If not for two years of military service and four years at the University of Texas, baseball lifer Grady Hatton’s career as player, manager, scout, and front office executive would have surpassed a half century. Mainly a third baseman, he played in 12 big-league seasons (1946-56; 1960). Reflecting on his playing career in 1966, Hatton stated that scouts didn’t give him much chance to succeed. “I was an average ballplayer. I could do a lot of things pretty good, but wasn’t outstanding in any phase of the game.”
Draper and Maynard gloves have always been one of our favorites, and this Grady Hatton model does not disappoint. The lighter colored baseball stitching on the outside really stand out and as always, there is functionality abound on the inside as the wallet features four horizontal and four top load card cash pockets. Measuring 5.75” by 3.5”, this tall wallet is a great carry and will only get better with time and use.
