The glove is very solidly built. Size is great for fourteen year old hands. Pretty stiff on receiving, but after only a little seasoning she's catching great. Going to take quite a bit of work to get the glove as flexible as she wants it. I agree with the other reviewers. Don't buy this glove if you need to use it in a week. I do think it will last a long time.
Very good female fast pitch first baseman's glove, breaks in easy, snags everything!
Great but Stiff at First
When I received the glove, I was struck by how stiff it was. I bought a break in kit with it so I immediately got to work. After a few days, I decided to bring it with me to practice, and the ball just wouldn't stay in. Sprung out every time. Oiled it some more and worked on it for an hour while hanging out.
Pros- The padding is sufficient. I can barely feel the sting in my palm anymore. Once its broke in, the pocket is quite large and the ball stays in. Its a good looking mitt too. Its an ok size for a small female.
Cons- For me, (5'4, 110 lbs, female) I found the that my hand was spread quite open inside the glove. The glove only has 4 finger holes. Unsure if I'm supposed to put my 5th and 4th together, or wear it with my index on the outside of the glove. Both positions are comfortable, however, the glove is very hard to close with the index on the outside. Once I started putting my 2 fingers together, it was 100X easier to shut on the ball. Also, it doesn't shut as easy if the wrist strap is on tight. Once I loosened it up, it shuts very easily.
Overall, I do like the mitt. I bought it thinking I could wear it like my fielders mitt. Super tight to my hand with my fingers only spread a little. Its the complete opposite of what I thought. Needs to worn a little loose with pinkie and ring together to get optimum easy closure.
Great glove but needs to be broken in.

My daughter put the glove on out of the box and the ball would jump out like the glove had a spring inside. I have never broken in a 1st baseman’s glove before this one, so it might be normal, but this one was hard to brake in when compared to the fielders gloves I’ve worked with. It took a week to get a good pocket for the ball in it and to get it to close with the ball inside. To break it is I used glove oil, and an 8 lb. hammer to get good action in the glove (easy open and close). When not in use I put a ball in it, placed it in a shopping bag and taped it up tight with the tape on outside of the bag.
It now traps the ball well with a one hand operation as 1st basemen need. Don’t buy this on a rush. Plan on a weeks to get it right. After it was broken in, the performance is great. If the ball goes in the glove, whether it is thrown hard or tossed, the ball gets stuck in it like you would expect. The extra padding on the palm is a real plus. The gloved hand is very well protected. This stitching is solid. The outer shell is almost all nylon webbing. Easton claims the nylon on the outside makes it lighter, but since this website doesn’t weigh the products I can’t compare. I don’t know how well that nylon will wear. Time will tell.
