I like using a 13" glove when playing SS or 2B, if I am playing 3B I sometime use a 14" glove. I like the Mizuno MVP model, they are easy to break-in. It always come
back to what are you most comfortable with. Some players
believe the bigger the glove the better, I have tried
to use a 15" glove on the INF, but it seems me that I didn't have the control that I like.

I have played SS all my life and started with a 12 in glove and as I got older (wiser) increased my glove size. I am now at 14in and may move to 15 if I make it to my 70s. The challenge is the transfer of the ball from your glove. I conditioned myself to take all double play throws in the palm of my glove ( purchased a cushion to relieve the pain) or bare handed.
bottom line is you need to feel comfortable and as with any new glove need to play catch until you do.
good luck!
