My son is 6 years old and it's his third season. What size glove does he need? He was using a 10" and it's too small now. He's a left hand thrower.
Based on his age we would recommend a 10.00" glove. However, if the 10.00" is too small we recommend a 10.50" Easton Z-Flex Youth Series: ZFX1051.
I'm trying to decide on a glove for our 7-year old. He plays on his league's All-Star and Travel teams so he's fairly advanced. Would you go with the Akadema Rookie Series AJT 99 or the Easton Game-Ready GR11 Youth? I get the feeling that the Mizuno Prospect GPP 1102 and Wllson A450 are for younger, more beginning players. He's a lefty so there's not a huge selection in 11 inch gloves.
Both the Akadema Rookie Series AJT99 and the Easton Game-Ready GR11 youth will be good gloves and both should break in fairly easily. Depending on position being played the H-Web on the Akadema will help trap the ball better than the basket web on the Easton.
my son has rather large hands for an almost 8 yr old. Would this glove fit or are the finger holes small?
The particular model is labeled as "Youth" so it has smaller hand slots and finger stalls, specifically designed for younger players. Keep in mind our 100-Day Guarantee Return Policy listed under "Customer Service" on the website.
Most younger kids either don't know how, or dont want to take the time to break-in a glove. That's why Easton has introduced the Game Ready Series, made specifically with the youth ball player in mind. Made from soft tumbled oil-tanned leather, players can take these gloves out of the box and on to the field! Kids generally need a glove that is easy to squeeze, which is why Easton introduces Z-Flex to this series. Z-Flex gloves have elastic strips on each side of the heel, which combined with ultra soft leather, creates one of the softest most flexible gloves on the market! These gloves use Easton's VRS Palm Pad which disperses the impact of the ball to help alleviate sting and make catching the ball more fun. The finger stalls on this glove are lined with Easton's BioDri material which wicks away moisture, keeping the players hand cool and dry. The Game Ready Series gloves feature Easton's patent pending Ideal Fit System. The Ideal Fit System features a contoured index finger channel which combines the flexibility and comfort of an open back with the control of a closed back glove. This control is enhanced by a Lock Down adjustable Velcro wrist strap that ensures a comfortable custom fit for all players! Easton: Know-Feel-Be The Difference. Free Shippng!
