My son is about to turn 10 and is growing fast. Should I bump him up to the 12.5" mitt to allow room for him to grow or is that too big?
Typically, we find that players between the ages of 10 and 13 are comfortable with a 12" first base mitt. This 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt (GFM16B) will feature a tighter wrist opening and slimmer finger stalls that works well for players your son's age. Although I think your player would be comfortable with this glove, a 12.50" would likely work for him, as long as you found a model with a similar youth fit.
My son is a big 11 year old - 5'2", 115 lbs and would like his first first base glove. Is this 12" glove better option than the Rawlings Sandlot 12.5"? He plays Little League and travel ball.
Typically, for an 11 year old player we would recommend getting a 1B mitt in a 12.00 inch pattern. A mitt such as the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt: GFM16B would thus be an ideal fit. Whether to use a 12.00 inch pattern or a 12.50 like the Rawlings Sandlot Series 12.5" First Base Mitt: SFM18 will come down to personal preference as far as what size feels comfortable to the player. With that being said, the Rawlings Sandlot Series 12.5" First Base Mitt: SFM18 will have more of an adult fit with relationship to the wrist opening. This may benefit a bigger 11 year old player compared to the youth pro taper fit of the Rawlings Gamer.
My son is 8 yrs old and plays both rec and travel ball. He plays a significant amount of games per year. I'm interested in buying him a new first base mitt. Would you recommend the Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" 1st Base Mitt?
At your player's age, it would be hard to suggest a better first base mitt than the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt: GFM16B. It features a snug fit for a young player, and the overall quality of the glove would be hard to beat in another youth model.
New from Rawlings for the year 2017!
