Glove size for outfielder with one year left in little league


My son plays outfield for his little league majors and travel team and has worn through his current 11.5 inch glove. I want to get him a decent outfielder glove but I am having trouble finding one that meets little league's 12 inch limit on glove size. His hand is between an adult small and medium already. I ordered him an 11.75 inch glove with an an outfield style web but now I am wondering if I should have ignored little league's rule and gone with and regular 12.75 inch outfielder glove. I really don't want to encourage him to ignore the rules but I also don't want to be buying another good glove in only one year.

Any opinions?

    See if you can repair the 11.5 glove for Little League or get a used one.  Get him the 12.75 glove for travel ball and beyond. My son used a 11.25 SSK Nomar because he is a middle infielder, but also used it in the outfield when he was playing U12 and U14. He is a very good shortstop, but a spectacular outfielder. He now plays high school and still uses a 11.25 for shortstop, a Wilson A2K to be precise. He borrows a teammates glove if he plays in the outfield.
