Trash can jokes aside, Carlos Correa is an absolute baller. He won the Platinum Glove Award in 2021, given to the best defender in the American League. The award is determined by a combination of fan vote and sabermetric measurement, so it means a lot to every player who’s earned it. It meant so much to Correa that he left his long-time favorite Wilson behind so that he could rep the PLATS on-field. He’s wearing a Rawlings Pro Preferred PROS315-19KC single post with dual welting and his son’s name on the thumb. Correa’s glove is an absolute beauty with its trim matching the platinum labels.
The model itself is 11 3/4″ inches, and even carries the same laced single post over from his Wilson days. You can get his exact pattern, but without the platinum labels, at Rawlings.com for $530. Go for Heart of the Hide leather to knock the price down to $400.
Here’s Carlos discussing his Wilson back in 2017.
