Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger Omaha Pro Series: OPRO1154
Is this glove good for a 14 year old third baseman that plays c prep and is going into high school next year?
Yes, the Louisville Slugger Omaha Pro Series: OPRO1154 should work well for a high school third baseman.
My son is 13 1/2 and will start high school next fall. He primarily plays SS, 3B, and P. I almost got him an Omaha Select model as a youth as I've always liked them. Looking at this as a first "adult" primary glove. Would like thoughts on this and suggestions for other quality/high value gloves to look at ( I don't have the resources to go $200+).
The Louisville Slugger Omaha Pro Series: OPRO1154 would be a fine choice for the 13 year old player. This glove will be 11.50" which is typically found to be the size choice of middle infielders. It could also be used as a third baseman or pitcher. The leather will be professional grade steer hide and oil-treated. Also check out these models: Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha Flare Series: OFL1151, Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150IW, and Akadema Pro Soft Series: AMV218 With FREE Glove Bag.
What padding do you think is better, the Louisville Slugger Omaha Pro Series or the Rawling Gold Glove Legend Series? Thanks again for all your help.
The Louisville Slugger Omaha Pro Series and the Rawlings Gold Glove Legend Series have about the same amount of padding.
Do you really have to use that glove oil stuff because it seems like a pain? I play catch with my son who plays for the atlee all stars and i was wondering if we played catch everyday would it eventually break in without the oil.
No. Players of all ages and skill levels have been breaking gloves in without glove oil for over a century now. Glove oil just helps to break it in quicker. If you were to ask your average major league or collegiate ballplayer, they would tell you that repetition is key and glove oil is not needed.
My son is playing 11U travel and is looking to upgrade. He plays 2nd and outfield. Please let me know if the pro series 11.5 or the Flare 11.5 would suit him better.
Both are made for infielders. The Flare Series is going to have a slightly bigger pocket. The Pro Flare is a higher quality of leather and will be more durabe than the Pro Series.
My son is 8 playing in a 9u travel ball team and he is using a tpx slugger 12.25, he is doing fine with it. I know its to big for him i like this glove what size glove do u think i should get for him. He plays infield,pitch and outfield.
This will be a great fit for him. This is a very durable glove that has good padding. If the glove does not work for him you can always return it within 100 days for a refund of exchange.
Will this glove fit an 11 year olds hand who is a little bigger than average and is this glove all leather?
This glove is all leather and it should fit your 11 year old just fine. I know a few adults (18 years +) who use this glove and it fits them very well.
My son plays on an 11U travel team, he plays center field but does spend some time at 3rd. He's average size for his age group. He currently uses a 11.25 Nike glove and would like a deeper pocket. Would this glove offer this option, will it be heavier than the Nike and will it fit a smaller hand?
Yes, the omaha pro will fit a smaller hand and is a great option for a player who wants a quailty glove under $100. At his age that size glove should work just fine in botht the outfield and the infield.
Do you think the webbing in this glove is ok for pitching in high school, or will you be able to see finger movements through it?
I think it would be okay for a pitcher to use. I've seen multiple pitchers use a modified trap glove. I don't think you'll have any issues.
Hello, I am looking at purchasing this glove for recreational use during the occasional ball game with friends and while practicing with my niece for fastpitch. I currently have a 12.5 Rawlings Mark of A Pro glove, but wanted to give this glove a try so I could work on my fielding. Is this a quality glove that will last? I am an adult male and I'm wondering if this 11.5 would be ok to use (or if it would be too small). Thanks in advance-
I think an 11.5 inch glove would suit you well for use on the baseball field. I've known infielders in high school and college who've used a glove as small as 11 inches but others who have used a glove as big as 12.25 or 12.5 inches. It really comes down to personal preference. For me, a 11.75 inch glove felt the best when playing the infield. A 11.5 inch glove may be a little too small for playing catch with your niece with a softball, but it would be manageable.
My 8 year old son currently uses this glove: Mizuno GPP1151 Prospect Youth Baseball Glove (11.5"). He plays centerfield and first base. Would he be able to handle this Omaha glove? Are there youth Omaha gloves?
The OPRO1154 is a pretty high quality glove. It would probably take quite some time to break it in to the point where an 8 year old can use it with ease. Louisville's Omaha Crossover Series would be a better option for a younger player. They'll be made from a softer leather that will be easier for a younger player to use before transitioning to an adult style glove.
