An outfielders glove looks like an infielders except the fingers are longer. In the infield you need to bend over and grab the ball and get it out quickly. Less glove makes it easier. In the outflied you are more concerned about catching the ball, a bigger glove makes this easier. If you are not going to be on an organized team, just go to a sporting goods store and try them on to see what feels best.
