The 3x All-Star shortstop, Xander Bogaerts, uses a Rawlings Heart of the Hide PROSNP4 glove. Mostly known for his bat, Bogaerts has been working hard to improve his defensive play. What better way to do that than by choosing one of the most reliable brands of baseball gloves on the market.
His 11.5″ Rawlings glove features a Pro I web, Heart of the Hide leather, an index pad, palm pad, and full heel pad. The gray back, navy web and palm, mint welting on the back, and optic yellow on the palm create a really clean look. He also has his name embroidered on the thumb in script font.
Bogaerts’ glove has an exclusive trim style that gives the back of the fingers a two-tone look. We were able to create his glove using the Rawlings custom builder but weren’t able to get the exact trim style pictured above. For $400, you can rock the same NP4 pattern as the X-Man, but not his exact model. Check out the glove or make your own using the link.
