The Rawlings R9 Pro taper 12-inch left-handed Baseball glove features a durable all-leather shell designed to be game-ready. With an 80% factory break-in, the mitt is ready to use right away, rather than having to spend weeks shaping and molding the pocket. Its Pro taper includes a smaller hand opening and lowered finger stall, ideal for growing hands. Pro-style patterns and a reinforced palm pad absorb impact, while a padded thumb sleeve and finger-back liners give added comfort and protection. The R9 has the look, feel, and quality you'd expect from a Rawlings glove, with an accelerated break-in period to get you on the field faster.
