Judge’s ALL RISE Foundation, Rawlings Introduce Glove Series

The Aaron Judge ALL RISE Foundation and Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, Inc., have announced a new glove series: The Foundation. This series is now available exclusively on and

The Foundation series features high-quality, all leather baseball patterns designed for competitive youth players. New York Yankees Captain and American League MVP Aaron Judge, who has used a Rawlings glove throughout his entire amateur and pro career, worked alongside Rawlings as they designed The Foundation for this inaugural series. Judge grew up in this area; he graduated from Linden High School.

For every glove purchased from The Foundation series, the Aaron Judge ALL RISE Foundation and Rawlings will donate a glove to an underprivileged youth baseball or softball player. Their aim is to make equipment more accessible to kids, regardless of income status or social barriers, and inspire youth to learn more about citizenship and community through sports.

During the planning stages Aaron Judge stated, “The ALL RISE Foundation was started by my mom and me to inspire the next generation to be great citizens. The ALL RISE mission is to inspire children and youth to become responsible citizens by engaging them in activities that encourage them to reach unlimited possibilities. When you buy The Foundation glove, you’ll also be giving one to a kid in the inner city to hopefully inspire them to become the next great baseball or softball player. This collaboration speaks directly to our mission.”

The first of The Foundation series will feature five different glove models: an 11.5 inch infield glove, two 12 inch utility gloves, a catcher’s mitt, and a first baseman’s mitt. The Foundation series gloves are available on Amazon via an exclusive retail collaboration, and Rawlings will also sell the gloves on their website. The ALL RISE Foundation and Rawlings are also planning for future product launches to grow the series.

“We’re thrilled to be launching this initiative to grow the game, and we can’t think of anyone better to partner with than Aaron and the ALL RISE Foundation,” said Rawlings Chief Marketing Officer Mike Thompson. “His dedication to growing the game and serving his community reflects the values we hold as an organization as well.”

The Aaron Judge ALL RISE Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, which was launched in 2018. The organization serves youths who will benefit from a focus to inspire, engage, and encourage. ALL RISE strives to take advantage of every opportunity to make a difference. For further information, visit
