Usually, infielders are going to use smaller gloves so they can control them better because their reaction time is much less than that of an outfielder.  Infielder’s gloves are also smaller so the fielder can get the ball out of the pocket faster so they are able throw out runners.  The outfielder’s gloves are usually larger with a deeper pocket because they are running down and chasing fly balls and having a larger mitt helps them cut down a little distance off the ball.
