Bettinardi x Rawlings Collection will be available online at www.bettinardi.com beginning on October 12th.
Tinley Park, IL- In conjunction with Rawlings, the official glove of Major League Baseball, Bettinardi Golf is introducing an extraordinary crossover between two iconic sports brands. This game-changing collaboration will combine Bettinardi’s precision craftsmanship with the rich heritage of Rawlings baseball gloves. The assortment will feature a wide range of products that will launch online including putters, headcovers, apparel, and other premium accessories.
Bettinardi brand ambassador and Rawlings Gold Glove® Award winner, Ian Happ, was especially excited about Bettinardi’s Gold Glove Woodset designed exclusively for the collaboration. “If you’re gonna go to the course and rock that, you’re turnin’ some heads,” Happ said motioning to the limited wood set.
As a leader in the world of golf, Bettinardi is known for collaborating with world-famous brands across exhilarating industries. “When Ian brought up the idea of a collaboration with Rawlings my heart started racing,” said Sam Bettinardi, President of Bettinardi Golf. “I thought how incredible it would be to use the same leather and lace they use on their gloves and use it to make headcovers, and the finished product is even better than I imagined.”
“Our high-quality glove leather has been a hallmark of the Rawlings brand and has helped elevate the careers of countless athletes since our inception in 1887,” said Mike Thompson, Chief Marketing Officer of Rawlings. “Given that many baseball players and fans also enjoy playing golf, our collaboration with Bettinardi seemed like a perfect opportunity to extend our brand to a new industry.”
This limited-edition Bettinardi x Rawlings collaboration will be launched on Thursday, October 12th at 10 a.m. CDT. The launch will take place in Bettinardi’s Hive at www.bettinardi.com, and available at select Bettinardi Specialty Dealers worldwide.
