Amazon.com Baseball and Softball Glove Guide
Playing the Field
Baseball and softball gloves are specially designed to suit the needs of a given field position, with each style of glove boasting unique features to improve a player's performance at his or her position. The following is a brief summary of each glove's characteristics:
  • Catcher: No finger channels, with heavy palm padding and overall reinforcements to reduce the sting of repeatedly catching pitchers' throws
  • First Base: Also lacks finger channels, but with less padding that a catcher's mitt, with added length to help catch infield throws and shallow pocket, enabling quick ball retrieval
  • Infield: Five-fingered glove has shallow pocket for fast ball retrieval, with nine- to 10-inch youth sizes and 10.5- to 11.5-inch adult sizes, and softball infield gloves having a deeper pocket to accept the larger ball
    • Second base players require smaller gloves to balance control with the need to make quick throws
    • Shortstops use a mid-sized glove for ground balls and quick throws
    • Third base players need a larger glove for maximum catching power
  • Outfield: Glove is longer to provide extended reach, with a deep pocket to handle high-lofting balls, and sizes range from 12 inches and up for adults and 11 inches for youth players
  • Softball Gloves: The characteristics, by position, of softball gloves are typically similar to their baseball counterparts, with softball gloves having more length and deeper pockets to handle the larger ball

Anatomy of a Glove
Gloves are designed to perform a relatively simple task--catch a ball. The quality of materials and craftsmanship that can go into a building a glove, however, can be surprising. Below is an overview of a glove's components and how each helps optimize your defensive game:

  • Pocket: Pocket depth is determined by player position, with shallower pockets helping infielders quickly retrieve and throw the ball, and outfielders' pocket depth aiding in capturing a ball on the fly. Softball players also need deeper pockets to catch the larger ball.
  • Webbing: The preferred webbing pattern is partly determined by field position and partly by player preference. Generally, open webbing helps infielders quickly retrieve the ball, closed or tightly woven webbing gives outfielders and third basemen extra support, and closed webbing allows pitchers to hide the ball from the batter.
  • Backs: The back of a glove, or the part that goes across the top of your hand, can either be closed or open, which is largely a matter of player preference. Some infielders find an open back to be more flexible and forgiving, while outfielders may like a closed back with finger hole for added support.
  • Wrist Adjustment: Some gloves include fit systems, or wrist adjustments, to help keep the glove tightly affixed to a player's hand. The most popular closures are buckles, D-rings, lacing, and Velcro.
  • Padding: How padded a glove's pocket is depends on position, with catcher being the most heavily padded. In recent years, many manufacturers have begun to add padding to other position gloves to reduce "palm shock."
  • Materials: By and large, gloves are constructed using one of three materials--leather, treated leather, or synthetic--with the differences relating to feel and durability.
    • Leather: Most high-end gloves are made of leather, which offers optimal feel and durability, with leather quality being a significant cost driver
    • Treated Leather: Leather material is softened and strengthened during production for quicker break-in, better durability, and lower maintenance
    • Synthetic: A lower-cost alternative to leather that offers reduced durability and responsiveness, and is a good option for beginning players

Fits Like a...
As mentioned above, age and position are the most significant factors in selecting a proper glove size. Outfielders need larger gloves with deeper pockets for maximum "catchability," while infield gloves are smaller and have shallower pockets for optimal control and speedy ball removal. Some pitchers opt for infield gloves that are slightly larger than standard, yet small and shallow enough for rapid fielding and throwing. Most younger players will benefit from youth-sized gloves that help with control, and it's a good idea to resist the temptation to buy a larger glove the child will grow into.

The tables below offer a general guideline for proper glove size by sport, position, and age.

I'm a high school softball coach and had been looking for a good glove at a reasonable price. I wasn't looking for anything that would be over the $100 mark, but something that could hold up just as well without having to be used on a daily basis. I really wanted it just to help with drills and warm up my pitchers while my catchers were gearing up. Thus far, it's been a great glove for me and my catchers. All four of my catchers use Mizuno gloves (two have the Franchise Pro GXS92 and the other two have this one). For some reason or another, this one tends to hold up better than the Franchise Pro model. I've noticed with this glove the padding stays nice for a long time while the Franchise model tends to have the padding move out of place after a while. My two catcher with the Franchise model have been complaining about their thumbs hurting, so I inspected their gloves and found that their thumbs were actually be pushed into the palm and pocket of the glove because the padding had "rolled" to the outside of their thumbs.

Anyway, another reason I purchased this glove was to always have a back up just in case the random lace or web decided to break or come loose. Surprisingly, all four catchers like the glove and the pitchers tend to like it better for some reason. The Franchise model has an open web while this has a close web. From what I can see, it looks like a better target for the pitchers because their is no light coming through the mitt from the back side; just solid leather. This glove hasn't had to come to the rescue, luckily, but one girl has used it during a game and said that she got use to it really quickly and thought about trading out her Franchise.

I also found that this model has a great pocket and really makes that classic pop sound when the ball hits the pocket.

Hand Orientation: Right-Hand Throw Verified Purchase
I've had this glove for 1 month now. I use it to catch for my 2 daughters. Their pitching has been getting faster and faster and my 20 yr old fielders glove was making me nervous that the webbing was going to blow out and I'd be eating one shortly. This glove has been great so far. It has broken in nicely without a lot of effort. I feel much more comfortable catching for them now. My girls really like the glove as well as when they pitch a nice fast ball and it hits square in the pocket, it generates a loud pop. Instant feedback they threw a good pitch!

My daughter has become quite a hard thrower and I needed a glove to protect my hands especially my thumb. This glove has a good pocket and does a good job of protecting my hands.

I got this for my husband to catch for our daughter when she pitches, she throws hard and cheap gloves don't cut it. Its taking a bit to break in but it fits him well and feels good.

Hand Orientation: Left-Hand Throw Verified Purchase
Bought this glove for my boyfriend so that he could catch for me while I'm pitching so I wouldn't destroy his hand. The glove has great padding, and best off all makes a great POP sound when you catch it right. The only flaw is that it is REALLY tough to break in. Once it is broken in though, it is absolutely amazing.

Hand Orientation: Right-Hand Throw Verified Purchase
I bought it for my 12u daughter catcher. I have never had a harder time breaking in a mitt than this one. as a coach, i used the heck out of it and had to buy my daughter another mitt for catching as she could not keep the ball from popping out of this mitt. The glove ended up being the one i used in practice with the girls for all instruction (outfield, infield, and catching). after 5 months and some dropped balls it has broken in, my daughter now loves it and has thrown the other mitt to the curb. takes a while to break in so if you buy it, be patient. it is definitely a sturdy glove. i think allot of the stiffness comes from the thick solid pocket, and once it is broken in you will be fine.

When I first received the glove, I was a little skeptical because of all the reviews about the opening being to small and that it never breaks in. then I took a look at it. I have to say that for all the people that complain about it not fitting your hand, remember that this is a WOMENS softball glove designed specifically to fit female hands. so if you are a man, do not buy it because it will not fit your hand. on the other hand this glove is very nicely built and the reason I gave four stars is because in the description it says the material make the glove easier to break in when that's not the case at all. with this type of glove you have to have some patience breaking it in. the best way is to use glove conditioner and go to the batting cages and catch some 70mph pitches. the best way is the natural way. and anytime you aren't using it keep it tied around a ball so the pocket maintains its shape. don't put it in the microwave especially with this kind of leather. in the long run, once the glove is broken it, it will work wonders and its an awesome glove to have behind the plate for any serious softball player because it is heavily padded without being super heavy in weight. I would recommend to all FEMALE softball players
