An 11.50" will be too large for a 7 year old. We recommend the uno Prospect Series: GPP1002 Youth.
What's the difference, if any, between the Mizuno GPT1150 and the GPT1151? Thanks!
There is not a difference between the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPT1151 Youth and the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPT1150 Youth. The GPT1151 is simply the newest model.
Please tell me which of the two is softer, easier to close, and will break in faster? The Mizuno Prospect Series GPT1151 OR Rawlings Mark of a Pro Series: TP1150MT Youth
The Mizuno will be a little softer and easier to break in. Both will be easy to close, but the Mizuno may be just a bit easier.
Is this glove made out of real leather or something else? Will it crack or split after a short time playing?
The GPT1151 is made of real leather. It won't be quite as durable as some of Mizuno's higher priced gloves, but it is perfect for a young player that is still growing.
Would this be a good glove for a 9yr old infielder?
This glove has a size of 11.50 which is designed for infield players.
We have a 12 (almost 13) yr-old; but he's on the small side. How do you know when you go from a "youth" glove to adult? Need pitcher / infielder glove.
It depends on how comfortable your son is with an adult sized glove. The big difference between an 11 inch youth glove and an adult glove is the hand slot in the inside.
would this be a good glove for 12 year old infielder
With him being 12 yrs old, the youth glove could be a little small in the finger slots for him, depending on his hand size. But the glove itself, is an awesome glove, nice padding, easy to break in.
Would this be a good outfield glove for an 8yr old?
Yes, it would be a great glove for an eight year old outfielder.
