Gloves

GLOVE TYPES
As a general rule, all players below majors should use a standard infield glove.  As kids grow in skill and size, there are gloves designed for greater success at specific positions on the field.
These positions/gloves are:
-Infield Gloves: Smaller size for quick transfer from catching hand to throwing hand
-First Base Gloves: Larger glove with large "scoop" outer edge to better assist player in collecting balls on the ground.
-Outfielder's Gloves: Large pocket for more success catching fly balls on the run.
-Catcher's Gloves: Extra padding and large "claw" face to capture fast balls.

SIZE
It is best to have your child use the smallest glove they are comfortable with. This will allow for greater skill development and transfer of the ball, which is critical as the progress.
*T-ball and Farm use a 8-9" glove
*Minors - Majors will use a 9-11.5"
