Glove size for an outfielder/pitcher

Aug 23, 2016
DD is in the market for a glove. She pitches and plays outfield and the interior of her current glove is falling apart. Because she pitches, she wants a glove with a basket web, and she'd like to buy a glove that will last more than a couple years so we're looking at the Wilson A2000, which as far as I can tell doesn't come bigger than 12.5" with the basket web.

Her HC insists that she needs a 13" glove for outfield, which I can find with a basket web if I order a Rawlings HOH custom glove (a bit pricey).

Are there any other good options? Trying to replace and break in her glove every year to year and a half is wearing me out.

12.5 is plenty big for outfield my daughter uses 12.5 for pitching and sometimes says to big for her. What age is your daughter.

13"? She catching butterflies with that net? 12.5" is perfect for a fastpitch outfielder, save those 13" and up gloves for all of the slow pitch guys . The V125 A2000 is fine, it's much better for 2021 because they got rid of the velcro wrist

And since the World is coming to an end soon.....just go ahead and splurge and order her a 12.5" custom Pro302 HOH off of the Rawlings custom builder!
