How stiff is this glove out of the box?
The Rawlings Pro Preferred Series Adrian Gonzalez Game Day Glove: PROSFM20C First Base Mitt will be quite stiff on arrival, which allows for the player to break-in the glove exactly to their liking.
Does this glove play bigger than actually measured or does it play true to size?
The Rawlings Pro Preferred Series Adrian Gonzalez Game Day Glove: PROSFM20C First Base Mitt will be true to size, but depending on the shape of the break in could play larger.
How long will it take a 12 year old to break in this glove (assuming that we get is steamed first)?
I would imagine that this 2016 Rawlings Pro Preferred Series Adrian Gonzalez Game Day Glove (PROSFM20C First Base Mitt) will take a few weeks at a minimum to break in and get ready for game use. More realistically though, it will probably take a-couple-to-a-few months to get it exactly how you like it. Also, I would recommend avoiding the steamers with this mitt. They do soften the leather, but once the moisture evaporates out of the glove, the leather will dry out and start to show some signs of cracking/distress. The best way to break-in a glove is with extensive use and a little glove oil when the leather starts to show some dryness.
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 Adrian Gonzalez Game Day Glove: PROSFM20C First Base Mitt is the game-day design of Adrian Gonzalez and features a 12.25 Inch Pattern, H-Web, and Double Heel Break Design. Pick yours up today with our Fast, Free Shipping and 100 Day Money-Back Guarantee!
