Laces woven, barely holdin’ that stitch
The creases of time amongst the grime and the grit
Where the leather he used to pound his fists
Macklemore describes the glove he had as kid, transitioning from a specific event in baseball history to nostalgic scenes from his own experience with the game.
His description of the wear on his mitt speaks to hours spent on the diamond, fielding ground balls, playing catch, and pounding the glove in anticipation for the next ball.
