Glove sizing is extremely dependent on the player's hand size. With that being said, a 12.50" glove would be an above average size first baseman's glove for a 7th grader. Therefore if the player is larger, this 2017 Rawlings Player Preferred 12.5" First Base Mitt: PFBDCT potentially could be a great fit.
New from Rawlings for 2017! The Player Preferred series presents popular patterns that were created for all aspects of the game. Whether it be baseball, slow pitch softball, or even fastpitch softball, the Player Preferred ball glove was designed for recreational players of assorted ages and skill levels. Considering the fact that these gloves are elegantly crafted from quality, full-grain oiled leather, the break-in period will be quick and easy. Although, a brief break-in period does not deter the overall quality, structure, and durability in any way. All leather laces are interweaved for enhanced durability and strength while the Zero Shock palm padding raises impact protection immensely. Plus, each glove offers an improved fit with either a pull strap or velcro strap back. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro!
