Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Marucci was founded by two former Big Leaguers and their athletic trainer who began handcrafting bats for some of the best players in the game from their garage. Fast forward to today, and that dedication to quality and understanding of players' needs has turned into an All-American success story. Marucci is the number one bat in the Big Leagues and makes wood and aluminum bats, batting gloves, protective gear, and other baseball and softball accessories.

This Marucci RS225 Series 12.5" First Base Mitt (MFGRS125FB) would be a mitt for consideration for a younger player as it features scaled down finger stalls to offer a more secure fit on a smaller hand. However, the 12.5" length might be a little long for a 9 year old player. A mitt I would recommend suggesting for a 9 year old first baseman would be the following: 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt (GFM16B). I think the 12" length of the Rawlings Gamer along with the smaller fitting would be ideal for your 9 year old player.
Marucci youth mitts combine a game ready feel with big league tested and the player advisory board approved web designs. For the 2018 season, the RS225 series is composed of first base mitts that are guaranteed to give youth players the confidence they need to excel on defense. With a soft, tumbled cowhide leather, these baseball mitts are very durable and will hold their shape for multiple seasons, without fail. Since these are recommended for youth players, the wrist strap will be smaller, the hand opening will be tighter, and the finger stalls will be scaled down to create a more snug fit on a younger athletes' hand. Inside of each model, Marucci has applied fabric finger back linings to provide a fantastic overall feel. On the outside, professional USA tanned lace helps hold these youth first base mitts together and ensure a long lasting shape. Marucci: Honor The Game!
