Description

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. Born to satisfy the needs of the competitive fastpitch player, the Akadema Fastpitch Design Series ATS77 is handcrafted to increase your level of performance on the field. Constructed of U.S. Steerhide throughout the pocket and webbing, the back of the glove features exclusive AkademaLyte leather, decreasing the overall weight of the glove and allowing for a faster break-in period and a more manageable feel. Smaller finger stalls utilized to decrease the distance between the thumb and index finger and Akadema's Grasp Clasp adjustable wrist strap allow for increased playability for female fastpitch players.

Pros: I bought this glove for my daughter who plays 12U fastpitch. She had out grown her other Akadema glove which is still in great shape. This allows her to play infield and outfield. The wrist strap is nice so she can tighten it to where she is comfortable. I am very impressed with the quaility of gloves that Akadema makes.

Cons: It is a stiff glove to start, and takes work to break in - but after about a week of playing catch and working with it was good.

Kokomo, IN

Pros: Ready to use right out of the box, or I should say...right out of the bag (comes with a very nice bag). Daughter (12U) already has an Akadema catcher's glove that she has used for years, but was given an opportunity to play a tournament and needed a fielder's glove. Great purchase, great glove, and great service. Speedy delivery too! This site deserves more than 5 stars...

Cons: There should be more than 5 stars to choose from when rating a glove or the company!

Pros: This glove is comfortable, the inside is soft and fits my hand well. It was easy to break-in. As a pitcher, I like the pocket design. I also like the padding, I feel confident catching line-drives on the mound.

3 boys

Pros: none

Cons: I bought this glove with high hopes. After reading reviews I bought one for my 12 year old. I have 3 boys playing ball and I have played for 25 years. This has to be the worst glove I have ever purchased. Looks good at first but after break-in the ball would not stay in the glove. Every time my son would try to catch a ball it would pop out of the top of the glove. I thought it was him but I put the glove and and it did the same thing to me. I use a Nokona and now he will too. Thanks to the best place to buy gloves (this site) we are able to return it for his new Nokona.

King's Choice

Pros: Awesome glove. Meant for softball, and fastpitch softball at that. It has smaller finger stalls, so it's meant for most female players. To the parent/player who is considering buying this glove for their children to play baseball with - DON'T. Please READ the description of the glove so you can make an educated choice. This glove deserves a 5 star rating for construction quality, innovative features and great fit. Break in is easy and the glove just plain works FANTASTICALLY.

Cons: Doesn't make coffee, nor does my taxes for me.

Cons: Have had it for a year and used all the time but still hard to close. Ball does not even stay in at all! Do not waist your time or money like I did with this glove.

Pros: Intriguing look and concept design is what sold me - plus all the "Pros" in the reviews. Thought they might be onto something.

Cons: Unfortunately, this is NOT a good glove design!!! My daughter has the same problems as noted in all the poor reviews - ball pops out of the glove... It's because there is no stitching between the fingers, the pocket collapses after it gets broken in and you squeeze the glove to catch the ball. I can see this now even with my larger hands since the glove has been broken in.

Pros: Excellent glove, my 14 year old daughter loves it. She plays pitcher, shortstop and outfield. Nice and soft, relatively lightweight, durable, comfortable and made for softball.

Cons: Laces come undone easily (but that is easily remedied). She lost it (or it "walked away") recently, so now we have to buy another one!

Pros: My SS needed a new glove 2 years ago in 12 U Travel ball. We went with this glove on the design concepts that it espoused. To this day, 2 years and over 150 games later, she still only wears this glove. We have never had the issue of the ball popping out of the glove, but we rehearse proper fielding technique almost daily, ensuring she focuses on catching the ball with her finger tips, not her palm.

Cons: None that I have seen.

Pros: Easy to break in. Nice size.

Cons: My daughter wore this glove out after 1 1/2 seasons of travel ball. The leather inside where the hand is placed is coming apart. The leather ties are always coming loose. Once completely broken-in, the location where the ring and pinky finger go does not close very well. Akadema has placed a very stiff piece of leather in that section. Very disappointed to have to replace this glove after only 1 1/2 seasons.

Pros: Unique design

Cons: Looks more like it was designed for baseball. My 12 year old daughter plays 1st base and can catch pretty much anything. Like some other people said, the ball kept popping out of the pocket. It did it with me also. Pinky edge of glove never closed right around the ball either. It just folded backwards away from it. No ball control at all. Pocket way to small for 12" softball.

Pros: The manufacturer customer service

Cons: Horrible. No padding at all. Fake leather on most of the glove. Looks and feels like a $25 Walmart glove. I was so excited to get this and it took about 6 catches to know, it was a huge disappointment! Went for the All-Star Vela.

Coach Terry

Pros: Bought this identical glove for my granddaughter four years ago, almost to the day (5/1/2014), she absolutely loved the unique Reptillian style being a pitcher, playing middle infield, literally has worn it out playing high school and travel ball seasons; subsequently, the recent purchase of a second glove to replace the worn out glove! She is also a catcher and, via me, owns an Akadema catcher's glove, I find Akadema gloves to be a top quality product for a very reasonable price, relatively speaking of course!

Cons: None

Do your gloves come already broken in?
michelle
No, we do not do anything with the gloves when we get them from the manfacturer. However, some gloves are easier than others to break-in.
Bodie
Which Akadema glove do you recommend for my 13 yr old 5'5" daughter who pitches and plays the outfield?
Maria
Yes, this glove would work great for a 13 year old playing the outfield and who pitches. This glove does have a deeper pocket so that it will work for an outfielder and pitcher. This glove does have an open back so that the glove can be tightened and loosened for the player.
Brett
What is the padding like in this glove compared to Mizuno MVP series at a similar price point?
Softball Mom
Both have very good padding. It may be hard for some to tell the difference, but I would give the Mizuno MVP series a slight edge due to the ParaShock padding they use.
Brett
I am a college softball player looking for a new glove. I am a middle infielder, about 5'7" and could use some advice. I need a very durable versatile glove and I loving having a good easy pocket with good padding. Hope this is not too complicated.
Michelle
This would be a very good glove for you that is also very durable. This is going to be a great glove under $100 and has a lot of padding. It will not take very long to break in.
Brett
I have a 10 year old pitcher/2nd baseman that is starting the travel ball circuit. We need a new glove, but not sure if this one is too big for her. Suggestions?
JP
A 12.5 inch glove would probably be a little too big for a 10 year old playing 2nd base and pitching. A 12.5 inch glove like this would be better suited for 12-13 year old girls playing the outfield, or High School age girls looking for a good utility glove. For your daughter I would recommend something around 11.5 or 11.75 inches.
John
What is the difference in a fast pitch glove versus a slow pitch? My 10 year old daughter plays slow pitch softball as a center fielder/ 2nd base. She is needing a new glove, as she has out grown her size 11 Mizuno Fitch.
Jonwoos
Fast pitch gloves have smaller finger stalls than a slow pitch glove. Fast pitch gloves are designed for smaller female hands. We suggest a 11.50" to a 12.00" fastpitch glove.
Kara
My daughter is 13 and pitches. She currently has a 12 inch Louisville slugger glove and loves it. Her pitching coach used to be a rep for this company and has had high praise for this brand. When not pitching she is very fast so they like to use her in the outfield, I was thinking she needed a 12 1/2 fielders glove but what would you suggest?
Tom
We suggest a 12.00" to a 12.25" glove for her age and position.
Kara
My son is 15 yrs old, 5'11", 180 lbs. Looking for a durable utility glove he can use mostly in the infield. Could this glove work?
GeorgeBH
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series is a fastpitch glove, designed for a smaller female hand. For an infield player, we recommend a 11.50" to a 12.00" Akadema glove.
Kara
What size glove would you recommend for a 14 year old girl playing outfield, 2nd and 3rd base? She has long fingers.
outlaw
A 12.25" or 12.5" glove is most common for a 14 year old fastpitch softball utility player.
Tyler
My daughter is 13. Plays all over. 2nd, short, and a little outfield. She has a smaller frame. What size glove is recommended?
wassup
Based on her height and weight, we recommend a 11.50" fastpitch glove.
Kara
Will this glove suit me? I'm a utility player now in high school playing softball and I have a really big hand with long fingers and I want a glove around $100. Can you please help me find a glove?
ALynnn
At 12.5", the Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series: ATS77 is a good choice for a utility player at the High School level.
Tyler
My daughter is almost 14, weighs 110 lbs., and is 5'3". What size glove do you recommend?
Chuy
Much depends on the position(s) she plays. Our Glove Coach is a great tool to determine glove size: http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-coach/
Tyler
My daughter is 9 and plays pitcher and outfield. She currently has glove size 12.50". She is a small frame, 4' 9" in height and weighs 65 lbs. What size and type glove would be right for her?
DST
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series: ATS77 is slightly large, at 12.50". We'd recommend closer to an 11.00" for a 9 year old pitching and playing outfield. The Wilson A500 Game Soft Fastpitch Series: A0500FP11 Youth is an 11.00" model that is intended for youth hands, so it will have a smaller wrist opening and narrow finger stalls.
Katie
Is this a good glove for 16 year old who plays center field and 2nd base?
Westwind
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series: ATS77 With FREE Akadema Sunglasses would be a good choice for a utility player. It may be a little big and you may want to get a 12.25''.
Tori
Does this glove come in a non velcro option?
Gloveboy
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series: ATS77 is only available with a velcro option. The other Akadema 12.50" fastpitch gloves are also velcro.
Kara
My player is 13 years old, 5'3" and 110 lbs. She is a utility infielder and outfielder. What size glove would you recommend? I was looking at the Akadema Fastpitch Series (AJB74) or the ATS77?
D
For a player of her size and age, our glove coach would recommend the Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series (ATS77) in a 12.00 inch pattern. The ATS77 is actually a 12.50 inch pattern, so I would lean more towards the Akadema Fastpitch Series (AJB74). Most infielders prefer a 12.00 inch model, while outfielders prefer a 12.50 - 12.75 inch pattern.
Joe
My daughter is 11 and she is playing 12u travel. She is a pitcher and uses a 12 1/2 inch size glove now. She is around 5 foot 3 inches tall with a slender build. We are looking for a new glove. Is this product worth trying? I have heard good reviews.
zeek
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series (ATS77) is a great option and would work well for her at that age and position.
Patrick
I'm 16 years old and an outfielder for our jv varsity team. I'm looking for a new glove that I can break in fast and use for the next two years. Is this glove right for me?
Alyssa
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series: ATS77 would be a good option to consider for someone who plays the OF in softball and is looking for a durable glove. With the U.S. steerhide leather construction, the Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series: ATS77 will be able to hold up well for a competitive player. If you feel comfortable, would recommend going with a slightly bigger pattern such as a 12.75 inch pattern as this might be a better fit for a OF over the next 2 years.
Cameron
My daughter is 5'9", weighs 180 pounds, and plays third base, first base, and pitches. Would this be a good glove for her?
luke
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series: ATS77 is a suitable glove for the positions that your daughter plays as it has an infield pattern.
Angelique
What size is this glove?
Johnny Baseball
The Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Series (ATS77) is a 12.50" glove.
Carter
My daughter plays 14u softball and is a utility player. Is this the right glove for her?
jonny appleseed
At 14U, this Akadema Reptilian Fastpitch Glove Series (ATS77) and its 12.5" length should function well as a utility mitt for use in the infield and outfield.
Ben
My 10 year old is using a youth 12' glove, but it seems to be too small. She drops the ball. What size should we try?
clayton softball
The size of the glove mostly depends on personal preference and position mostly, and can vary from player to player. If you think it's too small, going up to a 12.5" or 13" could help.
