Players should take a good look at what size glove they choose depending on their position and their preferences. Sizing can get tricky when choosing a 1st basemen's mitt because each player has their own preferences. Generally, the smaller the glove the better is is for fielding grounders and making quick transfers & the bigger the glove the better it is for making picks off the dirt. The most common size for a 1st basemen's glove is 12.75", however, players should take into account their personal skills and preferences when choosing the size of their mitt.
