Unfortunately, we do have the Shoeless Joe Shoeless Jane Fastpitch Series: 1250FPBW without the pink and yellow label.
The special aged antique tobacco leather of the Shoeless Joe Shoeless Jane Fastpitch Series: 1250FPBW should provide a softer leather that will allow for an easier close than most gloves. When you get up to the 13" size, it will require some additional hand strength to close that glove. I would still recommend going with the 13" glove considering your player is looking for the extra length and if that glove is too much, you can always utilize our 100-day money back guarantee.
The best way to break in the Shoeless Joe Shoeless Jane Fastpitch Series: 1250FPBW or any other glove is to use a small amount of glove conditioner or oil on the palm and finger stalls of the glove. Once this is lathered in then playing catch with the glove and taking a ball or wooden mallet, like those included in the glove care kit, to help soften up the areas needing additional attention. The areas to focus on would be the pinkie and thumb stalls as well as the heel of the glove to help make the glove easier to close.
