I'm a 5'7" 11 year old, do you think this glove would fit me?
I would recommend a 12.25" or 12.50" inch glove based off the information you've provided. I think the Rawlings Gamer 12.5" First Base Mitt: GFM18BG would be a great option.
What is the difference between the Gamer and the Heart of the Hide? Would you recommend this for college level?
The Rawlings Gamer 12.5" First Base Mitt: GFM18BG will have a much easier break in than the Heart of the Hide. The Heart of the Hide will also have a much higher leather quality and I would be more likely to recommend the Heart of the Hide models for a college level player since they will be more durable.
Is this glove a good fit for youth or adult?
The Rawlings Gamer 12.5" First Base Mitt: GFM18BG is intended to be used by an adult. If you need a youth glove that's similar, I would recommend the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt: GFM16B.
Rawlings first base mitts have exceeded expectations year after year. For the 2017 season, the Gamer series is taking on a new look with the same high-quality leather that we've all come to know and love. With an updated pro-style look and feel, the Gamer baseball mitts allow younger players to feel and look like a pro at a fraction of the cost. The newly developed pro soft leather makes up a structurally sound shell that contributes to a better overall shape and an unbelievable break in that will last for many seasons to come. Similar to a lot of other Rawlings gloves, the Tennessee tanned rawhide leather laces hold these youth gloves together to guarantee added strength and durability. Inside of these gloves, the deer tanned cowhide finger back lining combines with a padded thumb loop to deliver an unbeatable fit with unmatched comfort. Each one of these models are crafted with an 80% factory break-in so that you can take it right out of the box and straight to the diamond without the worry of a significant break in period.

Recently we received our order from your company. My son, who just graduated from middle school with honors, chose to get a new glove for his reward for a job well done. Your company was helpful and patient with all or our questions. Also, your placement of a phone number where it was easy to locate was a welcome feature. As you probably know it is often very difficult to find a number to speak to an actual person when using online sites. We will be sending two of the three gloves back that we ordered, even though our son would love to keep all three. I am sure we will order gloves from you in the future. I have directed several of our frineds to your site letting them know how pleased we were with your selection and service. Keep up the good work and much success in your future business.
