pro Preferred's and Heart of the Hides more and more. Should I upgrade to one of the more expensive models? If so why and which one? I play 2B and some OF. I've also wanted to get a new catcher's mitt for playing catch with my 12 year-old son. I know he'll be throwing a lot of balls for a few more years, so as far as Rwlings gloves go, which is the best for longevity, quality, and price? Thanks for any help you guys can offer!
When it comes to gloves, you really get what you pay for. Higher price gloves are constructed with higher quality leather. Higher quality leather is stiffer, more durable, and a little tougher to break in compared to lower price gloves. Gloves that are easier to break in will be constructed with softer leather and are typically sold at a lower price. After you narrow down your size and price range, the rest (speaking truthfully) comes down to your own personal preference (ie: webbing, style, back, color, etc.) As far as catcher's mitts, the highest quality currently in Rawlings' line is the Pro Preferred PROSCM33-125.
Can I get this model in a left-hander's glove?
We are currently out of stock in the left hand thrower. We receive inventory on a regular basis. As soon as the item is received in our warehouse we will update our website.
Would this glove be okay for third or should I get the 11.75?
Both the 11.50" and 11.75" sizes would work for third base.
Nick K.
How does this glove compare to the Mizuno GMP63?
The Rawlings Pro Preferred Series is made of kip leather. The Mizuno GMP6 is made of Deguchi leather. The Rawlings Pro Preferred Series will be a little softer.
How is the Rawlings Pro Preferred Series better than the Wilson A2000 and Wilson A2K? Whats the difference?
The Rawlings Pro Preferred Series would be more comparable to the Wilson A2K Series in terms of quality of leather and the durability of leather. Both gloves will use some of the most premium leather on the market.
Do you still make the I-web in the brown or light tan color?
poppa boone
Rawlings does manufacture the Pro Preferred in an I-web in that color. Here is a link to take a look.
Does this 11.5" model have a deep or shallow pocket?
The Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROS15ICB glove will have an average pocket depth for this 11.50" model. The Kip Leather on this glove will make it softer and easier to break-in. Plus, you'll still get the great strength and durability that the Rawlings Pro Preferred Series are known for.
Can outfielders use this glove?
That depends on the age of the player. I recommend our Glove Coach. It's a great tool:
Will this model come with "The Gold Glove Co" Stitched onto the pinkie finger outside of the glove rather than having it stitched with "Pro Preferred Leather" stitched in that spot?
We haven't heard that Rawlings is going to do anything like that.
is there any difference besides color and size between these gloves and this one: PROS12ICBR, PROS200-2MO, PROS88MO? thanks
The differences you mentioned are the only differences between the three.
How much does this glove weigh?
We do not have the actual weight of any of our gloves, but it is going to feel a little lighter than a Heart of the Hide or an A2000 would.
Does this glove have the same type of leather as the Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROS200-6MO?
The Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROS15ICB and the Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROS200-6MO use kip leather. It is very high quality leather and will be very durable.

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.
