Pros: great glove! My six year old used it in a tournament the day after it came in the mail. he was a Butterfield ground balls just fine it was just blind drives that he had a problem with, dropped one but that was it.

Cons: none

Pros: The quality of this glove superb. The leather used is just about as good as any of the $200+ gloves on the market, but in a price range that is affordable for everyone. The leather is firm, but workable to build a good deep pocket. This glove has been great for my 6 year old!

Cons: Break-in time is a little longer than expected. Not really a con considering the quality of leather that is used. Break-in time should be expected.

Pros: Seems to break in pretty easy.

Cons: The leather the glove is made with is not worth the money. The pinky portion of the glove is extremely stiff and provides for an awkward close. The glove does not appear it will hold up very long.

Does this glove have a leather back or a mesh back? Look like in picture to have a leather back but have read its mesh. Asked by Flagg

The Akadema Rookie Series: AJP96 Youth features a lightweight leather back. Logan Expert

My son is playing shortstop in 7U coach pitch. He's currently using a 10.75" Mizuno Prospect Series. I'm looking for something that will be an improvement to his game over that. I've been looking at this one and the Vinci Pro Custom Pro Junior Series: BRV1957 Youth. I can't determine any significant differences other than the I-web and T-web designs and the $5 difference. Is there much of a difference in the two? Would one be better than the other for shortstop? Asked by Jim

The Akadema Rookie Series (AJP96 Youth) and the Mizuno Prospect Series are both great gloves and very popular. The Akadema Rookie Series and the Vinci Pro Custom Pro Junior Series will be more similar in leather material and break-in time. Both would be fine for Shortstop at their size. I-webs seem to be more popular for middle infielder's currently. Brandon Expert

Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Akadema's ownership attributes an increasing market share to their innovative quality professional product line in contrast to mass-produced products that have little to do with quality, feel, or design that raise the level of play. Akadema's products are manufactured for professional players but are available for semi pro, college, high school and serious youth players. Made for young players, the Rookie Series (Ages 6-9) was created for younger players who are serious about baseball and want to play like their favorite stars. Akadema uses full grain soft leather in the construction for easy break-in and comfort. Right or Left hand throw. Akadema: Bring Your "A" Game! Free Shipping!

You seem to have plenty of good quality gloves in stock. Most gloves that I had interest in were not stocked by local retailers. I actually took a chance on ordering the glove I thought I wanted sight unseen. Good job folks I'll for sure recommend you to my fellow players.
