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.
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.
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.
