Photo Gallery 2: Colorado Rockies Glove

After participating in a cultural education course offered by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, Colorado Rockies left-fielder Ian Desmond wanted to honor the team’s relationship with the Community. He found the opportunity in Community member and artist Jacob Butler, who worked with Desmond to design a custom baseball glove for Desmond that incorporates symbolism reflecting the culture of the O’ogham/Piipaash. After working on the glove for abut a week, Butler presented it to Desmond shortly before the April 29 game between the Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix.
