For decades, the Heart of the Hide Gloves have earned a reputation for top-of-the-line Fielding Gloves. After a rigorous selection process, a mere 5% of the hides are deemed worthy to become a Heart of the Hide Glove – and you can feel that. The Gloves deliver high-end quality for the demanding player that values a quality feel and craftsmanship. The only downside of these great Gloves was the extended break-in that the player had to go through to get these Gloves game-ready. This changes with the new HOH R2G Series – 25% more factory break-in help to get the Gloves game-ready faster without cutting back on the leather quality. The Rawlings PROR314-2NG R2G offers an 11 1/2" length making it a quality partner for the fast play between the bases. A shallow Pro I-Web supports a quick glove-to-hand transfer and delivers a flexible pocket. An open back supplies a relaxed fit on the hand with maximum range of motion. The Heart of the Hide Gloves feature a padded thumb loop for added comfort. The PROR314-2NG also features a “narrow fit pattern”, slightly reducing the diameter of the hand opening to provide a snug fit on the wrist.
