After winning his first Gold Glove award in 2020, JP Crawford became the second shortstop in Mariner’s history to win the award. He was also signed to a 5-year contract at the beginning of the 2022 season. Needless to say, Crawford is killing it. His stellar defense and success at the plate has turned him into someone to keep an eye on.
This season, Crawford has been making web-gem plays with his 11.75″ Rawlings Pro Preferred PROPL217 glove. The camel color and back lacing combo isn’t the flashiest in the world, but it gets the job done. The coolest part about this glove is the “BBG” embroidered lettering on the thumb. “BBG” stands for BaseballGenerations, which is a foundation that aims to make baseball more accessible to all youth. JP Crawford is part of the BBG Foundation Team and continues to show his support for the organization. On the pinky, he has the initials “KC” in honor of his fiancé, Kathleen Carmona.
Although you won’t get Crawford’s specific model number, you can get the exact PRO217 pattern that he uses. We created the glove on the Rawlings customizer, but we were unable to get the gold and red Rawlings patches seen on Crawford’s. Minus the patch color, you can flash the exact same leather as the 2020 AL Gold Glove winner for $500 at Rawlings.com.
