Yes, for a pitchers glove.

Piping is what in the first picture of the Wilson glove of the strips of leather on the fingers and around the hand opening. Also called welting  or binding. It is a small overall area of a glove. The pictures of the larger white leather finger areas on the Rawlings are probably going to be not allowed by most umpires.

It's a reasonably common term (this is from MW, but other dictionaries give similar definitions):

1a : a sound, note, or call like that of a pipe
