Know what this is?
The glove Derek Jeter used in little league.
It’s the Derek Jeter model glove that my 8-year old has been nagging me about for a while now. We just started breaking it in for him. But, it’s the actual model that Jeter uses today. Once done, I suspect it will replace the Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO1175DC Model that he’s using now in his LL and travel leagues.
Here’s everything you ever wanted to know about it via Rawlings:
This Heart of the Hide Derek Jeter baseball glove from Rawlings Gear features the Basket Web pattern, which was the first flexible web that made the glove easier to squeeze. The glove was a collaborative effort between Rawlings and shortstop Derek Jeter. With its 11 1/2″ pattern, this glove is based on his performance needs at his position and reflects his personal preference in web style, break points, function, and fit. Jeter was particular about the break in process and feel of the glove which makes this glove perfect for middle infielders. Handcrafted from the top 5% of steer hides and the best pro grade lace, the Heart of the Hide gloves durability remain unmatched. Its Convention Back drives flexibility and strength. Same pattern worn by Derek Jeter and Stephen Drew.
BTW, Cano uses a Spalding Glove:
Is he the only big leaguer to do so?
Most use Rawlings, Wilson, Louisville Slugger or Mizuno, IIRC.
@ Steve L.:
I hope it doesn’t come with the following catchphrase: “Past a diving Lombardi.”
No. It comes with the guarantee that the father will say to the son, every time, without fail, “If the ball hits your glove, you’re supposed to catch it” every time he drops one. Luckily, I don’t have to say it too often these days.
@ Steve L.:
haha! That’s a good lesson. All the best to him.
