I've always thought that 16'' was closer to baseball than 12'' in my experience playing both.

Yes, you're not using a glove so on the surface it might look like 12 is more like baseball. But so many in a 12'' game can mash. Defensively, 16'' feels more like baseball. Guys hit choppers and hot shots to 3rd. Everyone in 12'' either drives the ball or at the very least hits it up the middle, rendering corner IFs useless.
