The biggest I have seen is the WORTH Mayhem "BFG" glove.
It weighs in at 1.25 feet (15" for those of us who might need a calculator to work that out). Its a Big Freakin Glove and feels much larger than my Rawlings RSGXLDTB 14".
It is the only softball glove I have seen listing its size on the actual glove in feet vs inches. Nice touch. Pretty inexpensive too.
The softball glove was invented in the 1920's.
There are four different gloves in softball. An outfielder's glove is larger/longer. An infielder's glove is smaller in size. A catcher's glove is very padded and somewhat large. A first-baseman's glove is large and somewhat padded. The first baseman has the largest glove on the field.
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.
No, the glove is intended for baseball, by fielders and pitchers who want a little longer glove for scooping up balls. It can be used for softball, bit does not have a larger pocket that would make a strictly softball glove better.
Sure. A softball glove is made of the same materials that a baseball glove is made of (high grade leather). They need time to be broken in. Oiling the glove will help with this process.
The size of the glove depends on what position she plays. This buyers guide should help:http://www.hitrunscore.com/softball-glove-buyers-guide.html
