A 26-foot mitt is a new feature in the Giants’ new Pacific Bell Park. The 20,000-pound mitt, built of fiberglass over a steel frame, is 36 times the size of the actual glove — a 1927 Rawlings — from which it was modelled. The four-fingered mitt was designed by Gerard Howland, who grew up playing cricket in London. But he quickly learned about the love affair between little kids and their baseball gloves, and turned that into the centerpiece of the stadium. `I like all the icons of baseball, and I thought of the glove. I don’t know if anyone ever throws their glove away,” Howland says. “I think it added a lot of warmth to the stadium.”
