Pros: This glove looks fantastic. Soft leather, so it breaks in easily. But, the glove has good structure and will not become a sloppy mess over time. Rawlings makes the best gloves and this is no exception. My 10 year old used the glove right out of the box. Short break in period. Certainly recommend this glove

Cons: None

Pros: This is not a good mitt,IT'S A GREAT MITT.Nice fit for smaller hands,well structured.Perfect balance of softer leather but still not floppy or flimsy.Rawlings really hit a home run with this mitt! It is also very reasonably priced,this was not the first one we tried but it will be the keeper for sure. My 8 year old could close down on a clean catch right out of the box.You will not be disappointed in the quality.

Cons: None at all.

My son is about to turn 10 and is growing fast. Should I bump him up to the 12.5" mitt to allow room for him to grow or is that too big? Asked by Rich

Typically, we find that players between the ages of 10 and 13 are comfortable with a 12" first base mitt. This 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt (GFM16B) will feature a tighter wrist opening and slimmer finger stalls that works well for players your son's age. Although I think your player would be comfortable with this glove, a 12.50" would likely work for him, as long as you found a model with a similar youth fit. Taylor Expert

My son is a big 11 year old - 5'2", 115 lbs and would like his first first base glove. Is this 12" glove better option than the Rawlings Sandlot 12.5"? He plays Little League and travel ball. Asked by Babe

Typically, for an 11 year old player we would recommend getting a 1B mitt in a 12.00 inch pattern. A mitt such as the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt: GFM16B would thus be an ideal fit. Whether to use a 12.00 inch pattern or a 12.50 like the Rawlings Sandlot Series 12.5" First Base Mitt: SFM18 will come down to personal preference as far as what size feels comfortable to the player. With that being said, the Rawlings Sandlot Series 12.5" First Base Mitt: SFM18 will have more of an adult fit with relationship to the wrist opening. This may benefit a bigger 11 year old player compared to the youth pro taper fit of the Rawlings Gamer. Cameron Expert

My son is 8 yrs old and plays both rec and travel ball. He plays a significant amount of games per year. I'm interested in buying him a new first base mitt. Would you recommend the Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" 1st Base Mitt? Asked by MFerny

At your player's age, it would be hard to suggest a better first base mitt than the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt: GFM16B. It features a snug fit for a young player, and the overall quality of the glove would be hard to beat in another youth model. Logan Expert

New from Rawlings for the year 2017! The Gamer Youth Pro Taper series is the perfect choice for any younger athlete who is transitioning out of coach pitch and wants a pro-style baseball glove without having to use an adult glove. Constructed with a smaller hand opening and lowered finger stalls, the Youth Pro Taper is the perfect solution for smaller hands that haven't become full grown. Each glove is created with the newly developed, soft, full-grain leather shell that breaks in extremely quick while still maintaining quality and shape. This series, made after authentic professional patterns, displays nothing but the best in terms of features and materials. Leather reinforced palm and finger back linings increase protection so that worrying about stinging in the hands is a thing of the past. All of this is made possible by the Tennessee tanning rawhide leather laces that bring it all together and provide additional strength, structure, and long lasting durability. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro!

This 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper First Base Mitt: GFM16B features a 12.00 inch pattern, a pro H-web, and is the perfect choice for a first baseman who is just starting out.
