The Prospect Series is tailor-made to fit a young ball player's hand. Multiple technologies make it easier for younger players to close the glove, catch the ball and learn to love the game. Mizuno's patented PowerClose technology places "hinges" where players would close the glove to make squeezing the ball and making the catch as simple as can be! And the Less 2 Lacing design removes the last 2 lace loops on the Tartan Flex Web to increase flexibility along the closing axis. Inside the glove, the Prospect is designed for supreme comfort. The ButterSoft Palm Liner increases durability and feel while the MZO Lining disperses sweat and moisture away from the skin. Also, Mizuno has added a ParaShock Palm Pad to reduce all shock and sting caused by impact on the catch; taking your Youth player's confidence to new heights! The Mizuno Prospect Series Youth Black/Silver Glove: GPT1175Y1 features an 11.75 Inch Pattern, Tartan Flex Web, and a snug fit designed specifically for the Youth ballplayer.
