Akadema Prodigy Series: AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt review by ck
Pros: Love this mitt. Bought it for my 10 year old lefty catcher and he thinks its great. It took some time to break in but we don't believe proper mitts are game ready "out of the box". Cons:

Akadema Prodigy Series: AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt review by AD
Pros: Padding, design, break in period: 9U kid catching 10U/11U pitchers. He says he loves it and it feels good. It shows as a big target. It is quick getting the ball out of glove. The break in period has gone well and fairly quick. Cons:None to mention.

Akadema Prodigy Series: AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt review by ALJK
Pros: My 10 year old son has been using this mitt for a year. He loves it. Just purchased another one because he plays year round (70 games) and has put a lot of "mileage" on it. Perfect catchers mitt for youth ball. Lightweight, fast break-in, good pocket, excellent padding, well constructed. Cons:None.

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 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.

Product Description

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!

Testimonials

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,

- Darlene, Clarence Center, NY
