This post serves as a guide to the Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K, including a detailed look at its huge pattern, who wears this glove, and more pertinent information you must know about before buying.
The Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K is a huge Glove
Although most third basemen’s gloves are 11.75” or 12”, the Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K is a larger 12.25” option for the hot corner.
Combined with that longer length is a web that has much popularity among MLB and recreational third basemen alike: the H-web. In conjunction with the length, the H-web gives the PRO200-6K a super deep pocket.

Due to the deep pocket and extra length, you will be able to both securely catch easily groundballs and field some extra groundballs you would not be able to get with a smaller or shallower glove.
And as it is the only 12.25” infield glove currently offered from both Rawlings and Wilson, it is the best (and only) option for third basemen looking for a longer and deeper glove for the hot corner.
There are few nicer-looking Gloves
Although there are many other gorgeous blonde/camel-based stock gloves on the market, none are as nice as the Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K.
With a simple camel base with dark tan lacing and blue embroidery, the design of the PRO200-6K is simply one of the cleanest designs in the industry.

Although the camel design looks beautiful new, using this glove for a period of time reveals the stunning look of worn camel leather.
Of Course, it has Top-Notch Materials
As part of Rawlings’ Pro Preferred line of gloves, it was basically a given that the Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K would have top-notch materials and excellent durability.
The glove’s durability starts with its Kip leather, a material known for its lighter weight (it weighs less than steerhide), buttery-smooth feel, and outstanding long-term durability. Kip is generally considered the best baseball glove leather.
Combining that superb leather with Rawlings’ top-notch lacing and thick padding/inserts nets you a glove that may very well be one of the highest quality gloves on the market.
Oh, and do not forget about the PRO200-6K’s liner and finger backs, which are easily the softest-feeling materials any glove features on the inside of their glove. Put simply, you will not want to remove your hand from the pillow-soft hand stalls.
Side Note: It is the Kris Bryant Game Model
When going down the list of all of the features of the Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K, it is no surprise that the creator of this magnificent glove was Kris Bryant, one of the top third basemen in the MLB.

Armed with this knowledge, the reasoning for many of the glove’s features makes sense – Bryant 6’5”, 230-pound frame allows him to easily control a larger glove, the simple yet beautiful colorway complements Bryant’s sneaky style, and the choice to go Pro Preferred follows Bryant’s desire for top quality equipment.
After examining all of the features of the Rawlings Pro Preferred PRO200-6K, it can be concluded that it is the top option for third basemen looking for something with a longer length and deeper pocket for the hot corner.
However, its $360 price tag means you will pay for the PRO200-6K’s amazing quality and durability.
But, it is a logical investment when considering the fact that it combines amazing durability with a perfect pattern and gorgeous colorway.
