Youth first base gloves are specialty mitts for youngsters who take an interest in playing first base. As players move up through the little league ranks, most will like and gravitate toward playing a certain position more than others, so if your player seems drawn to first base, you may want to consider picking up a youth first baseman mitt.
Like an adult first base glove, the smaller kids' version is meant to have a closed web pattern, conjoined, mitten-like fingers, extra padding, and more length in order to trap the ball. Youth first base gloves are typically 12 to 13 inches long.
You can choose from brands like Marucci, Mizuno, Rawlings, and Easton to find the glove that's perfect for your young player. Like other youth gloves, the youth first baseman mitt is made with lighter materials, making it less expensive and easier to open and close.
