X2.....A2000 is a great glove.

A2000 is what I played with (technically an A2002 since I am a lefty). My career ended 20 years ago and I still have that glove and use it all the time throwing with my son.

Correct, like many things, the A2000 line was made in the USA at one point during "the good old days". I still have one that was made in the USA, but that was right before they shipped the work elsewhere. Definitely 30 years + ago. I also have A2000 models from the post-USA days and can say that the quality was just as good. As the A2000 was always a premium glove, they seemed to use the best rawhide. I'm sure their entry level gloves got worse in quality once they were made elsewhere.From experience at a very high level of baseball, get your son the smallest glove possible. Fielding with a small glove provides the absolute best fundamentals: moving your feet, getting in front of the ball, etc. A large glove can lead to lazy/bad habits. Playing outfield would be the exception, as a big basket glove may come in handy to reach balls on the run.

He's centerfielder, running a 11.5 glove for last 3 years.... When he's pulled in to pitch, he goes to a smaller glove.

I've still got my Wilson from 1982.... I pull it out to play catch to this day

My son, High school Senior - Loves Mizuno. Also a Lefty. Mizunos for days on the bump and when in the OF. He has nice Rawlings for 1B - Nothing like having 800 bucks worth of leather before you can vote. I have a Nokona Bloodline that I am breaking in. My gamer is an old Rawlings PRO1125 "6" finger glove. It's toasted.. re-strung several times and been to the shoe cobbler for some rehab. Hate to put it away. But it's getting thinner than old underwear.

My son use the Muzuno to pitch with and the A2000 to play infield. This was a snap shot we took this summer.

Love his arm angle, but, is he throwing a nuckle ball at his age? Save that for when he can't bring the cheese anymore.
