I use a 1b glove. I just feel more comfortable with it. Go with whatever works for you.

I wear one to pitch. Bigger glove, more padding. I love it. Seems to guide the ball right into the pocket.

This is the best selling point of a 1B mitt. Scooping with a 1B mitt compared to a regular glove is night and day difference.

got my glove its a 13inch kelley not real familiar with this brand name got it in a trade but have fell in love with it very high quality leather and about the same price as a higher end rawling or nakona but the usability of the 1B mitt style is the best decision I have ever made thanks for the advice!!!
