I have an 11 year old son. Looking for a glove for third base and pitching (maybe a little outfield). Coach said to look for a 12", but I like this one. Do you think this would work?
This 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove (S-200 Youth) will come with an approximate 11.25" length to it, which I think will be fine for use by him right now as an 11 year old player at 3rd and pitcher. If you are wanting this glove to last all the way until high school, it may be a stretch. However, I definitely think it will work well for the next couple of seasons. As well, I would note the 100 day guarantee that will come with all gloves we sell at JustBallGloves. If you needed to try out the glove, you would be able to use the glove and if you decided that it was not the glove for you guys within 100 days from the purchase date, you could send it back to us for a full refund or exchange.
My son is playing on a travel baseball team next spring - 8U. He will be a little over 8 yeas old at that time. He is left handed and will probably play first, outfield and pitcher but I'm guessing he could play any position at this age. I'm getting a little confused with some of the answers from other questions asking about the same thing. Some say the S-200 will fit no problem and that is the size he needs. Other answers state it might be too big and he needs the S-100. Please help.
For a player that will be 8 years old, one would want to look into getting a glove that is anywhere from 10.50 inches to 11.00 inches. With gloves it will always come down to personal preference. The S-100 will feature a smaller pattern, and on average, would be a better fit for an 8 year old. We do see customers purchasing the S-200 as well for this age to allow for growth as the player gets older. With our 100 day guarantee on all of our gloves one can rest assured that they will be using the best fitting glove for their preference.
My son just turned 8 and plays travel baseball. He currently uses the Nokona S-100 which he has been using for 2 years. How do I know if it is still the right size for him? If he needs a larger glove, is the S-200 a big enough increase for him?
Usually, you know it is the time to switch gloves if the player is complaining about the size or you can see production decrease due to lack of reach in the glove. If your player is not particularly mentioning anything about his current S-100 being too small and it is not apparent he is lacking in his field production, then I would say that he could probably continue to use that glove. However, there will be a time when that S-100 will get too small and at that point, I think this 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove (S-200 Youth) will be the most logical suggestion to get a model that is a step-up in size from the S-100.
