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".

Cons:

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.

What's the difference between the AGC98-12 and AGC98 model being sold on the Akadema website? Asked by Orlo

This Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt) will be the same mitt as the AGC 98 that is listed on Akadema's site. Both gloves are 32" in circumference and feature same quality of leather. Akadema allows us to list ours slightly lower to encourage customers to buy from our site. Ben Expert

My son is 7 going in 8. He wants to start catching. Is this a good first mitt for a beginner? Asked by JW

For a 7 or 8 year old youth player, this Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt) will be a little larger in circumference (32.00") than what we usually suggest for a 7 or 8 year old catchers (31.00"). However, the glove will have Youth fitting that should fit your player's hand well (maybe a little large starting out since he is smaller). I think that this glove would actually give him something into which he could grow with time. If you are okay getting a glove that may be a little large at the start, I would definitely consider this model. Dan Expert

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

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!
