The R9 series of baseball gloves from Rawlings are a soft, durable all-leather glove designed to be game ready. They are described as 80% factory break-in and the remaining 20% for the player. This series uses the regular Rawlings pro patterns and mostly standard fit. The only exception is two models, the 315-6BG and 314-2BG having a narrow fit. This series is not to be confused with the R9 Youth Pro Taper series from Rawlings. They use the same leather but have red stitching instead of gold and are designed for the youth fielder. The gloves also have reinforced palm pad for impact reduction, padded thumb loop for added comfort, and padded finger back liners for a soft, comfortable feel.
