    glove help please!!

    Hey all, after reaidng through the post of how to break in a new glove, I was speaking with a buddy in the UK, and he wants to get a glove-said he cnat find any over there, and has never played baseball. he was asking what kind he should get, I have looked a t afew things, but the last few I have bought have been more high end, he wants a basic good start glove just to play catch with, learn the game a little, doesnt want to spend over $70 really. Any suggestions from anyone?

    The Wilson A700 is a nice starter glove. It's not quite as nice as the A2K series, but it comes soft and had a nice deep pocket. Mizuno also makes some nice mid range gloves (Franchise, Vintage models for example). I have a Mizuno Franchise that I've been using for 2 years. It's durable, comfortable, has a deep pocket, and was easy to break in. I think I paid $50 for it 2 years ago.

    I'm a big fan of Rawlings fielders gloves overall (I'm assuming he doesn't want a catcher's mitt or 1st baseman's glove), and like their "entry" level series. It's called the Player Preferred Series.

    Here's a link to one of those gloves: http://www.ballglovewarehouse.com/pr...iew.asp?i=3513

    Price range falls in line with what he wants to spend. Good glove. This one is a 13" model. That would work if he wants a bigger glove. I think my infielder's glove is a 10.5" model, although I could be wrong. It's been awhile since I last looked at the size.

    Generally, I think infielders gloves are between 9.5"-11.5", Pitcher gloves are between 11"-13" and OF gloves are typically bigger than 12.5", just as a guideline.
