My son catches and currently has a rookie/starter glove. He is 11 @ 90 lbs. He complains with his current glove that his thumb gets sore, does this glove or another glove have extra protection in the thumb area?
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12) features new stress wedge technology. This provides extra padding on a players index finger and thumb.
I am in travel ball. I play very often, almost every day. I am 10, 5', and 110 pounds. I usually do not play catcher much, but now that Little League is starting, I will be playing it more and more. If this is not a good glove for me, what is?
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12) is a great option for your age. It will be easy to break-in and a durable glove.
My son is 8 turning 9 (April) with an above average build (100-105 lbs); however, he has average sized hands for his age. Would you recommend the Akadema AGC98 or would you recommend dropping down to the Akadema ADS-90?
We recommend the Akadema Rookie Series (ADS90-12) for his size. A player with larger hands could use the Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12).
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!
