Rawlings created the 2022 11.25 inch HOH R2G ContoUR fit infield glove after extensive research and testing. They wanted to offer a pro-level glove that worked perfectly for players with smaller hands. This HOH R2G ContoUR glove was meticulously crafted from the ultra-premium steerhide leather the Heart of the Hide gloves are renowned for. As a result, you get a glove with unmatched quality and performance, and a better fit too!
We also re-engineered their popular 31-pattern with the ContoUR fit to offer slimmer, lowered finger stalls and a tighter hand opening. It even has an adjustable, pull-lace wrist system which promotes a more custom fit as well! In addition to the tailored fit, we’ve pulled down the back shell of the glove to make the back of the glove more accessible. All of this combines together to provide a better fit & greater glove control for those athletes with smaller hands.
Like every R2G glove, this Heart of the Hide infield glove features 25% more factory break-in for a game-ready feel straight out of the box. It’s ready to go, so you’ll be able to rip off the tags and go straight to the field.

Nothing beats the feeling of a well-conditioned glove!
Over the years, we have perfected the process of optimizing equipment. There is no guesswork with our Baseball Glove Conditioning. We have the entire process down to a science.
Our Glove Conditioning: 1-2-3 Perfection!
Step 1: The right tool for the job: We have 6 different glove shaping mallets in our shop as every glove needs something different, and your glove is no unique so it gets special treatment as well. We use each specially designed mallet to either break down each glove at its specific flex points, form a pocket or help break in the palm with a weighted head. This specific working of the leather increases the effectiveness of the manual labor process. Since every glove is built differently, this is where our knowledge and experience comes into play. The forming of the leather on the these proper crease points while holding the integrity of the rest of the glove is the key to success. This process is completed in 4-5 sessions over the next 2-3 days. Working the gloves by hand along with our conditioning is the key to proper break in.
Step 2: Hydrate the leather: We apply a small amount of specially formulated glove conditioner to the leather and laces, both inside and out. This conditioner will be absorbed by the glove’s pores which helps keep the glove in top condition all year. This extra conditioning step will help by keeping dirt and debris out of the newly stretched out leather pores. Hydrating the leather will also help the glove last longer as it will resist absorbing water which can lead to early dry rot.
Step 3: Proper form: To get the perfectly formed pocket, each glove has 100 weighted baseballs caught in the web helping form the pocket and laces. Once the glove has a nice pocket formed, we need to make sure the glove maintains it true form en route back to you. After the glove conditioning process is completed, we put a ball in each glove and wrap them up with rubber bands prior to shipping them back to you. This ensures the glove hold its form on its way back to you. We do these extra steps to ensure the full effects of our break in process.
