Ball Glove Buying Guide - Baseball & Softball Equipment
Middle Infield Glove - A five-fingered glove with a shallow pocket. A youth size is between 9 - 11 inches. Adults 11 to 11.75 inch is the typical baseball size. Second basemen prefer a smaller glove to help make those quick throws while still having control. Shortstops typically use something in the middle for grounders and quick throws.
