Pros: Love this mitt. Bought it for my 10 year old lefty catcher and he thinks its great. It took some time to break in but we don't believe proper mitts are game ready "out of the box".

Pros: Padding, design, break in period: 9U kid catching 10U/11U pitchers. He says he loves it and it feels good. It shows as a big target. It is quick getting the ball out of glove. The break in period has gone well and fairly quick.

Cons: None to mention.

I'm 12 years old. I don't how big glove do I need. What do you recommend? Asked by sch

For a 12 year old catcher, we would make a general recommendation of getting a mitt in the 32.00" circumference. This Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt) will have a 32.00" circumference on it, but it will also come with a a youth fitting to it. That youth fitting may be a little too small. I might recommend looking to a 32.00" or 32.5" circumference mitt that has more of an adult fitting. Ben Expert

My son is 10 and looking for a new glove that is reliable and won't break the bank. I am looking at this glove and the Rawlings (GCM32PTB). Can you give me the pros/cons of this Akadema and the Rawlings in terms of break-in time as well as padding? Also, which of these is the heavier glove? Asked by JC

Both this Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt) and the Rawlings (GCM32PTB) will be pretty ready for use right out of the box. Only a short break-in would be needed for either glove. In regard to padding, both gloves will have the sufficient amount to keep the palm of a ten year old player comfortable. Unfortunately, I was not able to weigh both gloves, but in my opinion, neither will posses a weight that will make the glove uncomfortable for use. Ben Expert

Comparing the Akadema AGC98-12 and All Star CM1200BT which forms a deeper pocket easiest and which breaks in quickest without steaming the glove? We are buying a new glove as a replacement for an Easton Mako 31 inch youth glove that has not boxed or formed any type of pocket at all during break in and is getting donated. Asked by TK

Both the Akadema Prodigy Series: AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt and the All Star Young Pro Series: CM1200BT Youth Catcher's Mitt are not going to be too difficult to break in. With that being said of the two gloves I would say that the Akadema Prodigy Series: AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt was the easier to break in of the two. Both options will form a deep pocket. Carter Expert

Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Their increasing market share can be attributed to their innovative quality and professionally designed product line. Focusing on the quality, feel, and small details has lifted Akadema to the next level. With a goal to provide products for all ball players, Akadema has created the new Prodigy Youth Series. Constructed from U.S. Steerhide throughout the pocket and webbing, the Prodigy Series provides ideal toughness and padding. On the back of the glove, this series features the exclusive AkademaLyte leather that decreases the overall weight. This not only allows these gloves to be more easily playable, it also significantly decreases the break-in time to the point where these gloves are virtually game-ready out of the box. With the younger player in mind, Akadema slightly narrowed the finger stalls on these gloves to provide a more snug fit. Akadema: Bring Your "A Game"! Free Shipping!
