Would you recommend steaming this glove to reduce break-in time?
No. we do not recommend steaming as a method of break-in for any of the gloves that we sell because it can damage the leather and reduce its usable lifespan. A mitt like the Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12) would be better off with more traditional break-in methods.
How big is the glove?
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12) is a 32 inch pocket with a youth fit on the inside.
How is the palm padding on this mitt? I purchased a Nokona AL-3200 for my son that he now refuses to use because of the lack of protection in the palm. I really don't want to repeat this scenario.
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12) has relatively average level padding for a youth mitt but the high quality leather and stress wedge allow the pocket's leather to be more reinforced which helps protect the hand. 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.
Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Their increasing market share can be attributed to their innovative quality and professionally designed product line. Focusing on the quality, feel and small details has lifted Akadema to the next level. With a goal to provide products for all ball players, Akadema has created the new Prodigy Youth Series. Constructed from U.S. Steerhide throughout the pocket and webbing, the Prodigy Series provides ideal toughness and padding. On the back of the glove, this series features the exclusive AkademaLyte leather that decreases the overall weight. This not only allows these gloves to be more easily playable, it also significantly decreases the break-in time to the point where these gloves are virtually game-ready out of the box. With the younger player in mind, Akadema slightly narrowed the finger stalls on these gloves to provide a more snug fit. Akadema: Bring Your "A Game"! Free Shipping!
Thanks Dave, My son got his new Rawlings glove today and LOVES it! And thank you so much for being such a fabulous company to work with. Everyone was so nice, professional, and helpful. Credit was given when the price changed days after our inital order... without question. Returns were easy and no hassle. Communication was exceptional. With customer service being such a rarity these days I am suprised, relieved and very satisfied with your company. I intend to spread the word to both our house and travel teams (and hopefully it will rapidly spread throughout the leagues). Thank You,
