Rated 5 out of 5 by JJohn Great glove for 8 yr old with small hands So far this has been a great glove for our 8 year old ball player with small hands. He previously had the size 10.75 Mizuno Youth Prospect, but his coach recommended he get a bigger glove. After doing more research, I definitely wanted to stay with the Mizuno Youth Prospect line bc the gloves are easier for the little guys to close. I looked into the size 11 Youth Prospect and honestly didn't see any real significant size difference in the size 10.75 he had vs. a size 11. So we went for the size 11.5. It was a little hard for him to close at first, but after breaking it in for the past 2 weeks, he's catching almost everything and says the glove feels good and he is able to close it. NOTE: he did say the glove was hurting his left pinky after the 1st practice with the glove, but that has since went away. The great customer service guy at Dick's steamed the glove for us in the steam treatment box, but he admittedly said it doesn't help a whole lot on the youth gloves bc of the material but still agreed to steam it and offered more tips on breaking it in. Should be able to get several seasons out of this mit. August 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by BoxingRoxy Perfect Size and Feel Mizuno is our go-to brand for gloves, and this is the perfect size for my 8-year-old. Best part is the color - the bright blue really helps me to find him in the sea of identical uniforms! August 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tricia2016 Great Glove I have 4 kids and all play baseball (rec, travel, all stars), we have had a variety of gloves over the years and they all keep going back to the Mizuno! They are very comfortable, easy to close and require very little breaking in. Also I have found them to last a long time even with occasional neglect like being left out in the rain, the oldest one I have is about 5 years old and other than being small it is in great shape still...I would recommend this glove to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gajones08 Good glove for the price. I like mizuno products. I bought my son his first real glove 2 years ago. It was the red mizuno youth glove in a 10". He loved it. The only problem he wanted it in green. This year he needed a larger size and we were hoping it would come in green. It did not so we settled for the blue in 11.5". Still a very good glove for the price. As long as he is happy. I am happy. March 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by kristen24 Broken after 4 months I purchased this glove thinking it would last him a few years and the glove popped a string after just 4 months of recreational use right in the middle of a tryout. January 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by J7 Great Glove It's a little big on my 7 yr old but he's breaking it in quickly because the glove is nice and soft. I think he'll get a few good years out of this glove! September 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mkings35 The Mizuno Prospect is a great glove! Son had a smaller version (10.5) for a couple of years - was always such a good glove as it required very little breaking in. Wore the strings out and had to have it fixed - in the meantime, ordered the 11.5 - same great broken in feel. Got right on the field and didn't miss a beat. August 25, 2015
