When buying a glove, you first need to determine which hand your child naturally throws with. The glove will go on the opposite hand.
Then you need to consider the size of the glove, which is based on the age of the child. If they’re 6 or under, you’re looking at 9 to 10 inch gloves. Six to 8 year olds will need 10 to 11 and a half inches. Eight to 11 year olds will wear 11 to 12 inch gloves.
