I think that the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1000Y1 Youth would work great for an 8 year old who has a smaller build. It is going to feature that smaller hand opening that will benefit smaller players.

Our glove recommendations are always going to be based on the age of the player. Based on the age of your nephew the 10.00 or 10.50 inch pattern would work. As for what size pattern would be a better fit, this will really be one of personal preference for the player. With that said, a 10.50 inch pattern should allow him to get multiple seasons out of the glove without sacrificing fit/comfort.
The Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1000Y1 is a youth glove so it can be used outside of Tee Ball. This glove is the correct size for your 7 year old.
Mizuno has once again made it their priority to develop the games most exclusive line of ball gloves. One of those series is the Prospect Series. Mizuno's patented PowerClose technology is unmatched in the industry. Others may try to duplicate, but no technology closes as easily. Multiple technologies like Pocket2, PowerClose, PowerLock, V-Flex, Side Bar, and SureFit Foam, afford the youth player the best options to make catching easy. The V-Flex helps initiate easy closure while the PowerClose makes it easier for younger players to close the glove and catch the ball. The Parashock palm pad with buttersoft and SureFit Foam lining in select Prospect Series models reduce shock to minimize "sting" while delivering superior feel and comfort. Above all, the PowerClose design MAKES CATCHING EASY! Make your Mark: Choose Mizuno! Free Shipping.
