I just recently purchased this glove for my medium height, average boned son, to play infield positions. Because his hand is small, we had a hard time closing the glove at the palm. I took the glove home and put it in the oven for five minutes at 170 degrees to soften up the palm lacing. When I took the glove out of the oven, I stood on it thus breaking down the lacing. Did this 3 times and the glove now lays flat on its side. My son loves the flexibility and padding in the palm. Its a Rawlings, who didn't dream of owning a gold glove as a kid? Hope my experience helps others make a good buying decision.

My son has been breaking it in with a mallet and baseball. We viewed a lot of ways to break it in and learned from most pros that playing catch is the best way. He has had a few practices with it and it seems to be the real deal. It's winter in Northern Ohio so you know what I am saying.

This glove is a great quality in a youth version. It will be more suitable for a 9-12 yr old due to the hand size.

bought this at the begining of the year. I start at 3rd base for highschool baseball and it is great. I tighten it once a month and doesn't appear to be getting flimsy!
