Yeah guys spill the beans! I use a 14 inch glove all around. Its a cheapy Wilson Elite but it gets the job done. I mostly play infield and other players tell me they prefer a smaller glove for those positions. Is there a big difference for the style of play? I really like my glove and make a lot of plays with it, however I often wonder sometimes why I have high end bats but not a high end glove. So I guess my sub question is, does a high end glove account for increased performance? If so, how? I just started looking into these nicer gloves and all I can really point out is that there is reduced sting. Don't get me wrong they do look rather nice as well, the style is flashy.

If you're curious try a 13 inch mit and see how you like it then you have a choice. I pitch and I use 14 inch mit all the way. Every inch counts to grab 1 of those wide screamers

Infield I have always used a smaller glove just for the fact of quicker transfer.

Exactly one of my biggest reasons for using the 14". Laser beams are ripped at short stop sometimes away from my glove side. So a quick snap of the hips help me grab a few of those rockets. Im sure the extra length helps too!

I also (personal opinion) believe that the small mit to get a ball out of your glove syndrome is more attributed to baseball than softball. A 12 inch softball is twice as big as a baseball I don't think anybody would have a problem getting it out of there mit any faster myself. Imo tho. But then again I am just a measly pitcher.

You may be right but coming from baseball up until a couple years ago I am still baseball minded. I also prefer my infield glove to be much softer or well broke in better. My outfield glove I try to keep more firm. There are many personal preferences when it comes to gloves I believe.

So all in all nobody has anything to say about paying top dollar for gloves?

I don't think the more money you spend the more balls you'll catch would be a true statement lol. What's most important is comfortablity and feel. But it just happens that sometimes that mit that does feel that way cost 200 dollars
