A baseball outfielder glove is usually 12 1/2 to 12 3/4 inches from the tip of the index finger to the heel of the glove. A softball outfielder glove is usually 13 1/2 to 14 inches from the tip of the index finger to the heel of the glove. Since a softball is larger than a baseball, a softball glove will be larger than a baseball glove. However, this doesn't mean that you can't use a baseball glove for playing softball. It just means that you will have less margin of error when catching the softball because of the smaller pocket a baseball glove has.

Rawlings is the most used baseball glove company in the pros and probably the most common brand glove in the U.S.
Rawlings did not invent the baseball glove. George A. Rawlings, invented improvements in the baseball glove.In an application, patented on September 8, 1885 Rawlings proposed the use of padding in the fingers, thumb, and the palm of the gloves for the "prevention of the bruising of the hands when catching the ball." The felt/rubber combination in the padding provided for increased flexibility and thus improved protection from bruising. (I will include a picture of the patent below) George and Alfred Rawlings opened a retail sporting goods store in 1887
