Mizuno Prospect GPP901 Youth Baseball Glove (9-Inch) Review, Price, Where To Buy
The 9-inchMizuno Prospect GPP901 Youth Baseball Glove is a stylish black baseball glove that can be purchased in both ‘left handed throw’ and ‘right handed throw’ varieties. It incorporates ‘PowerClose’ technology which makes it easier to catch the ball and also has a v flex notch which helps initiate easy closure. In addition to this, the Mizuno Prospect GPP901 Youth Baseball Glove has a ‘Parashock’ palm pad that absorbs shock and minimizes the sting of catching powerful balls. Finally, the side bar tapered design secures the hand in place which gives you better control of the glove.
1) Durable:- One of the first things that surprised me about the Mizuno Prospect GPP901 Youth Baseball Glove (in a good way) is that it’s very durable and built using high quality materials. I’ve had a few bad experiences with kid’s gloves in the past and found that a lot of them are not built to the same high standards as adult gloves. As a result they often fall apart and become useless after a couple of months. When I saw this one was aimed at children aged 6 and below I had my doubts but thankfully these doubts vanished once I inspected the glove for the first time. My kid has had it for five weeks now and plays with it most nights but it’s not showing any signs of wear and tear at all. In fact it still looks as good as it did on the day it arrived.
2) Good Fit:-Another great plus point of the Mizuno Prospect GPP901 Youth Baseball Glove is that it fits my kid’s hand perfectly. I’ve found that a lot of baseball gloves aimed at young children are never small enough and then this has a negative impact on my kid’s ability to catch the ball. With this glove he’s never been happier and his catching and confidence have improved no end.
1) Stiff:- Overall I really liked the Mizuno Prospect GPP901 Youth Baseball Glove. The only small criticism I had is that it’s a little stiff and difficult to close for very young children. I have two boys – a 5 year old and a 3 year old. I bought this glove for the 5 year old and he can close it no problems. However, my 3 year old has tried it a couple of times and can’t really close the glove.
I was really impressed with the quality of the materials used in the Mizuno Prospect GPP901 Youth Baseball Glove and I can see my kid outgrowing it rather than wearing it out which is the way it should be. Functionally, it does everything it needs to and my kid tells me this is the best baseball glove he’s ever had. If you’ve got really young children (3 or below) I would recommend looking around for baseball gloves that are a bit easier to close but if your kid is between 4 years and 6 years old and loves baseball then I recommend you get them this glove.
