Yahoo! Sports recently published a feature story on "Gloves to consider buying for your little leaguer", in which the Mizuno Prospect GPT1175 and Prospect GPP901 Ball Gloves were included. Both of these top-selling youth models have full write-ups that highlight the various technologies, including ParaShock palm pad, V-Flex Notch, and PowerClose.
Here is what Yahoo! Sports has to say about the Mizuno Prospect Series GPT1175 Ball Glove:
"This 11.75 inch-youth baseball glove comes in a classic color combination black and brown. Perfect for ages 9-13, this glove from Mizuno, one of the leading sports brands out there, features a ParaShock palm pad, which cushions your young adult's hand from being bruised or hurt by repeated catching of a baseball.
The Prospect GPT1175 Youth Baseball Glove also features Mizuno's V-Flex Notch, which makes it easier for youngsters to catch the ball and have it stay in their glove. The glove's webbing is also closed so the ball can be hidden from the opponent's eyes-a great feature for young pitchers."
Here is what Yahoo! Sports has to say about the Mizuno Prospect Series GPP901 Ball Glove:
Speaking of training young beginners in baseball, this youth baseball glove from Mizuno is another great item that will benefit a young baseball player in his or her early years of training and discovering their love for the game of baseball. At 9 inches, this glove is perfect for young players aged 8 year old and below (some consumers even bought it for their 4-year-old kids).
It looks professional and is professionally made by Mizuno, but it also isn't too hard to break in, which can be a challenge for younger players. Similar to the Mizuno Prospect GPT1175, this glove has a ParaShock palm pad to protect a young one's palm from "shock" in repeatedly catching a baseball, as well as Mizuno V-Flex Notch, which makes it easier for young ones to catch the ball. This glove also has PowerClose technology, making it easier for young ones to close the glove once they've caught the ball. All in all, a great beginner's glove."
