My son is 7 and in his first year of baseball for infielder position. I am unsure of what size to start him with that would last through this age 7-9 year old Little League.
A 10 inch model like the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JR) should be a good fit for that age range.
What oil should I buy for this glove?
The Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JR) Youth actually comes pre-oiled, so we would recommending erring on the side of caution when adding an extra oil to the glove. Most people use shaving cream (preferably with lanolin), but you may also use others like Vaseline, mink oil, tanner's glove oil, glove manufacturers oils, saddle soap, etc.
My son is 42" tall and 5 years old. Would this glove fit him for the next 2-3 years? What is the recommended size glove for a kid this age and size?
For a player of his size, our glove coach would recommend the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JR Youth) in a 10.00 inch model. The average size for that age of child can vary between a 9.50 and 10.00 inch pattern.
Shoeless Joe Gloves give a player the quality, feel and style of the gloves used by professional ball players over the last 100 years. You can choose glove models used in the first half of century in the Golden Age Series, today's models in the Professional Model Series, or youth gloves with the Joe Junior Series. Shoeless Joe gloves are individually hand-cut and sewn from Special Aged Antique Tobacco Leather Hides. Shoeless Joe gloves are then hand-rubbed with old time ingredients to soften the leather before they go through their breaking in process that leaves the glove with a beaten up and "Game Worn" look and feel, of a broken in glove. Thus each glove is unstructured giving it its own unique features. Players can choose to play with an old time or modern day web without having to change to another model. A great play is lived only once, but your glove, you'll keep it forever. If you end a game with a clean uniform our gloves are not for you. Shoeless Joe: When It Was Just a Game. Free Shipping!
