Within the different series in the Rawlings first base glove line, the same general shape stays true. If it works for one model, why wouldn't it for another? The differences in the gloves lies in the different leathers that Rawlings uses for their gloves. For example in the Heart of the Hide series, Rawlings uses a combination of the top 5% of leather to produce an astounding steerhide leather. This leather is extremely durable and will last players a long time. The Pro Preferred series uses full grain kip leather. The great thing about kip leather is that is is both lightweight and durable. So, players will be able to easily pick the ball out of the dirt on those bad throws to first.

How do you Tighten a Rawlings First Base Mitt?

There are many spots on a first base mitt that allow you to tighten the glove.  If you are trying to reduce the wrist opening for smaller hands, there is an adjustment you can make by pulling the lace out of the wrist strap holes and relacing it through the other holes on the wrist strap.  

To tighten the web or the spaces between the fingers, you will need to follow the lace and determine the part of the lace that can tighten the area in question.  With a little bit of pulling on the loose part you usually can determine where you need to pull and retie in order to tighten the loosened area.  If you don't trust yourself, you can always bring your glove to a glove re-lacer, or even a local shoe repair company, and they should be able to help you out.
