Rawlings softball gloves are a mainstay of Fastpitch. They have been designed with the female athlete in mind. They come in a variety of models, sizes, and, yes, colors.
At this point you should know what size you are looking for. If not, return to Softball Gloves so you know what size to look for. If you see the same softball glove, it is to offer a little comparative shopping options.
In each of the "stores" listed below, you will find a description of each glove. Not surprisingly, the more expensive gloves are of higher quality in terms of construction and material. Rawlings softball gloves can run anywhere from $40 upwards to $200+. If you buy a quality glove or mitt, you will have it for a number of seasons. Make a wise choice now and the glove will become a trusted friend. By all means, find the glove that fits your intended use, be it infield, outfield, behind the plate or at first base.
"Leftover" models are a great way to get a big discount on a perfectly good glove ... it just might be last year's model. There is nothing wrong with these gloves, just their shelf life was too long. Once they are in the field, no one looks at the "born on date" to determine how good it is. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen a date on a glove.
Also, make sure you break them in properly to maximize their useful life. This page provides a "how to" for breaking in a glove properly.
The first store contains Rawlings softball gloves from Amazon (where you will find many of these "leftovers" at deep discounts) and several online sports equipment stores. Except for the first page, the gloves are generally grouped by online store. If you don't find your model, use the search at the top of the section. It will scan all of Amazon's inventory to see if it has the glove/mitt for sale. You will find both the latest gloves and some leftovers.
The second store contains a set of retail stores where you can see a cross section of softball gloves from Rawlings. If you are still deciding on which Rawlings glove you want, this will give you a good idea of what is out there. If you see a glove you like, but not the size, click on the store name which will take you to their website. Here you can do a more thorough search to find your size. The gloves in this section are generally the latest from Rawlings. You should also find the same glove across several of the retailers to help you come up with best price.
If you are a coupon or deal shopper, you will now find the latest deals and coupons from our various partners. The coupons/deals are not specific to Rawlings softball gloves, but storewide.

One more thing, if you are indifferent as to brand, go to this page for a search on all fastpitch softball gloves. If your daughter plays first base or catches, plus plays other positions, you may want to buy both the mitt and a regular fielders glove. It is illegal to use a mitt at any other position than first or catching. You may also want to check with the coach to see if the team may have a first base or catcher's mitt if the player is just starting out. No need to invest until you are certain the player is committed to that position.
