Rated 5 out of 5 by mikejonce READ THIS REVIEW!!! CAUTION!!! This glove is not made to fit an adult male hand! I had to return it because I could hardly get my hand into it. There's no way i could ever wear it with a batting glove underneath, and if you're like me, you need to wear a batting glove underneath for warmth and sting protection. I must admit, I was a little weary when most of the reviews were talking about 12-14 year olds who LOVE this glove. I think there were even a couple of reviews from girls...shoulda known.. Note: I'm a 36 year old 6'2" 260 lb man, but my hand size hasn't changed since my sophomore year of high school (then 6'2" 180 lbs). If you are an adult male, or a nearly fully grown high school 1st baseman, I'd imagine this glove WON'T fit you, and it's really sad because it's an amazing glove. Ok, so I can fit my hand into it...but BARELY. And once my hand is in it, it feels like a dream! So sad I had to return it. Ok, so here's why it wot fit. It's not the length (12.5") that's the problem, it's the hand-opening. The hand opening is just too darn narrow! My hands aren't even super big or wide. They'e pretty average for a person of my height. To give you some scale here, I wear a size Large batting glove (if that helps). Ok, so I'm giving this glove 5 stars because: 1) It looks AWESOME: Great colors. Glove looks slightly darker in person than the pics though 2) It's made with full grain leather 3) The pocket and form of the glove are great 4) It comes ready to play (almost 80% broken in) 5) The price...I mean c'mon...this is probably one of the best 1st baseman's gloves on here, and it's only $79.00. You just can't beat that Please buy this glove!...But only if you can fit it. I 'd say it's a good glove for youth baseball for the boys all the way up through age 13, and for the girls...any age. E Enjoy! This is a really great glove. November 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mjmossking Mott for Andy-hander We were pleased with the online selection and ease of ordering a mitt for our son. It arrived quickly to our door. May 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by daffodil75 great mitt My 14 year old son wanted this to play first for his high school JV team. It is mostly broken in, and he began using it right away. He said it is very comfortable and easy to catch the ball. My only problem is that after a game his hand is discolored by the inside of the glove, but a little soap and water brings it right off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nitwit nice glove good value Nice glove for the price. Seems to be good quality.. A bit disappointed Dicks charged me additional $15 to put it in the oven to soften it up. I probably could've did this in my microwave. September 16, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patti77 Sales Associates Know what they are Selling!!!! We were looking for a first baseman's mitt for our grandson's birthday. Doug knew exactly what we were looking for and explained everything that we didn't know. His personal knowledge of playing baseball for many years in school was what really sold us. Are we satisfied...Our grandson takes it to every game and ALL of his friends have seen it!!!! Very satisfied!!!!! June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by RichardG Great glove at it's price point I bought this glove for my son's birthday. The glove was at a decent price point which was made better by it being on sale and having a $10.00 off coupon. The glove seems to be sturdy and my son loves using it. It is an excellent 1B glove and fit his hand perfectly. I would recommend paying the $15.00 to have it broke in if you do not break a lot of gloves in. Being a mitt they are harder to break in and the staff did a great job and my son was using the glove in a game the next day. The only complaiont is that they only had one left handed 1B glove which is odd since a lot of 1B are LH. However, they had the one which is all I needed. June 17, 2014
