What's the difference in a softball first baseman mitt and a baseball first baseman mitt? Asked by softball dad

A baseball mitt will have a slightly smaller pocket since it is designed to catch baseballs, while a softball mitt will have a larger pocket in order to better catch softballs. In addition, all fastpitch softball gloves will have smaller wrist openings and finger stalls since they will be designed to fit a woman's hand. Kyle J. Expert

Is it fuzzy leather? My daughter doesn't want a fuzzy glove. Asked by dina

The 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide 12.5" Fastpitch Softball First Base Mitt: PROTM8SB does not feature a wool, or "fuzzy," wrist lining, but rather their dri-lex wrist liner. Logan Expert

My daughter currently has a Mizuno (similar to this glove), but it has adjustable velcro strap (she has smaller hands). This glove does not have the adjustable velcro wrist strap. Would you still recommend it? Asked by jeff

This 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide 12.5" Fastpitch Softball First Base Mitt (PROTM8SB) is a great mitt with extremely high quality leather. However, for a player with small hands, it could be a little large in the fit because there is no adjustable strap to the wrist opening. That being said, it may be worth trying out the glove as all gloves from JBG come with our 100 day guarantee. You could try out the mitt and if you decided it was not the mitt for you within 100 days from the purchase date, you could send it back for a full refund or exchange. Ben Expert

New for 2017! Rawlings would like to introduce the never before seen Heart of the Hide Softball Glove. This series gives the term 'fits like a glove' a whole new meaning and the patterns are specifically developed for elite softball players. The wrist opening, finger stalls, and overall glove are crafted precisely to the female athlete's hand for a perfect fit that won't disappoint. With the patented Dual Core Technology, the breakpoints cut into the palm to allow for position specific defense and it enables the gloves to close naturally. Similarly, the palm lining is the same as the outer shell for consistency, easy pocket formation, and a quick break-in. Rawlings has helped with the already quick break-in as each glove features an 80% factory break-in. Much like that of the Heart of the Hide baseball glove, the top 5% Heart of the Hide soft leather shell is put together with the Tennessee Tanning rawhide leather laces, which adds structure, durability, and strength. Last, but not least, each glove comes with padded thumb loops for added comfort. Rawlings: The Mark Of A Pro!

This 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide Fastpitch Softball First Base Mitt: PROTM8SB features a 12.50 inch pattern, a modified pro H-web, and an overlapping closed fastback design. If you consider yourself to be an elite first baseman, buy this Heart of the Hide first base mitt today with free shipping and a 100 Day Money-Back Guarantee right here at JustBallGloves.com.

Bought my son a glove and forgot to change the shipping address to have it shipped to his apartment. Called customer service and had the shipping address changed without a problem. He had his glove in 2 days. Fast shipping and excellent customer service. I highly recommend justballgloves.com.
