Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series: 3000JR Youth Catcher's Mitt
Average Customer Review
The glove was fully broken in, in 3 days. We were looking for a high quality light weight glove....look no further, this is the one!
There is a leather lace on the inside that has rubbed a blister on my son's palm. That could be better designed. We put a piece of duct tape over it.
THIS IS A NICE GLOVE BUT IT IS NOT WORTH THHE 180 BUCKS. IT IS LIGHT AND IT IS REALLY EASY TO BREAK IN. IT IS THE PERFECT SIZE OFR MY NINE YEAR OLD NEPHEW.
THE LEATHER IS NOT NEARLY AS NICE AS IT LOOKS ONLINE AND IT HAS A MUCH LIGHTER COLORATION. THE LEATHER DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE LONG LASTING.
The leather is super soft, almost sticky out of the wrapper. The seams are nice, the comfort is throwback style like my old Wilson's. It's also very light in weight.
The cons are great. 1. the glove is too small. 2. the leather is too soft (sloppy) 3. the padding in the glove is almost plastic feeling. IT's very spongy and you can compress it with your fingers as if it has plastic bags inside the padding. I am sending this back because of the over floppy fee and the weird noise it makes when you squeeze the padding - as if it crinkles.

Hello, My son, 8 years old 4'2" 88 pounds is currently using a Mizuno Prospect Series: GXC112 Youth Catcher's Mitt 31.5 inch. It fits well but I am looking for a mitt with a deeper pocket. How does the Mizuno compare to the Shoeless Joe 3000JR and the Shoeless Joe 3200CM? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The Mizuno Prospect Series (GXC112 Youth Catcher's Mitt) will have a bit of a smaller pocket than both the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (3200CM Catcher's Mitt) and the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (3000JR Youth Catcher's Mitt) even despite the smaller circumference size in the Joe Junior Model. That being said, all 3 mitts will similar in the softness of the leather and require little-to-no break in time. All 3 mitts you are looking at are excellent for game-ready catching options.
My son is almost six and wants to catch for coach pitch again. Is this glove the right size for him?
The Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (3000JR Youth Catcher's Mitt) is a youth model at 30". It would be a great size for a 6-8 year old player.
My son is almost 10 and currently uses a Wilson A800, would I need the 30" or 32" glove?
At 30.00", the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series: 3000JR Youth Catcher's Mitt may be a little too small for your son. I would look at a mitt closer to 31.50" in size.
