Offense may win games, but it's defense that wins the Rawlings Gold Glove Award.
Rawlings has partnered with Ripken Baseball to produce a line of fielding tools for its 5-Tool Training Program that will develop hand-eye coordination, reflexes and soft hands.
Every 5-Tool Training product includes drills and instructions to help you improve your baseball performance. Popular fielding tools include:
• The 5-Tool Quik Hands Glove, a foam trainer that is contoured to fit your palm and can be used during practice to teach soft hands. Learn to transition the ball from glove to throwing hand quickly and smoothly. To order at RawlingsGear.com, look for style number QUIKHANDS.
• The 5-Tool Pro Trainer Glove, an undersized 9.5” Pro Preferred leather glove. This Rawlings glove demands that you keep your eyes on the ball all the way into the glove. It forces you to stay down on ground balls with both your head and hands and also to move your feet. It encourages soft hands and will immediately begin to eliminate bad habits. To order at Rawlings Gear, look for style number PROTRAIN.
• The 5-Tool Reactball, a fielding trainer that is designed to take erratic hops to improve your reflexes and fielding ability. The Reactball should only be used as a ground ball training tool on a gym floor or outside on a field. The ball bounces erratically, which will help you practice staying in front of the ball. To order at Rawlings Gear, look for style number REACTBALL.
• The 5-Tool Pitching Machine Training Baseball, which can be used in pitching machines. These training baseballs look and feel like real baseballs. The 5-Tool Pitching Machine Training Baseball has a full-grain leather cover with a wound cork and rubber center. This center, along with Kevlar stitched seams, gives these training baseballs incredible durability. To purchase individually or in dozens at Rawlings Gear, look for style number 5TROTBPM.
