The larger sizes (13 to 14 inches) are manufactured for softball
Outfielders typically wear gloves in the 12.5 to 13.5-in range because
the large pocket makes for great catching.
Infielders looking for quick transfer often use a slightly smaller
glove, between 12 and 13 inches.
Pitchers, like infielders, usually prefer the quick transfer of smaller,
12 to 13-in gloves
Middle infielders should look for a shallower pocket within the
recommended size range.
Youth and Beginner:
Gloves that are too big allow "cheating," preventing beginners from
developing and refining proper skills. Kids' gloves should not be bought to be
grown into. The best way to learn the fundamentals of fielding and catching is
by wearing a glove that fits well
Kids 12 and Under:
No larger than 12 inches. Kids 8 and older should try gloves in the 11s,
while younger kids (especially if they are smaller) should consider gloves in 9
to 11 inch range.
Choose the lower end of the adult size range for your position.
