After 2 years (a year of league and then 1st year of 10U TB), the cheap Wilson special is finally needing to be retired. We took the DD to a large sporting goods store to let her try on ALL the gloves to see what she liked and of course she liked the higher end glove, the Rawlings Liberty Advanced. Once she tried it on, she wore it around the store and only took it off to try on another then put it back on. It's a good thing she's an only child.
We found the same glove on Amazon for $70 less than the store and after saving up for the last couple of weeks, finally made the purchase. She can't wait to get it on the field. She spent and hour last night before bedtime putting conditioner on it and working on breaking it in.
It's probably a lot more glove than a 10 yo needs, but it's what she wanted and the look on her face when she opened the box made it worth it. Besides, if she takes care of it, it should last till she outgrows it.
