My son is a tall 8 year old. If he is playing middle infield what size glove would you recommend? Would you recommend a different size if he is playing first base?
The 11.0" size that the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1100Y1 Youth features would work well for your player at a middle infield position. For first base at his age, I would suggest going up to an 11.5" or 11.75" size to allow for more coverage.
Is the GPP1100 or the GPL1100 better for a small 9 year old that plays middle infield?
Both the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1100Y1 Youth and Mizuno GPL1100 can both work for a 9 year oold middle infielder. The difference is the material. The GPP1100 is made from Pigskin while the GPL1100 is made from leather.
Is the difference in the GPP and GPL models only the open back vs closed back?
The Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1100Y1 Youth is made from Pigskin while the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPL1100Y1 Youth is made from Steerhide Leather.
