What customers say about "Key Specs"
Rawlings Heart of The Hide Series Glove
  • This has been a great glove so far and would highly recommend it. I let it break in with use instead of steaming or creams.
  • Excellent product. Fits me like it was custom made. Reasonable break-in period.
  • Great glove though it is a little on the expensive side. My 14 year old loves his new glove.
  • Excellent glove, the quality is fantastic. Definitely will take time to break in.
  • As per my 17 yr old .. good fit and easy to break in. Very happy with purchase
Wilson A2000 Baseball Glove Series
  • Beautiful glove. 11yrs old son uses glove at 3rd base. I broke the glove in about 2 weeks with Wilson leather oil and a glove mallet.
  • Got this for my 13U who has had opportunities to catch upper 80's on a regular basis. Last glove was the fantastic A1k.
  • This glove immediately caught my eye with the black and yellow color pattern (Pittsburgh Fan). I tried one on first at a local sporting goods store and loved the short finger stalls, which is worked well for my fat short fingers.
  • All my son wanted for this birthday this year was an A2000. It did not disappoint. It's pretty stiff when it arrives but we also purchased a hot kit and that helped break it in fast. Exceptional quality and a perfect fit for my 9 year old.
  • Excellent glove. It is breaking in very quickly. It is for a 11 yr old and it is working very well. So much better quality than the gloves we saw in local stores.

What customers say about "Features"
Rawlings Heart of The Hide Series Glove
  • Very nice glove for the price. The dual core did break in much easier than typical Heart of the Hide models.
  • Сlassic style goes with any uniform. Quality leather throughout. Should last for many seasons.
  • This glove fit the bill. A little stiff at first but breaks in nicely because of the high quality materials.
  • High quality glove. Still in process of breaking it in. FYI - any Rawlings Heart of the Hide glove will take a longer time to break in.
  • The glove is super thin in the palm area, i have another hide of the hide and this is not normal. it's a shame,
Wilson A2000 Baseball Glove Series
  • The wrist strap needed adjustment but otherwise this fit's literally like a glove on my XL size hand.
  • The pocket forms nicely, the lacing and inside palm of the glove are very high quality and hold together nicely even during the rather violent break-in of the glove when you are using a mallet and working the pocket
  • The snap of a hard throw hitting the pocket of this glove is enough to make a game of catch a nightly occurrence. Performs well in games too! Huzzah!
  • Very durable, quality material. Strung well. A little tough to break in, but what you would expect for a quality glove from a reputable maker like Wilson.
  • Great glove! If you’re shopping these gloves you know to expect. They won’t disappoint quality construction and materials.
