Catch baseball fever with a custom Made-in-USA Rawlings glove

Posted by scapozzola on 03/30/2011

Major League Baseball’s 2011 season starts this Thursday, March 31.  We thought we’d take a look at the All-American pastime, which still features some Made-in-USA sports gear.

Rawlings has been making baseball gloves since 1887.  Despite diversifying overseas, Rawlings' pro model and custom gloves are still made in Washington, Missouri. 

You can do what the pros do and have your glove tailor-made to your exact specifications at Rawlings' Missouri factory.

Whether its playing catch at

Whether its playing catch at home, or practising pitching drills in the field, I like to have a good glove that is comfortable. Though I have never used Rawlings gloves before, I would not mind trying if the reviews for it are good.

Only gloves ordered through Eastbay.com are manufactured by the team at he Rawlings St. Louis Custom Shop. Call Bob Clevenhagen there if you would like to confirm. A glove ordered from the website above will be made in the Phillipines.
