Difference between softball gloves and baseball gloves?

Construction is basically the same - softball gloves are just larger than baseball gloves due to fact that softballs are bigger. Softball gloves tend to be 13" and bigger, and baseball gloves are less than 13". If you play both softball and baseball and want to stick with just one glove, then buy a softball glove. *********************** From The Coach That's right - Construction and leather are the same (for respective models). But Slowpitch have bigger pockets to accommodate 12" softballs are are typically designed for men's larger hands and fingers. For Girls/Women's Fastpitch Softball Gloves, good gloves have slender fingerstalls to accommodate smaller finger and palms of girls and women. And they come in 11" to 13.5" sizes.
