Typically, I recommend youth pro taper models to players under the age of 12. I would recommend the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 11.25" Baseball Glove: GYPT2-2B. It is constructed with a smaller hand opening and lowered finger stalls, the Youth Pro Taper is the perfect solution for smaller hands that haven't become full grown. However, the narrow fit style of glove is great if your player is in-between youth and adult fitting gloves. If you think his hand is too big for a youth glove but not big enough for an adult glove, then the narrow fit would be a great option.

(1) This Rawlings Gamer 11.25" Baseball Glove (G882-7BG) can be used by adult players or intermediate aged players (11-14 years). (2) I think the glove would have a good chance to fit your 12-13 year old who has a bit of a smaller hand. It may be large at first, but he could certainly grow into the fitting with time.

The newly developed pro soft leather makes up a structurally sound shell that contributes to a better overall shape and an unbelievable break in that will last for many seasons to come. Similar to a lot of other Rawlings gloves, the Tennessee tanned rawhide leather laces hold these youth gloves together to guarantee added strength and durability. Inside of these gloves, the deer tanned cowhide finger back lining combines with a padded thumb loop to deliver an unbeatable fit with unmatched comfort. Each one of these models are crafted with an 80% factory break-in so that you can take it right out of the box and straight to the diamond without the worry of a significant break in period.
