Addison Russell’s Rawlings RGGNP5 Glove
Addison Russell has worn a PROS205 pattern in the past with Rawlings, but this year he’s got a glove with the most buttery leather imaginable, a Rawlings Gold Glove model. When WPW followed Rawlings around at Spring Training back in 2015, we picked one of these up and it felt like nothing we’d ever felt before. And every pro who touched it kept going back to it because of the feel. This glove is a total custom for Addison Russell only, but you can shop a number of RGG models here.
Like his previous glove, this is an 11.75″ pattern, specifically a RGGNP5. The NP5 is an enormously popular infield pattern, especially for third base and shortstop. You can’t get a few of the details like the hand sewn welt (see it on the thumb), or the red patch with a gold border on the custom builder, but you can get a nearly identical version at this link.
