Purchased for my son, 9 3/4" black and white, they are actually adult training gloves but are perfect for youth players. Very nice quality leather, I am pleasantly impressed. They make the 9 3/4" fielders gloves, 11" 1st base mitt, and a 27" catchers mitt.

I've had my eye on these smaller gloves for some time. Thinking about it for my 6 y.o.

How old is your son? And how easy do the gloves close / or work in?

Thanks,
Craig

My son is only 18 mos but I wanted a nice glove for him to carry around and grow into. I found a 5 1/2" pure leather glove here [url]http://www.kelleyathletic.com/Products/Accessories/Item/ACC_MINIGLOVE_BB[url] So Cool fits perfect. My daughter though is 7, very petite 45lbs and uses this one from Valle [url]http://valletraininggloves.com/training-gloves.htm#Eagle_Claw[url] it is very soft and pliable caught 3 buckets at the batting cage and she can close it. It's a really beautiful glove. Remember they are made for adult hands, my daughter has small hands and the glove works great for her. You will definitely need to break it in a little for him. Kids just don't throw hard enough. The other Valle training gloves are here [url]http://www.vallebaseball.com/category-s/1049.htm[/url]. This site also has specials if you buy an adult Valle glove yo get one of the trainers free. We tried the Mizuno prospect youth which is pretty much ready to go when you get it and easy to close but the quality just wasn't what I wanted. Another rout is GLOVESMITH they make a 10.25" and 11" fastback custom youth glove that is made for smaller hands. Substantially higher priced but basically the same quality. http://www.customglove.com/customglove.html?flashvar=customglovesmith Good Luck, sorry if TMI.

My son used the Salinas Training Glove all through T-Ball. He's 9 now but he still uses them for training and playing catch around the house. It was his first "real" glove. He plays on the SIII 9U Select team now so we're at the academy 3+ times a week so we're constantly checking out the new gloves.

I know that the training gloves are small, but are they sized for an adult hand?

Thanks for the info. on the usefulness of the Vale's.

Yeah, I came really close to picking up a Kip glove with the 9" trainer. I may still. I have 2 Blue Label Luguers on their way in youth sizes. I'll see if they do the trick, first.

The Salinas look nice. Wish i could find them for under $99. Or a used one.

You'd think with all the demand for quality youth gloves, there would be more choice out there. Everything seems to be junk. My son is currently using an old Louisville 10.5" . It does the trick for now, but I'd like to get a quality glove that he could use NOW and then mold to his hand and continue to use until he's 11.

Rolin makes 10" and 10.5" kids gloves.

You can see them on my webiste at http://www.gloveguy.us

These are proportioned for a small hand.

I have sold a bunch of these, and the gloves have been getting rave reviews.

I have several in stock. I can also custom order these in any color combination.

JC,

I am a fan of Rolins gloves. I picked up a used one (11.75") a fews months back and it's one of my favorite gloves I have tried. However, despite the small size, it's heavy. Too heavy for a youth. Now, mine could be an older model, but what's the weight on the 10.5 + 10.75 that you mention? They look nice.

Craig

My nine year old has a Rolin from JC, and it is the 10.5" model. It is light in hand , and it is nicely built glove. My only regret is that I did not get him a custom one with his name. It is everything I could ask for in a glove for a higher level youth player. Good leather, nicely proportioned finger stalls, and a good pattern for middle infield. The pre-break in process made itbgame ready very quickly.
