What Position will you be playing? Baseball Gloves come in various shapes and sizes based on the position they will be used for. An outfielder for example would choose a larger glove than those who play infield or pitcher. A first basemen has a specially designed glove that is longer with extra padding for easier catching and fielding. Catchers mitts are unique with heavy padding and only used by catchers. If you are someone that plays in many different positions then a utility glove (medium size) may be your best bet.
If you have executed proper back leg drive, then you are almost guaranteed to increase your stride speed. The faster you move your body sideways, the faster you will throw. Also, the faster the stride, the longer your stride will be. Once your foot strikes the ground you will transition into the most important aspect of the pitching mechanics: hip to shoulder separation. Hip to shoulder separation is responsible for about 80 percent of a pitchers potential velocity. At foot strike, your hips should be completely open towards home, and your upper body should still be closed. The greater the separation between the two haves, the more velocity you will be able to generate. Always use a camera when analyzing this part or any part of your mechanics. This is truly the only way to effectively improve your pitching mechanics.
