Looking for a fast pitch outfielder glove for a 13 year old girl. What do you suggest? Is Shoeless Joe the best brand to go with?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200BW) is actually designed for baseball players with larger finger-stalls and a larger hand-opening. The fast pitch model will be the Shoeless Joe Shoeless Jane Fastpitch Series (1200FPBW). Additionally, you could consider the Nokona Walnut Series (AMG175X) or the Wilson A2000 Series (WTA20RF15CAT Fastpitch).
What is the difference between the Shoeless Joe 1200BW and the 1200VL?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200BW) will have a basket web, while the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) will have a reinforced closed web. Both gloves will feature the 12.00 inch pattern as well as the same hand-rubbed antique tobacco leather.
I have a 14 year old son that plays competitive baseball who is 5' 11' and 185 lbs. He plays third base. I'm a little confused on whether to get him a 11, 11.5 or 12" glove. Also, I've never heard of Shoeless Joe gloves. Are they a stable company and is this glove on the quality of an A2000? I'm comparing those two.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW is a high quality glove and Shoeless Joe is a stable, reputable company. The A2000 Series are high quality, durable gloves that will require an extensive break-in period, while the Shoeless Joe will be game ready right away. We recommend an 11.50" for a 14 year old third baseman, such as the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150HW.
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 or today`s models in the Professional Model Series. The 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 feature. 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!
