Pros: Break in: Game ready does not even begin to describe how broken in it is upon arrival.

The Nokona Alpha 12.5" First Base Mitt: S-3H does not feature an adjustable wrist strap and with this mitt being an adult model it would most likely not work well for a 12U player. Cameron Expert

Would this work for fastpitch and fit a 12U player? Asked by Dana

This Nokona Alpha 12.5" First Base Mitt (S-3H) is technically a baseball mitt as the hand opening is meant to fit an adult male hand. I think that the catching area can handle a softball, but the fitting for the hand will be too large for a 12U female player. Ben Expert
