Anybody else wake up with a little extra pep in their step today?
Here’s a surprise, especially with our recent sighting of Josh Donaldson leaving Rawlings and breaking in a Mizuno glove. Marucci, not Mizuno, has won Donaldson’s heart after a long relationship with Rawlings. The Bringer of Rain will don a Marucci glove in 2018, and this is your first look at the leather (above).
The glove is an absolute beaut. Here are the specs:
- 11.75” I-Web with Japanese Kip leather shell
- Founders’ Series I-Web pattern and padding construction
- Modified Donaldson requested pinky pattern shape for a more comfortable two-finger shift
As you know if you have seen our YouTube channel (more clubhouse vids on the way), JD likes his I-Webs:
In Donaldson’s new Marucci glove, you’ll notice the three laces instead of two on the web. This is the only difference between Donaldson’s glove and the glove that you can build on Marucci’s custom glove builder. JD probably liked that feature in Mizuno’s gloves and requested it from Marucci. You won’t see that in Marucci’s offerings, though—that’s player exclusive.
