1st baseman's mitt

I have a question:

I have a baseball first baseman's mitt and want to upgrade. I play slow-pitch and was wondering what the difference was between a slow-pitch first baseman's mitt and a fast-pitch first baseman's mitt? Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.

(Assuming that by "fastpitch" you mean fastpitch softball, not baseball...)

There are several lines of gloves marketed as "fastpitch" models. I can't think of any that are specifically marketed as "slow pitch" gloves, but there are many refered to as "softball" models. The softball models are generally at least 13" pattern size.

Usually, when a glove is sold as a "fastpitch" model, it is aimed at the huge girl's fastpitch market. These gloves will often have more narrow finger stalls and be made to better fit the female hand. That's something you need to look at if you plan on buying a glove advertised as being for "fastpitch". The fit might be so tight you can hardly get your hand into it!

There are a few out there. Wilson has a "Men's Slowpitch Line" and Worth has the Liberty Advanced (there are both "fastpitch" "Softball" and then have the Andy Purcell sig line).

As far as firstbase mitts there are a few Vinci and Nakonas that are in the 14-15 inch range....

The Worth Liberty Advanced line is great. Durable and a fast break-in time. But I would go to a conventional fielders glove.
