Hope I’m not opening a can of worms here, but my son is starting to focus on pitching and it’s time to get him a dedicated glove (he’s using an outfielder’s glove that’s too big).
He’s a tall 11yo (12 in August), just over 5’5" and pretty big hands. His pitching coach recommended an 11.5 to 11.75 and offered that Rawlings Gold was what he used up through high school. Part of the problem is that my son is a lefty, so going to the local stores is usually an exercise in futility so I’m probably going to order online.
In the Rawlings Gold, I see one with pro-mesh, which we were advised against, and an Anniversary Series, which seems like it would work. But before I do this, I’d love to know if anyone has experience with this series or others that they can recommend.
Appreciate all advice and apologies if there is a similar thread that is still active.
