Best Baseball Gloves Under $100
This Mizuno Prospect is going to be one of the absolute best gloves for a player that is just beginning to fall in love with the game of baseball. It is made from pigskin leather which will make it extremely soft in its feel. And due to the V Flex notch near the heel of the glove, it should make it extremely easy to close from the moment you pull it out of the box. On its glove page, we recommend this 11.50" model for use by players aged 7 to 12 years old, but you could probably make it work for 5 and 6 year olds too!
Other Notable Features

- Tartan Flex Web Provides A Cool Basket Look
The Acadia glove is going to give a young baseball player a professional look and feel at a price under one hundred dollars. The shell leather of the glove is made from full cowhide to give that rich leather look. And it will also have an I-Web to it which is the most popular web for older players on the infield. In spite of this glove's infield look, it can definitely be used by a youth baseball player at any position on the diamond. Lastly, to give the glove a sleek look, Marucci built it with their M-Type fit which will remove bothersome pinky and thumb loops from the outside of the glove.
