Akadema Fastpitch Series: ANF71 First Base Mitt review by Michelle
Pros: ready to use right out of the box. Fit my daughters hand perfectly. It's light weight and looks great. The glove is very well made except for the faux leather on the edges. Cons:The faux leather used on the edges does not hold up well at all. However, it does not appear to affect the golves performance. I think for $100 it should be all leather.

Akadema Fastpitch Series: ANF71 First Base Mitt review by Itsmejoe231
Pros: Very good glove for my 10 U daughter. I didn't think it would be broken-in in time for our tournament but she used it anyway. You can throw anything at her and she will snag it with this glove!! Cons:None.

Akadema Fastpitch Series: ANF71 First Base Mitt review by Abbi's Papa
Pros: My Grand daughter who is 11 really enjoys using this mitt. The quality is high and she catches anything thrown at her with it. The break in kit was a big help in getting it ready. It also improved my 15 year old slighly used glove. Cons:She has hands the size of an adult male. This glove works now. Question whether it will work if she grows much more in the hands.

Ask A Question

Would this glove be fit for pitching as well as first base?

The Akadema Fastpitch Series (ANF71 First Base Mitt) is designed specifically for first base. It is not designed for pitching.

My granddaughter is 11 and plays 5-6 grade fastpitch. She is 5'9" and has hands larger than mine (Men's Large). What would be a good choice for a first base mitt for her?

Based on her age and position, our Glove Coach recommends a 12" model. Since you mentioned that she does have larger hands the 12.50" pattern of the Akadema Fastpich Series (ANF71) may be a good size for her. Ultimately, it will depend on her preferences, however this Akadema would be a great high performance model to go with if the size is correct.

Is there any difference between a females first base glove and a males? What would you suggest for a 11 year old girl playing womens fast pitch?

A fastpitch softball first base mitt has a larger pocket to accommodate a softball, a smaller hand opening and more narrow finger stalls for a female's hand. A 12.25" or 12.5" model is recommended.

Product Description

Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Born to satisfy the needs of the competitive fastpitch player, the Akadema FastPitch Design Series 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 used 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. Akadema's latest innovation, the patent pending Funnel is sweeping across professional baseball infields everywhere! In response to the large number of professional infielders who bend the thumb and pinky fingers of their gloves outward creating a glove that remains open rather than closed in its natural state, Akadema has created the Funnel. With patent pending FleXion slit and an inverted thumb and pinky finger, the Funnel's natural state is open, allowing for the maximum fielding surface available for that hard ground ball up the middle or that two hopper in the hole! Turn two like an All-Star with Akadema's all new Funnel infielders glove! Akadema: Bring Your "A" Game! Free Shipping!

Before ordering, I had a question about a couple of gloves, and Travis provided (via email) some excellent advice. The glove is for my son's birthday, which is coming in about a week. I can't be sure that he'll like it, but Travis helped me choose a glove that met my specifications.
