The Rawlings Heart of the Hide July 2023 Gold Glove Club July 2023 glove of the month is a highly coveted baseball glove that combines exceptional quality and craftsmanship with a unique design. This particular edition, known as the PRORA13S Baseball Glove, features the RA13 pattern, which is favored by the talented outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr.

This model is intended for Outfield baseball players. With a length of 12 3/4 inches, it is specifically designed to meet the needs of outfielders. The larger size provides a larger catching surface, allowing outfielders to make spectacular catches and cover more ground in the field.

The PRORA13S Scarlet Baseball Glove is constructed using Rawlings’ renowned Heart of the Hide leather, known for its durability, flexibility, and excellent performance. This high-quality leather ensures that the glove maintains its shape and withstands the rigors of the game, even after extensive use.

The glove also incorporates Rawlings’ Pro H™ web, which plays a crucial role in enhancing stability and glove control. The Pro H™ web design creates a deep pocket that helps secure the ball upon impact, preventing it from popping out and ensuring a secure catch. This feature is particularly beneficial for outfielders who frequently encounter high-velocity line drives and fly balls.

You can worry no more! At ProRollers, our goal is a simple one. We want your gear to be in PEAK CONDITION long before that critical first game. Our bat rolling  optimizes every hit you make and now our glove conditioning  makes that new glove feel just like an extension of your hand – like it’s been there for years. 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.
