Mizuno Prospect Series: GXF101 Youth First Base Mitt
Average Customer Review
This is a great glove for young players learning to be firstbaseman bought one last year for my son and he loved it never dropped a ball easy to break and easy to catch ball with great for younger leagues
Would not recommend for older leagues not enough padding for hard thrown balls
wide area to field the ball and easier for the child to keep his glove open. nice closing system (bought the Prospect two years ago and their isn't a better glove to help make sure your child has success in closing the glove on the ball, and it fields the ball better than most due to it's wide design). This glove is great too, just needs a bit of breaking in, but will take less than others. Also bought the A0700 which is better leather, but will take longer and also runs much larger than described (too large for my 11 1/2 YO. Bought from justgloves.com because of the no hassle return, the prices are good and the selection is great (and no I don't work for this company or any sporting goods company).

What first base mitt would you suggest for a 9 year old boy? Also, what glove would you suggested for when he plays 2nd or short stop?
The Mizuno Prospect Series (GXF101 Youth First Base Mitt) would be a great first base mitt choice. Another option could be the Akadema Prodigy Series (AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt). It will be slightly smaller at 11.50". A good middle infield glove choice is the Mizuno MVP Prime Future Series (GMVP1125PY1). It will be 11.25" in size.
I currently have two first base mitts. One of them is a hand me down, and the other is a decent glove, but the ball won't stay in the glove. I play on a travel team moving up to the 13U level. Would you recommend this glove for me? My friend owns one, and I like the way it closes easily.
The Mizuno Prospect Series: (GXF101) Youth First Base Mitt would be an excellent option to take a closer look at. It incorporates game-ready Dakota Leather, a ParaShock Palm Pad, and easy Power Lock Closure technology. It is an ideal model for First Base, and will also have a deep, wide pocket to make catching almost effortless.
I'm looking for a glove for my 10 1/2 year old daughter who plays travel ball. What do you suggest for fastpitch?
I would probably suggest taking a look at the Mizuno Prospect Fastpitch Series: (GPP1155) Youth. This model is designed for fastpitch, and will also have a lot of great technology to provide young players with added comfort and protection. It also has great customization technology to help give players the perfect fit, every time.

I ordered a bat and glove and had them overnight shipped. The glove was an afterthought and even though the glove shipped in a different package, they did not charge me additional shipping. The customer service rep. made it fast and easy! Fast shipping and friendly customer service.
