Really a nice glove for the price! Brian Davis Coach

Pros: Paid for the initial break in from Just Gloves which saved me some time. The glove only took a few sessions for my 12 year old to get into working order. I was really surprised about how well this glove was made, from the materials to the workmanship. Dont let the price fool you, this glove will last several seasons of 40+ games a summer. Would absolutely recommend this glove

Cons: I could live without the silver banding but it still is a sharp glove

Fits small hands …… EJD II Other

Pros: Great glove for small hands . It will work great with 12u and even 13u with small hands . It will work until there hands reach the pro preferred models by Rawlings .

Cons: Haven’t found any , The player loves it …. We only need it for one maybe two seasons. Maybe a R9 33 inch youth taper would be nice instead of just the 32 inch.

Garrett’s glove Bill Polzin Coach

Pros: Garrett likes his new catchers glove. Fits his hand great for 8u catcher.

Cons: We’re still breaking it some more. He wants it to be like my Wilson 2404 catcher’s mitt that’s that’s 50 years old.

Game Changer! Parent

Pros: I have an 11U player with small hands and struggled to find something that would fit him correctly so I did some research and came across the Rawlings R9. We did the glove prep service (which I would highly recommend) and used it at 1 practice before gameday. All I can say is that it was a night and day difference watching him behind the plate. He was picking everything and didn't have 1 ball pop out of his glove due to the great fit and pocket created from the prep service. It was incredible feeling watching his confidence grow with each pitch! Definitely recommend for anyone struggling to find a great fit for players with smaller hands.

Cons: None

R9 contour Catchers mitt Coach Steve Coach

Pros: Great glove for the price. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything better for a youth age 7 up to 13-year-olds. This glove is 90% ready from the factory. After two weeks of minimal breaking in it was game ready. Just oil it and use it. Nice deep pocket for a smaller glove. Had to loosen up the ling a little bit, but no problems at all. I also have the raconteur first baseman’s mitt and two fielders mitts for my children.

Cons: It would be nice if this catcher had a brighter border around the outside to give the pitcher better visibility, But other than That it is a great glove and no complaints!

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'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.
