Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt
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.

Is this a good glove for a 9 year old turning 10 in December? Is it too small? What other gloves comparable to this one would be recommended?
This Akadema Prodigy Series (AHC94-12) Youth First Base Mitt would be a great option for a Youth first baseman. The 11.50" pattern size would be a great choice for that age. We really only carry 3 options in this size, but the Mizuno Prospect would be a great option to consider too: http://goo.gl/gmJEvG.
Is there any nylon in the interior of this glove, or is it completely leather inside and out (other than the labeling)?
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AHC94-12) features an all leather shell, including the pocket and webbing. There will be more synthetic materials on the interior of the glove to provide padding and support.
I have a 10 yr old turning 11 in May. Over 5'0" and large hands for his age. Is there a size range to jump to an adult glove?
We recommend a youth glove for his age and size. The Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt is a great option for him. Most players move to an adult glove at age 12 to 13, depending on the size of the player.
