Constructed with USA Horween leather and Rawlings-patented Dual Core Technology, the Heart of the Hide Dual Core fielder’s gloves are designed with position-specific break points in the glove pattern so players can achieve top-level performance customized for their defensive needs. These break points enable the glove to close naturally and easily depending on the needs of the position. Additionally, these gloves are specially-tanned for a softer feel, allowing for less break-in time. The world-renowned Rawlings Heart of the Hide series originated in 1958 and still represents one of the finest glove lines in baseball today.
Heart of the Hide steer hide leather tends to be the prime cut or center portion of the smaller hide and is usually thicker than other leathers. The leather from the center area of the hide typically has less stretch, resulting in a firm glove that’s easier to shape. This top grade leather will allow the glove to mold to the players hand for a proper feel and still maintain the durability needed to play at the highest level. Handcrafted from the top 5% of steer hides, this leather has made the Heart of the Hide Series the most sought after gloves in the market.
