Fastpitch outfield softball gloves usually measure 12 to 13 inches in length and tend to have larger, deeper web patterns to create as big a pocket for the ball as possible. The most common web patterns for these gloves are basket, modified trapeze, dual post, and trapeze, which are closed to better trap and hold the ball.
Whether tracking down a fly ball or scooping up a grounder, outfielders need to be able to not let the ball get away from them once they get to it. Thus, it's important for fastpitch outfield gloves to have rigid fingers that won't bend and allow the ball to slip out.
From brands like Mizuno, Rawlings, Worth, Nokona, Wilson, Marucci, Easton, Louisville Slugger, and All-Star, you can choose the glove that's a perfect fit. When picking the right fastpitch outfield softball glove, consider whether or not you want a utility glove. A utility glove will be slightly shorter and will have not quite as deep a pocket, but you'll be able to use it on the infield, making it a more versatile glove.
