The Basics from Mizuno

The Mizuno GWW1203 is a baseball glove with a Tartan web design (closed back) and ProFlex finger inserts in a pro style pattern. It comes specially tanned in a retro leather for a soft, supple feel for durability allowing for a quicker breaking in period. In fact, it comes nearly game ready for use at either the pitcher or third base positions (editor’s note: this is true for almost all 12″ gloves). It retails at around $80

My Thoughts and Impressions

I have never owned or even used a glove with a closed web style before and I have to admit that it was a little strange at first, but I quickly got use to it (a testament to the quality of this glove). I agree with Mizuno’s claim of game ready playability as it breaks in very quickly. Where it isn’t as padded as a recently reviewed indie glove (it was heavier than other gloves I’ve used), it most definitely makes up for that by contrastingly being a very light weight glove. At the moment it is my glove of choice whether I’m playing 3B, SS, 2B or OF.

On a personal note, the last glove that I bought (which was about 26 years ago) was a Mizuno middle infielder‘s glove. I had that glove until two years ago. I have been very satisfied with both Mizuno gloves I have owned and used and I would easily recommend a Mizuno glove to someone looking for a new baseball glove!

I’d like to thank the people at Mizuno for providing Baseball Reflections with this fine glove for the purpose of this review.
