What age is this mitt recommended for? Asked by coach T

While there isn't a specific age range for youth gloves, generally they are designed for kids ages 10-12 or younger. Youth models will have a narrower wrist opening and finger stalls than adult models, so it mostly depends on hand size. Kyle J. Expert

What are we looking at in terms of break in? Do you recommend steaming? Asked by Alex

We do not recommend steaming. Steaming a mitt can damage the glove. It will break it in quicker, but it will dry out, get brittle faster and be less durable resulting in a tearing mitt. The **Exclusive** Rawlings Heart of the Hide SWAG 12" Youth First Base Mitt (PROFM16BG) is a youth mitt. All of our youth mitts come game ready so there will be no break in period. Mick Expert
