Where to Find Rawlings Gloves:
Rawlings Baseball Bats
Rawlings baseball bats are available for every level of play from youth to college and the major leagues. For $30 you can find a basic aluminum rawlings baseball bat, or you can spend hundreds on a high end Scandium big stick model. Rawlings bats are increasing in popularity, although they are not nearly as widespread as Rawlings gloves. Rawlings "big stick" wooden bats are available for $30 to about $75 for the maple baseball bats.
Rawlings was founded in 1887 when George and Alfred Rawlings opened a retail sporting goods store in St. Louis.
In 1920, Rawlings introduced the Bill Doak glove which the company says became the prototype for all-purpose baseball gloves of the future.
The Rawlings gold glove award was established in 1957 to recognize fielding excellence.
In 1971 a new Rawlings baseball glove, named "Fastback" was introduced, with the major new feature being a closed back design.
Rawlings went public in 1994 and is now owned by K2 sports.
