My son is 14 and will be playing HS baseball in the spring. He is small for his size (5' 4" and 115 lbs). He has an older Rawlings glove that has been used for 4+ years. I want something that will last him 2-3 years and is capable of catching 70-85 mph. Would this be a good glove for him?

Yes, I think that this Akadema Precision Series Praying Mantis (APM241 Catcher's Mitt) will feature the circumference (33.00"), fitting (since you want something into which he can grow) and padding that will be needed by your player to perform well as a high school catcher handling 70-85 mph.

Product Description

The Akadema Praying Mantis Catcher's Mitt is made from Akadema's Pro Soft Leather. The Praying Mantis Series uses Pro Soft Leather that is very soft and easy to break-in. Ultimately, the Praying Mantis Series design provides the player with a more pliable glove. This allows for easier break-in. The APM241 combines the quality and softness of the Pro Soft Soft Series with the technology of the Praying Mantis design. The Akadema patent Praying Mantis is the most innovative catcher's mitt ever to hit the market, with many unique features setting it apart from the competition. With new patent "Stress Wedge" technology, located between the index finger and thumb, the Praying Mantis offers shock-absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. The Praying Mantis also offers two additional "Finger Hammocks" allowing the fingers to be firmly positioned and more secure in the glove. Additional features include the Double-sided Slim Padding allowing for increased pocket size and easier ball retention. Uniquely designed shape allows the throwing hand easier access in the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster times to second base. Akadema Professional - "On the cutting Edge of Sports Technology". Free Shipping.
