This glove from our baseball friends in Japan is a great entry level glove option for juniors. Designed to help youth players learn to catch the ball in the pocket, this is a great glove for those who are coming in and learning from the beginning.

Mizuno has been known for their high tech approach in most of their products across many sports, and we found their junior glove range is much the same. They have their patented PowerClose tech, allowing you to close the glove and catch the ball with ease.

This helps the ball rest square in the pocket when catching, and allows you to really grip the ball, a great learning tool for juniors. With full grain leather, it is a durable glove and mostly worn in at the factory.

We found that it felt comfortable and much easier to adapt and catch the ball in the pocket, even when we were trying to catch in our fingers, as many juniors may do at first.

It isn't as light as many of its competitors, however, that shouldn't deter you. Considered a great learning tool, the weight can help condition your youngster for when they transition into a full sized glove.

While great for teaching the game, the glove is still a great option for all players and very versatile. Its woven patterned pocket makes it great for pitchers, and outfielders can use the easy closing feature to make those big fly ball catches. A wonderful all-around glove.
