The Rawlings Heart of the Hide Yadier Molina Catcher's Glove is the glove of a winner. It is a replica designed to the specifications of Major League Baseball catcher and 2011 Gold Glove awardee Yadier Molina's Game Day mitt. The mitt is the largest one made by Rawlings at 34" and features a One Piece Closed Web design for strength, durability and control. The Pro Mesh material and the Heart of the Hide leather makes the glove lighter than comparable mitts without losing durability or performance. Soft leather finger-back lining adds comfort. 1-Piece Closed Web • The one-piece closed web in this large glove forms a deep pocket, which helps catchers control the ball and scoop pitches out of the dirt. It also makes the glove strong and durable. Tennessee Tanning Company Pro Lace • Tennessee Tanning Company, exclusive to Rawlings mitts, makes them with high-quality pro lace that MLB players rely on. Wide Opening • There is a wide opening above the wrist for comfort and control. 40% Player Break-In • There is a 60% factory break-in, easing the burden and leaving the rest to the player to perfect the shape and feel of the mitt. Lining and Shell • The glove is lined with deer-tanned cowhide, a high-end tannage that leaves the cowhide feeling soft like deer skin. The leather is particularly soft around the fingers. The Heart of the Hide leather shell with Pro Mesh make the glove 15% lighter on average, but remain durable and strong.
