My son is 11 years old. I want a first base mitt that will fit him for a while. He is 5 foot 4 inches tall. Would he be fine with the 12 inch model?
The length of the pocket is more a matter of personal preference for the player rather than it being based on their size. At that age, if you want to get a good lifespan from the glove, it is important to decide between a youth sized model with smaller finger stalls and wrist openings or an adult model that they may be able to grow into like the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200FB). 12-13 inch mitts are fairly common as players develop.
Is this the right size for a 13 year old player?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200FB) First Base Mitt features a 12" pattern and it is the ideal size for a 13 year old player.
I am a 14 years old and I am getting into first base. What glove should I get? I have a larger sized hand and my brother had a mitt and it was too small.
Based on your age, our Glove Coach recommends a 12.50" pattern. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200FB) is a 12" pattern, so it may be too small for you, especially if you have larger hands. Sizing is preferential though, so if you would feel more comfortable going with a 12" pattern, that is something to take into consideration as well.
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!
Shoeless Joe is now offering a reconditioning program for all of their gloves! Once your glove is starting to wear down, simply send it back to Shoeless Joe, and for $18 they will recondition your glove using their original Antique Tobacco Tanning Oil. After reconditioning, your glove will look as good as it did the day you got it! To participate, simply contact Shoeless Joe at (855) 563-4568 to get your RA number and get the process started.
