We do have this glove for a left hand thrower, however it is designed for baseball, not softball.
If the player has a smaller hand and would need a youth glove I would recommend the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 12" First Base Mitt (GFM16B) for him. If he can fit into an adult glove the awlings Sandlot Series 12.5" First Base Mitt (SFM18) is a great option.
Rawlings first base mitts are trusted and used by players on Big League fields, sandlot diamonds, and everything in between. For the 2018 season, the Sandlot series offers professionally inspired patterns with a vintage, throwback look. Each glove is meticulously constructed out of Rawlings' oiled pull-up leather that delivers a game-ready feel on day one and requires about a 10% player break-in. On one side, the Zero Shock palm pad provides additional protection that's needed on defense while the padded finger back linings offer a luxurious, unmatched comfort every time you stick your hand in. And let's not forget about the index finger pad that was strategically placed for players who prefer one finger out. Rawlings: The Mark Of A Pro!

I was looking for a softball glove to play first base with. I was able to find a great deal on a used Miken K0130-FB. When the glove arrived at my house, it was for a left handed thrower...No worries. Mistakes happen. I called customer service to explain the mix up. Spoke to a representative (Marcus? I'm terrible with names) and explained the situation. He reviewed the order, apologized, and said that was their fault for mislabeling the glove as a right hand thrower. He instructed me to put the glove in the box it was shipped in, set it on the front porch, and he was sending me a NEW glove at no cost to me. It arrived the very next day. It's not everyday you encounter customer service as amazing as justballgloves.com. I will definitely be using them for all of my future ball glove needs.
