Description

expand_more

When it hit the market in 2001, the Rawlings Pro Preferred Series provided an industry-first design with its Kipskin Leather construction. Ever since, it has been a staple for many of baseball's elite players. Each Pro Preferred glove begins with the selection of the high-quality Kip Leather. This leather is only picked from hides weighing 30 pounds or less, giving the end product a lighter feel than a similar design made of Steerhide. Pro Preferred leather features a tight grain structure which leads to a supple feel, exceptional durability, and custom break-in for the player. Every inch of the Pro Preferred Series exudes a premium quality. Rawlings requires the laces in each glove to reach 100 lbs tensile strength in testing; where strength is needed most. Each model is also exceptionally comfortable with its Pittards Performance Sheepskin Palm Lining, new Deertouch Finger Back Lining, and the 100% wool padding to ensure a premium fit.

This 2016 Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROS314-2CB features an 11.50 Inch Pattern, I-Web, and is ideal for an elite infielder. Pick yours up today with our Fast, Free Shipping and 100 Day Money-Back Guarantee!

add_circle_outlinePros: First of all the "Narrow Fit" is NOT like the DP15 Wilson models. The DP has a VERY narrow wrist opening and VERY tight finger stalls. The Rawlings wrist opening is set on the smaller setting. If you know how to re-lace the opening (very easy) you can change it back to a standard as the finger stalls are not "narrow" and fits like a standard Rawlings. The heel padding is SUPER thin, almost non existent (Which I love), which also makes the REALLY easy to break in. (Compared to other KIP leather gloves) Its a shallow and wide glove similar to the Wilson 1786 A2K. But its ok because I prefer the Kip over the A2K prostock leather. Dual rolled welting I wear a size M in batting gloves, and I can get my wrist in up to my thumb knuckle and get TIP easy. This is glove is also a little lighter due to the lack of padding. Im really digging the 31 pattern put out by Rawlings. Something new and different for Rawlings, but a little copy of Wilson.

remove_circle_outlineCons: Lack of padding might bug some people if you prefer thick padding. You can feel the sting more than a regular 200 or NP pattern. (If you miscatch) I personally like the thin padding and heel.

Have a question about the Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROS314-2CB? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

(1) Is the Narrow Fit on Rawlings gloves the equivalent to the Pedroia Fit on the A2000s? (2) Would this glove be good for an 11 year old?
Michael
(1) There will be some Heart of the Hide mitts and Pro Preferred mitts available from Rawlings that feature the Narrow Fit design for a player needing a little tighter fit to their hand. As well, I would compare that Narrow Fit design to the Pedroia fit being offered by Wilson on some of their gloves. (2) This 2016 Rawlings Pro Preferred Series (PROS314-2CB) may not be a perfect fit for your player at 11 years old (may leave some growing room), but it should be something into which your player can grow in a short amount of time
Ben
Are there any difference between this glove and their wing tip glove?
Danger25
No the only real difference between the 2016 Rawlings Pro Preferred Series (PROS314-2CB) and the Wing Tip glove is that the Wing Tip might be a little bit easier to break in. But the difference is going to be negligible besides the appearance.
Carter
Would this be one of the lighter rawlings infield models? I find the JJ Hardy model a bit heavy and am looking for a glove thats a bit lighter.
AP9
Both of the gloves are the pro preferred leather from Rawlings so not much about these gloves will be different except for the different web and different color schemes. The weight of the gloves will be roughly the same.
Cade
What size is this glove?
kingjo
This Rawlings Pro Preferred Series (PROS314-2CB) features an 11.5" length to it.
Ben
In the 31 pattern is there no padding at all or very minimal padding?
ChatinToTo
Rawlings will not adjust the overall padding on the Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROS314-2CB since it is a 31 pattern (designed to open wider and offering a larger pocket) with regards to the pocket of the glove. With the 31 Pattern Rawlings does utilize a thinner heel pad though.
Cameron
Does it run true to size or a little bigger or smaller?

About the Brand

expand_more

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 and the Official Basketball and Football for NCAA Championships.

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 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.
