Let me start by disclosing that my entire travel team plays in these pants. We purchased (mostly directly from Rawlings, but a few "completers" from Amazon) 48 pairs and have been playing/practicing in them for over a month. We don't have a full-season on them yet, but have some good data!

So... If you're looking for light weight pants that seem as though they will survive a long season (unless you have a vigorous slider), these pants might be for you. The black, although not popular with traditionalists, is awesome from a washing perspective and I think looks great on the field, too. Orange knees and hips on grays and whites looks sloppy and makes teams look disheveled. The Rawlings YPB31MR pants have a somewhat traditional cut from hip to knee with a little room (slightly baggy) to move, but are pretty narrow from the knee down. They are nicely made and pre-hemmed. The bottom hem is tight which is good since they are pre-hemmed. Shorter, uhhh... wider players won't have to hem them or have them hanging over their cleat heels as the stumble and tumble their way to 1B! For perhaps some helpful fit reference:

YL is perfect for a 5'-1", 94 pound 10 year-old boy with a +/-25" waist and long legs
YXL is perfect for a 5-2", 88 pound 11 year-old with a 24" waist and VERY long legs.

If your player slides hard, you will burn these pants up since they are light-weight BY DESIGN. If your player slides hard or plays on gravel lots get the Mizuno's with the on-board sliding girdle/padding, but for warmer climates (or in our case- HOT, mid-Atlantic games), I LOVE the lightweight fabric. Weigh the trade-offs depending on playing style and climate.

NOTE: I do not like the adult version of these pants. Like most men's baseball pants, the waistband to crotch height is about 4 feet! Your options are to take the field like Steve Erkel with your belt in your armpits or like MC Hammer with crotch at your knees. Your choice, but neither works. I don't care how well you move- baseball is NOT hammer time! Uh oh! Uh oh! Uhhhh oh!

This is the 4th pair of Rawlings Youth baseball pants that I've gotten this year but the first with the unfinished bottom. I like the fit of the small in the other kind. But my son wanted the loose bottom for All-Stars because that style is more popular. I ordered this one in the small as well (he wears a size 6 or 7 slim in pants) but they are really too big. I would send them back and swap but I don't have time so he is going to wear them with a tight belt. I would recommend going down a size if your child is very thin like mine. My son is also very tall for his age but we have plenty of length (not really the case in the fitted bottom leg style) so I should have went with the X-Small. I'm just very surprised in the differnces between the fitted and loose leg Rawlings pants.

I have a slim athletic son and these were just what he needed. The youth small was perfect in the waist and length for my 9yr old.

Perfect fit. Comfortable. My son loves them. I used the chart, and it was perfect. The white ones even release red clay!

After reading reviews and sizing charts, opted for the Y XXL. Did not work - length was great for 5'2", but waist would never work, even belted it was too big. Still looking for the right fit for a 27.5" waist + 28" inseam.

My son is thicker through the thighs and rear and these pants fit great! Great length too. Highly recommend them.

My son is an Adult small or normally a XL youth. The length on the XL was not enough so we tried this XXL Youth pant and he loves them so much I'm ordering another pair. These pants have the belt loops which is a must for him (the waist is a little big) and it has the flat bottom (not bunched) which he was looking for. This pant also has reinforced knees which I hope will last longer. Great pant and I would recommend to others to purchase. You can't beat the price through Amazon and the shipping speed!

Excellent! These are NICE looking pants and have held up well to a season of play. I got the medium for my 60lb/4ft 9 year old. I had to hem them because they were a bit too long but the waist with a belt fit great. The material is a nice quality and he really likes the hip padding. An excellent choice! I look forward to letting him wear them another season.

These pants fit my son who is Husky size 16. Fit him perfectly and allowed him to have room to move still, not being too tight.

My 8 year old son (52" tall, 55lbs) fits these Youth Medium pants well. Wide waistband helps keep shirts tucked in. The crotch sits a little low for my taste but he didn't mind and they look nice. Wears with a belt for perfect fit. Had to hem them, but don't mind. Because of the roominess throughout, I hope to be able to just let the hem out next season, and the rest of the pant should still fit fine. I MUCH prefer the look of these pants to the typical little league knicker style, too. Now that their games are more physical (sliding and diving) I like that the skin on his legs is totally protected while wearing these. The reinforced knee is a bonus as well. And we live/play in a very HOT humid south Florida climate - these allow breathability but still stand up to abuse while not being too heavy. Bought 2 already and would purchase again.
****UPDATE**** Almost a year later and these are still in great shape. My son is
now 72 pounds and 56" tall and we just took our hem out and they fit great for a 2nd season. They release stains well too - the red clay is barely noticeable after a soak and wash. Can't beat these pants!
