A while back Rawlings discontinued the use of Horween leather on their stock mitts. And while they have yet to have more than a limited comeback , more and more Horween gloves are available today than in the past few years.
This post will serve as the complete guide to any Rawlings Horween gloves that hit the marketplace. Releases may be few and far between, but this post will remained updated throughout the years.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO6HF-1HT
It’s been a while since the Cal Ripken model has been on the market. It’s 12″, has a single post, a Fastback shell, and of course, Horween leather.
And while it’s not the greatest mitt on use on the diamond anymore, it’s the perfect glove for collectors who wish to have a glove that you probably won’t ever see used in the MLB again.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRODJ2HT
Not the greatest image above, but this glove doesn’t need a big introduction. 11.5″. Basket Web. Derek Jeter’s game model in tan Horween leather.
Again, not the greatest glove to use in the field today, but it’s definitely an awesome mitt for the collection.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO204-2HT
Now this is a definite gamer. 11.5″ I-web. Hand Sewn Welting. And, of course, Horween leather. If you’re a middle infielder looking for a top notch game glove, this is certainly it.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRODCTHT
Another super classic mitt. The DCT is a 13″ pattern and widely considered one of the best patterns for first base. This glove will be an absolute tank over at first.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO205-4HT
The PRO205-4HT is a sweet mitt for dual pitchers/middle infielders. At 11.75″ with a modified trapeze web and tan Horween leather, it will certainly be a gamer for many seasons.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PROCM33HT
Another tank of a mitt, this time for behind the dish. At 33″ with the Horween leather, the PROCM33HT is a top notch game glove for any catcher looking for a high quality mitt for behind the plate.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PROTB24HT
The TB24 is the Ken Griffey pattern, which is a 12.75″ pattern with a Fastback shell and trapeze web. This mitt is perfect for outfielders who’ve used a trapeze mitt before and need a new gamer.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO5048-6HT
While not a great baseball mitt, the 12.5″ PRO5048-6HT is perfect for slowpitch softball players. While the 504 is a funky pattern, it perfectly corrals a softball in both the infield and outfield.
