My daughter is currently in 10u fast pitch but will be moving to 12u in the fall. This will be her 3rd season with her current glove (11.5"). She mostly plays infield positions: pitcher, short, 3rd, 1st and sometimes outfield. I'd like to buy a glove that she could use now if she wanted to but would be the right size for her when she moves up to a 12" ball. Would this glove be a good fit for her and yet last awhile or should we look for a 12" glove? Also, could you recommend a catchers mitt as well? Something that I (mom) could use when she pitches to me and that she could use if she catches? Thank you for your time.
The Mizuno MVP Fastpitch Series (GMVP1175F1) will be ideally suited for younger fastpitch players. It features a game-ready feel as well as the pebbled Bio Throwback leather which decreases the break-in period. Additionally, the V-Flex Notch does a good job of assisting in glove control and closure for younger players with smaller hands. As far as recommending a particular catcher's glove for both you and your daughter to wear, you could definitely take a look at the Mizuno Franchise Fastpitch Series (GXS90F1) Catcher's Mitt or the Mizuno MVP Fastpitch Series (GXS57) Catcher's Mitt.
My daughter is 17 and plays travel and school ball. She is a short stop, but will probably move to 3rd this year. Last year I bought her the Nakona buckaroo black 12" glove. She has very small hands and has difficulty closing the glove because her fingers barely fit into the finger stalls. The result is is a lot of her backhand plays, the ball drops out of the pocket. I am looking for a quality glove for small hands. Possibly a "Pedroia "fit. What would you suggest?
Unfortunately, because they are already a smaller fit, most softball gloves will not feature a smaller fit version like what the "Pedroia fit" does for baseball models. Really the only way to get that smaller fit would be to go with a youth model such as the Mizuno Prospect Fastpitch Series (GPL1200F1) Youth glove. That glove, however, would not be as high quality as the Nokona that you had or this Mizuno MVP Fastpitch Series (GMVP1175F1).
My daughter loves this glove but is left-handed. Do they make this size for a lefty? We have looked all over.
Judging by our system, we have never carried a Left Handed Thrower model of the Mizuno MVP Fastpitch Series (GMVP1175F1), so I don't believe it was produced. It appears the 12.00" pattern size of the Mizuno MVP Fastpitch Series (GMVP1200F1) would be the most similar glove available in a Left Hand Thrower. You could contact Mizuno directly at: (800) 966-1211, but it seems like the Left Hand Thrower models just aren't out there for this Series.
Mizuno is a leader in developing the best new fastpitch softball gloves on the market today.

Made from soft, pebbled, Bio Throwback Leather, Mizuno MVP Fastpitch gloves are game ready straight from the box.

These gloves are made specifically for the female athlete with their narrower finger stalls, vertically laced heel, and V-Flex Notch that helps initiate easy closure. These gloves have a closed back design with a PowerLock adjustable Velcro wrist strap for a custom fit and maximum performance. In addition, the redesigned MVP Fastpitch Series features the new Center Pocket design which allows for the most versatile break-in possible!
