Pros: Best thing about this glove is that it's ready to play out of the box, easy break-in, fits smaller hands, light weight for younger girls, has good protection, and looks nice

Cons: States it's 32.5 but has smaller pocket than the 32 and 31.5 gloves I also tried. It will work now because my daughter uses an 11inch ball, but might find it harder with a 12 inch?

Pros: I purchased the glove to catch my daughter who is 10 years old. This was my first catcher's mitt purchase. I was a bit hesitant as this it is a "youth" sized glove...and my fielder’s glove is on the larger size (13in). I do have very small hands; in fact my 10 year hands are the same size and mine. Ok – I decided to take a gamble – and I love this glove! It broke in very easy. I used it the day it arrived. I do stick my first finger out the hole on the backside of the mitt – but have been very impressed with the design of this glove as my fingers are nowhere near the pocket of the glove. I do keep a 12 inch softball inside the glove at all times when I am not using it. I have used it to catch both 11in and 12 in softballs with no issues. Excellent glove for the money.

Cons: If you have really large hands, this is probably not the glove for you. Not very forgiving if you don't catch the ball in the pocket.

My daughter just moved up to a 12 in ball and uses the Mizuno Prospect 32.5 catchers glove, but the pocket just can't handle the bigger ball. I can't find this glove in a bigger size. Suggestions on a glove that is out of the box game ready for smaller hands? Asked by JLM08

Unfortunately you will not find the Mizuno Prospect Fastpitch Series: GXS101 Youth Catcher's Mitt in a larger size than the current 32.50. A similar mitt would be the 2017 Mizuno Franchise 34" Fastpitch Softball Catcher's Mitt: GXS90F2. Cameron Expert

I am 39 yrs old and need a fastpitch glove to catch my daughter. What size should I get (I am having a hard time find one at stores that fits my hand)? Asked by Domenic

To get a mitt for catching your daughter when she practices pitching for fastpitch softball, I would recommend getting a baseball mitt with a larger circumference over getting this Mizuno Prospect Fastpitch Series (GXS101 Youth Catcher's Mitt) or another fastpitch softball mitt (female fastpitch gloves will not have the necessary fitting for an adult male hand). My suggestion would be to get a 34.00" to 35.00" baseball catchers mitt to catch your player. Ben Expert

Would this be a good glove for a 13 year old? Asked by steve

The Mizuno Prospect Fastpitch Series: GXS101 Youth Catcher's Mitt would be a good fit for a 13 year old as it is a 32.50 pattern. Trevor Expert

Mizuno is known for making it their priority to develop ball gloves for every age and skill level. The Prospect Fastpitch Series is tailor-made to fit a young female player's hand. Multiple technologies make it easier for younger players to close the glove, catch the ball and learn to love the game. These gloves help youth players catch the "right" way, in the pocket. Mizuno's patented PowerClose technology places "hinges" where players would close the glove to make squeezing the ball and making the catch as simple as can be! Inside the glove, a ParaShock Palm Pad reduces all shock caused by impact and leaves the player's hand sting-free! This mitt also utilizes Mizuno's PowerLock adjustable Velcro wrist strap to create a snug, comfortable and custom fit for every player. This 32.50 Inch catcher's mitt features a deep pocket and H-Web to make snagging any kind of pitch as simple as possible. Mizuno: Be Yourself, Only Better! Free Shipping!

When justballgloves.com learned that I'd already paid it a price for my new glove higher than I was quoted by another online retailer, without so much as my asking it do so, justballgloves.com matched that other dealer's price by refunding me the price differential. By having provided me free shipping (including free shipping from me back to it if I elect to return my glove in accordance with its 100 day guarantee) and by refunding me that price differential (by matching that other online dealer's price even after I'd purchased my glove from justballgloves.com), while continuing to extend me the justballgloves.com 100 day guarantee, justballgloves.com has proven to me it simply cannot be beaten as a seller (online or otherwise) of baseball gloves. It has earned my business, and it will continue to receive it. Thank you, justballgloves.com, for taking all the worry out of online baseball glove purchasing. Now, if I could only do my other shopping so worry free...
