Average Customer Review
Just got this glove for my 8 year old, lefty. He loves it and so do I. We've conditioned it once and used it in 2 practices so far and it's breaking in great. Chris at Akadema was a great help too. This is a great place to find a quality mitt.
I think for the youth gloves a velcro strap for the wrist would be great... small wrists. Otherwise this is a 5-star glove.
We're very happy with this glove. I purchased it in black last fall for my son's 7th birthday so he could casually break it in over the winter. The break-in time was average. The quality is excellent. We knew it would be a bit big for a 7 year old (perfect probably for 8 or maybe 9 year old) but we've been VERY pleasantly surprised at how easy it is for him to handle. It's ready for spring play. Excellent choice.

My daughter is 8 1/2 years old. She is the 1st baseman for her all star softball team. They play with 11 inch balls, would this glove be a good fit for her and be okay for that size softball?

Would this glove be too big for a 7 year old who is 4'2" and about 55 lbs?
At 11.50", the Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt would be a good choice for a 7 year old. The following link is to our Glove Coach which helps with sizing information http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-coach/
My son is 11 years old. Would this glove be to small for him? He plays travel ball, lots of games is it durable enough? His regular 3rd base is 11 1/2'' but it's not youth. Can you recommend a first base glove that's easy to break in and not youth size?
The Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt would be a good option for an 11 year old first baseman, and I've talked to many customers who have 10 or 11 year olds who love this model. It also features above average durability for a youth mitt and will be hard to beat compared to other options under $100. There are no 11.5" adult first base mitts on the market, but if you want a recommendation for an adult first base mitt that is easy to break-in, the Wilson Game Ready Softfit Series: A0800BB2800 would be a good option in a 12" model.
