On Friday, Rawlings filed suit against rival manufacturer Wilson in Federal Court, over the glove Wilson supplied to Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, according to courthousenews.com.

Phillips' glove "includes metallic gold-colored webbing, stitching and lettering," violating Rawlings' Gold Glove trademark, according to the lawsuit.

From the courthousenews.com story:

"Not only is Mr. Phillips using the infringing Wilson glove in the field during games, warm-ups, and practices, but defendant and Mr. Phillips also have promoted the very existence of the glove (and its connection to Wilson) through various channels and media," the complaint states.
