My son is a catcher in Little League majors. He is on the smaller side of his age. He is 11 going on 12 in June. I am not sure what size his glove is now; he has used it since AAA for over 2 years. It seems a little small and sometimes the ball is popping out of his glove. What size and brand do you recommend and also which break in faster?
A mitt is always going to be one of personal preference so there is no exact size of mitt a player should use based on his age. Per the age of your player, our general recommendation would be 32.00 inches. The Mizuno Prospect Series: GXC112 Youth Catcher's Mitt could work from a size standpoint at 31.50 inches and will fit a smaller hand; break-in will be relative fast as this model features the PowerClose technology.
My son is 8 and I need to get him a mitt. I have never bought a catcher's mitt. What size is the best for 8 year old boy?
For an 8 year old player we would recommend getting a 31-31.50 inch mitt. The Mizuno Prospect Series: GXC112 Youth Catcher's Mitt would be a great option as this mitt features a 31.50 inch pattern, a youth fit and, with the PowerClose Technology, it is a mitt that is easy to use right out of the box.
This mitt seems small. How can we be sure it fits properly (my son is 11.5 years old)?
This Mizuno Prospect Series (GXC112 Youth Catcher's Mitt) will probably be a little small for your 11 year old. I might recommend a mitt with a 32" or 32.5" circumference. One that I might recommend viewing is 2016 Rawlings GG Gamer Series (GCM325BT Catcher's Mitt). The fitting might be a little large in the fitting to start, but I think it is something into which he will grow with time.
Mizuno is known for making it their priority to develop ball gloves for every age and skill level. The Prospect Series is tailor made to fit a young ball player's hand. Multiple technologies make it easier for younger players to close the glove, catch the ball and learn to love the game. These gloves help youth players catch the "right" way, in the pocket. Mizuno's patented PowerClose technology places "hinges" where players would close the glove to make squeezing the ball and making the catch as simple as can be! Inside the glove, a ParaShock Palm Pad reduces all shock caused by impact and leaves the player's hand sting-free! This mitt also utilizes a conventional open back with a narrower wrist opening to create a snug, comfortable and custom feeling fit for every player. This 31.50 Inch catcher's mitt is a full-sized youth pattern and features a two-piece closed web to make snagging any kind of pitch as simple as possible. Mizuno: Be Yourself, Only Better!
