Best Baseball Gloves Under $100
Mizuno Prospect PowerClose 11.50" Youth Baseball Glove (GPP1150Y3)
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 game ready 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
- Butter Soft Inner Palm Liner Improves Comfortability Of The Glove
- Power Lock Velcro Strap Allows For Easy Size Adjustments
- Tartan Flex Web Provides A Cool Basket Look
Marucci Acadia Series 11" Youth Baseball Glove (MFGACM41A2)
The Acadia glove is going to give a young player a baseball glove with 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.
What are fans saying about it?
"My 9 year old son loves it. It's his first "real" glove. Closes easy. Looks sharp. Catches everything. But the minimal break-in time is what I loved." - JG Customer, Justin
Best Fastpitch Gloves Under $100
Wilson A500 Siren 12" Youth Fastpitch Softball Glove (WBW10042012)
This fastpitch glove does have a price tag of under 100 dollars but don't for a moment think to scoff at it's quality. Just take a look at the words of one of our customers...
"Not cheaply made. Great glove to actually play the game with. Not only a kids glove but a players glove."
If you are wanting to get quality and not break the bank, this A500 Siren is definitely the way to go. Wilson has designed it for younger players to use (we suggest 7-12 year olds), but the quoted customer above believed that you could probably get by using it for at least a couple of years beyond your player's 12 year old season.
3 More Attributes To Consider:
- Top Grain Leather Should Require Almost No Break In
- One Piece, Closed Webbing (Wilson's Modified X2 Web)
- Quick Fit Wrist System Employs An Elastic Band To Ensure A Snug Wrist Fit
Marucci Acadia 12.5" Fastpitch Softball Glove (MFGACFP97R3)
When compared to the Wilson Siren model mentioned earlier, this Marucci Acadia Fastpitch glove will have the opportunity to fit and function for a lady further along in their playing career. This glove is going to be designed for use by a lady between 10-15 years of age. However, we think that even some players at an advanced high school age (or even older) will be able to get this glove on their hand! The 12.5 inch length and H-Web will make this one really popular for use in the fastpitch outfield. However, it could also be used at 2B, 3B or SS on a fastpitch infield. Be sure to nab this model if you want quality at a solid price point!
More Features To Consider:
- Shell is built from full-grain cowhide leather
- This glove should come in nearly game-ready shape
- Added cushioning in the palm should help protect the hand during the catch
Best Slow Pitch Glove Under $100
Rawlings RSB 12.5" Slow Pitch Softball Glove (RSB125GB)
If you're looking to enjoy your weekly league slow pitch night games once summer comes around, then the Rawlings RSB Slow Pitch glove is the way to roll! Not only can you get it for under $100 bucks, but you won't have to bother with a lengthy break in process. The Palm shell leather is lightweight and sturdy while the back shell of the glove is made from a special Neo Flex material that will further cut down on weight. Plus, this will be a great glove for playing catch with a kid or grandkid!
3 More Must-See Attributes:
- Super Long 14 Inch Length
