What is the difference between the Mizuno Global Elite VOP Series: GGE51VBK and the GGE11VBK gloves? My main concern is the padding in the palm and break in. This is for my 13 yr old son who is moving up from a 11.5. He is mainly a infielder but plays outfield occasionally.
The padding and break-in process for these two gloves are extremely similar without any real tangible differences. The main difference between the gloves is the .25 inch size difference. The Mizuno Global Elite VOP Series (GGE11VBK) is a 12" glove more suited for primarily pitchers and outfielders while the Mizuno Global Elite VOP Series (GGE51VBK) is 11.75" and lends itself to being used more by third basemen.
Is this closeout glove new or used?
The Mizuno Global Elite VOP Series: GGE11VBK is a new glove. Any used models would be listed on the right hand side of the product page below the options for new models available.
Can I use hard ball on this glove? Or can I use softball?
The Mizuno Global Elite VOP Series (GGE11VBK) is designed to be a baseball, but it can be used as a softball mitt. The pocket may be a little small for a softball making it difficult to catch.
The Global Elite series has become one of Mizuno's most popular Pro Level glove lines. With the VOP series of Global Elite gloves, Mizuno has outdone themselves again. VOP stands for Vibration Oil Process. This is unique conditioning treatment that creates soft, yet extremely durable leather. This conditioning process entails each component of the glove to be hand-oiled with Mizuno's Strong Oil Elite. All Global Elite VOP gloves are made with the highest quality American steer hide that is Japanese tanned to create a perfect feeling leather. Every Global Elite has a new Roll Welting to increase structure and support throughout the fingers. With a lightweight feel and extra structural support, these gloves are quick to the ball and will retain their shape for years to come. Each Mizuno baseball glove is handcrafted to the highest quality control standards. All of Mizuno's glove craftsmen have been through a rigorous certification process overseen by Master Craftsmen Kosaku Kishumoto (fielder's gloves) and Kuni Nakamura (mitts) who together have over 65 years of experience making ball gloves.
