Finding a left handed softball glove can be tough – you’re not sure which is sized for youth players, and which are going to hold up over time. And if the player is just starting (or still growing), you may not need the highest quality softball glove. We’ve assembled a list of lefty softball gloves that fit every need for players young and old.
Mizuno Finch Prospect Softball Glove
Similar to Mizuno’s baseball prospect glove model, this softball glove for left handers features the PowerClose design, allowing new players to make better catches. This feature, along with the small size (9″) makes for a great youth glove, as it trains the player to catch the ball in the correct part of the pocket. This will fit girls aged 4 – 8 years old, and should last multiple seasons as their first youth softball glove.
Available sizes: 9″
Price: $44 – 48
Easton Natural Elite Fastpitch Series Softball Glove
Easton brings the “old school” style back with the Natural Elite softball glove here. Other than the rich-colored, comfortable leather material, this left hand throw fastpitch glove features a nice deep pocket – perfect for most positions. What makes this glove fit better than most is the strategic elastic material sections near the palm, as well as the quick-binding strap. This glove is comfortable out of the box, but breaks in to become extra soft and comfortable.
Available sizes: 11″, 11.5″
Price: $35 – 42
Franklin Fastpitch Lightweight Softball Glove
If your player is in the 8-12 age range and you’re looking for a well-priced introductory glove, you might consider this left-handed youth glove. Like most of these other gloves, it adjusts at the wrist for optimal comfort and fit, and its super light weight makes it ideal for smaller players to be more agile in the field and get the glove in the sky faster. For fastpitch, it’s a terrific choice for a left handed softball glove.
Available sizes: 12″
Price: $24 – 30
Easton Salvo Elite Slow Pitch Glove
The Salvo is an adult glove and is priced as such, however, it also boasts a handful of high quality features not found on other gloves on the list. First and foremost, we love the lock down wrist strap, which is very secure and should last years of repeated opening and closing. The leather of this glove, 365 steerhide, is remarkably soft and durable. If you’re playing a hard-hitting adult game, your hand will thank you for wearing the Salvo, as its VRS palm padding prevents soreness from strong impacts. If you can’t decide on an adult slow pitch softball mitt for left handers, look no further.
Available sizes: 13″, 13.5″
Price: $67 – 72
Mizuno Premier 14″
If you play in an adult league, and looking for a great all-around left handed softball glove, the Mizuno Premier makes for an excellent outfield/utility glove. It’s sized for an adult, and will last more than a few seasons, breaking in to be extremely comfortable.
Available sizes: 14″
Price: $62 – 70
Wilson A360 Slowpitch Glove
With a genuine leather palm and adjustable velcro wrist strap, theres a reason the Wilson A360 is one of the most common left hand throw softball gloves on the market. For how comfortable it is out of the box and during play, it’s an amazing deal of a glove around the $30 range. Don’t expect this glove to last a lifetime, but for a JV or casual player, it will serve you well.
Available sizes: 14″
Price: $32 – 36
