Wilson Game Ready Softfit Series: A0800BBYTHBM Youth First Base Mitt
Average Customer Review
First, I want to thank justballgloves.com for getting me the glove for my son so quick. Ordered on Sunday and it arrived by Tuesday via UPS. My son is a lefty and has been working really hard on his defense, so I bought him this mitt. He couldn't wait to use it so we took it to the practice facility tonight. He and the glove performed awesomely. I am sure it will last him for at least the next 4 - 5 years once he out grows it. It is a nice thick cowhide leather and constructed really well so I doubt we will have any issues.
The hand compartment is huge. I wear a men's size large batting glove and have no problem putting my hand in it. My son is a taller than average 9 year old and it is big for him. All that being said we are very happy with the purchase.
Great glove. Purchased the 11.5 glove for my 7 year old. It's a little big for him but he's a small 7 year old. Even though it's game ready he had a little trouble closing the glove. It took a little while for him to get comfortable with the glove but now he loves it. Looks like it will last a few seasons.

My son is 8 1/2 and plays both select and little league baseball. He plays third, first and catcher and uses a fielders Mizuno fielders glove 11.5". He needs a first basemen's mitt. Is this the best option for him and should he go with the recommended 11.5" or go up in size to the 12"? Also, with this glove being "game ready" will it be too soft after so much use?
If you want a mitt he can use for longer than one, maybe two seasons, then a 12" model with better durability would be recommended. If you're fine with a mitt that will last him this season and maybe next season, the Wilson Game Ready Softfit Series: A0800BBYTHBM would be a great option. It designed for a youth ball player and even though it's game ready, it should definitely last 1-2 years, while holding it's shape well.
My son has an 11.5" Akadema 1B mitt. It is about 3 years old and pretty worn. He is 11 but small for his age... 4' 8" and 70 lbs. All the docs I see say he should go up to a 12" but I am worried about the hand compartment being too big with a larger glove. What do you suggest?
A 12" youth glove will fit the exact same as an 11.5" youth model. Hand/finger area will not be different.
My 7 year old is currently using an 11.5" Nike glove. He plays first base and is ready for an actual first base mitt. I am trying to determine what size to get him. Is an 11.5" first base mitt any bigger then a 11.5" regular baseball glove?
A youth first base mitt for the 7 year old player should be 11.50" to 12" in size. It will feel similar to the 11.50" glove he is currently using. The Wilson Game Ready Softfit Series: A0800BBYTHBM Youth First Base Mitt would be the glove that I would recommend for him.

Product as advertised, and it arrived extremely fast with regular shipping. Great service, I ordered two gloves for my son and shipped one back (free). It was easier than going from store to store -especially when brick-n-mortar stores have a limited Fall selection.
