Rawlings Pro Preferred Leather—The Selective Choice
As a player advances into more competitive leagues, it becomes important to be selective about the leather used to build his glove.

Rawlings' Pro Preferred glove series is made with soft, durable kipskin leather for easy break-in.

Kipskin leather is clean, with few imperfections and a tight grain structure. The leather is supple, which allows each player to break in his Pro Preferred glove to his preference. This leather helps the glove keep its shape.

The tight grain on kipskin leather may take slightly longer to break in, but the end result is worth the work. Kip hide is found only in Rawlings Pro Preferred gloves.

Papmister of Providence, R.I., recently purchased a Pro Preferred 11.5 inch 2-Tone glove. In an online review at, he wrote: “When I play catch, the pop is quite amazing and it's just awesome to use. It retains its shape very well if broken in properly and has left me with no choice then to rate it five stars. I would recommend anybody to buy this.”

When shopping for a Pro Preferred glove, look for model numbers PROS27T2T, PROS27T2T-RH, PROS12MTKB, PROS12MTKB-RH, PROS20BR, PROS20BR-RH, PROS1175-9KB, PROS1175-9KB-RH, PROS17ICBR, PROS15ICB, PROS15MTBR, PROS15MTBR-RH, PROS12IC2T, PROSDCT2T, PROSDCT2T-RH, and PROSCM20BR
