My son is 9 years old and throws left handed. He is starting on his first select team, kid pitch. He weighs about 60 lbs. He has been using a Wilson 12", I want to get him a really nice glove this time around. The plays in the outfield. Which glove would you recommend?
This Wilson would be a nice choice. If you want a higher quality glove, I would recommend a Wilson A2000 or a Rawlings Heart of the Hide. The PRO206-4DS would be a good Rawlings option, while the WTA20RB18B212SS would be a nice Wilson option. These will require more break-in period however.
What is the difference between the Wilson A800, A900, A1000? My 10 year old son plays on a competitive travel team. Plays mostly left, pitches often and occasionally plays 2nd. We have been looking at Rawlings and Wilson gloves, he likes the fit of those brands. Most likely a 11.5" inch. Any suggestions?
From what I can research, it is hard to find a real difference between an A800 mitt and an A900 mitt. Dick's Sporting Goods sells an A800 mitt that looks pretty comparable to the A900 mitts that we sell at JustBallGloves (when considering leather quality). However, this Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove (WTA10RB181789) will feature a premium grade cowhide shell that will be better than what is offered on an A800 or A900 mitt. This A1000 actually comes with a pretty snug fitting to it and I think it would work well for your 10 year old player.
Son is going to be 11, looking for a glove that will last a couple seasons before upgrading to something like a Wilson A2000 for high school. He pitches, plays second and sometimes outfield. Will I be better served going with a Wilson A1000, the Rawlings Gamer XLE or something else?
The quiet dad in the stands
The Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove: WTA10RB181789 would make a great glove choice for an 11 year old player who plays multiple positions. With proper care, this glove would certainly allow a player to get multiple seasons of use before bridging over to the A2000 lineup. One of the main differences with these models when comparing to the Rawlings XLE is that the XLE models will feature Dual Core Technology; these gloves are designed with position specific break in points. In each case, it would be hard to pass on the quality construction of either model, and as cliche as it may sound, personal preference based on brand trust, etc. would be the ultimate deciding factor.
Would this glove be suitable for an 8-9 year old that is playing centerfield on a competitive travel ball team?
The Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove: WTA10RB181789 would be an excellent glove for a CF to use that is 8-9 years old and playing a competitive schedule.
Is this Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove a youth glove with smaller opening and finger spaces?
The A1000 gloves, such as the Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove: WTA10RB181789, feature an intermediate fit between a true youth model and a standard fitting glove.
How is this compared to the Nokona Alpha Youth glove fit wise?
The Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove: WTA10RB181789 will be very similar in fit to the Nokona Alpha Youth glove as both are youth models designed to fit smaller hands.
My son is 12 and has a A2000 11.25 he uses it for infield. Would this glove be good for outfield and pitching?
The Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove: WTA10RB181789 would be a great fit to use at pitcher. However, it may be a little small for the outfield. I would recommend a 12'' glove for the outfield.
I'm a 14 year old pitcher and shortstop with medium sized hands, would this glove be good for me?
Yes, the Wilson A1000 11.5" Baseball Glove: WTA10RB181789 is an excellent glove for a middle infielder given the 11.5" sizing. Furthermore, the Pro Laced T-Web will help hide your grip when pitching. This would be a great glove for you.

(1) - First remove any existing dirt by wiping the glove with a clean, dry cloth. (2) - When clean, rub a small amount of conditioner into the leather with hands or clean cloth. (3) - Work it into the web, palm, laces, inside of the glove, & any other area that has become dry or is starting to crack. (4) - When finished, place your glove in a warm, dry area (70 - 90 F) & allow the leather to absorb the conditioner for 24 hrs. (5) - Re-treat your glove when you notice the leather is starting to dry out. Prior to the off-season, apply a light coat of conditioner to keep the leather from becoming brittle.
