I'm going to turn 12 next month, and I play travel baseball. Is this glove a good, all-around glove?
I would recommend the Akadema Pro Soft Series: AMV218 model for anyone playing on the infield. The 11.50" pattern would suit a pitcher or infielder quite well. You could use this glove for playing outfield as well, although generally most players prefer larger patterns of 12" or more.
It says it has a medium deep pocket, would this pocket be a little too deep for a middle infielder?
No, the Akadema Pro Soft Series: AMV218 pocket is not too deep for a middle infielder. It is designed for middle infielders and is just deep enough where the ball will stay in there firmly but not too deep where it would be hard to turn double plays and get the ball out quickly.
Will this work for softball?
This Akadema Pro Soft Series (AMV218) will have an 11.5" length to it, a pocket that is more built for baseball and also an adult male fitting. That being said, I think that this mitt would still work for a 12" softball if you were wanting something with a shorter length that will allow for a quick transfer time from glove to hand (if the fit were a little big for your .hand, I would recommend tightening the wrist strap).
