    Thanks for sharing everything we need to know about baseball gloves! i’ve been thinking which pair to buy for my nephew now that he’s gonna go to college and I heard he’s gonna take baseball for PE subject. 

    By the way, which is really a good leather for baseball gloves, is it sheepskin or kip leather? Can these gloves last for 20 years just like the other custom made gloves? 

    I wanted to check out mizuno and wilson sinceithose brands are available in our country. It’s easier to look at displays in sporting stores.Usually the store pricing here is really expensive than the actual price shown online.

      Hello, MissusB, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Both types of leather are used sheepskin and kip leather.

      With the excellent and right treatment, it can be used for many years because in all of these gloves are enormous quality.

    Hey!
    I’m so pleased to come across your site.  As a runner I downloaded your great resource straight away – thanks so much for that.  OK, we have a young child who might well go the baseball route so its really helpful to know what’s out there.

    There’s so many features and benefits of each of the gloves and I love the way you have broken it down so clearly.  Gloves have come a long way from when I played softball as a kid at school.

    A very important thing for me is hand size and getting the right fit.  Do all of those 5 brands come in different hand sizes?  I’d want to get one that has clear measurements of how I measure hand size to match to the glove, can you recommend which of the 5 have the most customisable hand size’s so it fits like a glove?
    Thank you

      Hello, John, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Great to hear about your benefits of the article.

      First of all, these gloves are for more than only youth players. All age can use this high-quality baseball gloves. But about your question; “how I measure hand size to match to the glove,” I wrote a helpful article about it. You can see it here.

      But no, there is a difference in the hand sizes.

      The Mizuno is like this: Top on the Mizuno Classic Pro Soft Baseball Glove Series’ list of features is the gloves attractive construction retailing in either 11.25″. 11.5″, 11.75″, 12″, 12.75″ and 33.5″ styles. This style ensures you get the attractive features is the size that you want.

      The Wilson glove have 11.25″, 11.5″, 11.75″, 12″, 12.25″, 12.5″, 12.75″, 13″, 13.5″, 32.5″, 33″, 33.5″, 34″

      Akadema has 12.5-inch.

      Rawling has 12.75.”

      So as you can see, there is a difference. But seeing what you have in mind, I believe that Wilson and Akadema could be fascinating for you. So I recommend you to look at it closely. If you listen to the video, you hear and see how they develop their gloves. And I have heard a lot of people who don´t want other gloves than Akadema after using it to start. It is a smaller brand, but people are delighted how comfortable it is.

      But having said that, the other brands are perfect too, otherwise, it hasn´t been on this list. But as I see what you are looking at, I recommend these two brands for you.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    I like the Mizuno classic pro soft outfield baseball glove.

    Can I get it in small size? I would like one as a birthday present to my niece who will be 7 years soon.`

    You have made a great list, all of them are of a very good quality. But I like the Mizuno because of the ultra soft palm liner, it is a very nice feature for a girl.

    Thanks

    Hi.

    Baseball gloves have improved a lot over the last twenty years. I appreciate you gathering up so much information on all of the gloves in one place plus so many other reviews.

    I used to play softball a lot. I wish I had access to this information back then. I didn’t realize that gloves were available in so many sizes. I usually had to make do with whatever was available on the store shelf. When I need another new glove, I’ll be shopping smarter. I really like the stitching on the Rawlings pro. Do you know if it comes in a lighter saddle brown?

    I really like this site, and it is easy to use. Knowing how to measure my hand for a baseball glove is really helpful, too. I looked around quite a bit because a lot of my outdoor hobbies are covered here. Thank you for such a great shopping experience.

      Hello, Roberta, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Great to hear about your benefit of reading the article too.

      Like equipment for so many sports, Baseball gloves have had an enormous development — more and more knowledge, and thinking too, in all details and qualities.

      Unfortunately, Rawling hasn´t this model in color you mention.

    Great info! I actually had no idea we can get Japanese baseball gloves. I am looking for a glove for my niece. It’s hard to say if she’ll be a pro but she sure loves the game. This article will help me make my decision as to which way to go. Greatly appreciated! Keep up the good work!

      Mizuno is a great brand. Have big respect. I personally had used handball shoes from them, which was excellent and incredibly durable.

    I want to purchase a baseball glove for my nephew who loves baseball and whose birthday is coming up… However, I know nothing about baseball myself so that I would like your help…

    Which one should I choose? My nephew is 10 years old, should I consider size? Also, is there a brand which is higher-quality than the others? Money is not an issue…

      Wilson, Rawling, and Mizuno are all big brands in baseball. Akademia is not as big, but their quality in baseball gloves are so much that big part of players which start to use their product keep doing it. In my opinion, that is a big recommend.

      But, as your nephew is young and probably not sure where he is going to play, I want to mention this post. The reason is that the gloves are cheaper and more for younger players.

      Having said that, I am a big fan of the Wilson A2000. Very comfortable gloves and easy to break-in. And too, I like their look so much too! But that is, of course, personal taste.

      Don´t hesitate to contact me if I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions.

    Comparing the five baseball gloves, I think it’s the Rawlings’ that won my heart. Although the Wilson brand appeals strong to me too, in the cons among the 5 gloves, it’s the Rawlings’ that has the least negative of them all. I can accept fading than breaking in. My question is, can I use this glove in playing softball? Here in our place, softball is equally popular with baseball.

      Hello, Gomer, and thank you.

      Yes and no! Yes, because you can use it.

      But you need to have in mind that you break the softball gloves differently than baseball. The result of that is that it is not suitable in baseball after you have broken it for the softball.

      it is an excellent video to explain it which you can see here.

      Don´t hesitate to contact me if I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions.

    It is impossible to buy anything Baseball related here, so I have to come online to find different items for him like Baseball bats & balls, Baseball jerseys, and Baseball gloves

    He isn’t a fan of just one team yet, so it doesn’t really matter which team jersey or memorabilia I buy for him, just as long as it is Baseball related in general

    I really only thought that there was 1 type of Baseball glove, so I’m a bit confused about what to get him now because he doesn’t play games, he just likes to throw the baseball back and forth with me

    Any ideas what I could get him for that?

      Hello, Matthew, and thank you.

      Yes, I know this problem from my country too.

      He is young, and too because you have in mind, I would prefer to recommend the Wilson A700 Baseball Glove Series which you can see the review about in this post.

      The reason is that it is cheaper, it is excellent for what you have in mind, and it can be used for playing in all position.

      The size is essential because outfielders focus on catching the ball, but the infielder needs to use their speed they can. Because of that, it is better to use smaller gloves.

      Don´t hesitate to contact me if I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions.
