My daughter is 8 1/2 years old. She is the 1st baseman for her all star softball team. They play with 11 inch balls, would this glove be a good fit for her and be okay for that size softball?
The Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt is designed for baseball. However, it does have a deep pocket and could be used for 11" softballs. Keep in mind we have a 100 day warranty on all of our gloves. If you are not completely satisfied you may return it for a full an exchange or full refund, even if it has been used.
Would this glove be too big for a 7 year old who is 4'2" and about 55 lbs?
At 11.50", the Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt would be a good choice for a 7 year old. The following link is to our Glove Coach which helps with sizing information http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-coach/
My son is 11 years old. Would this glove be to small for him? He plays travel ball, lots of games is it durable enough? His regular 3rd base is 11 1/2'' but it's not youth. Can you recommend a first base glove that's easy to break in and not youth size?
The Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt would be a good option for an 11 year old first baseman, and I've talked to many customers who have 10 or 11 year olds who love this model. It also features above average durability for a youth mitt and will be hard to beat compared to other options under $100. There are no 11.5" adult first base mitts on the market, but if you want a recommendation for an adult first base mitt that is easy to break-in, the Wilson Game Ready Softfit Series: A0800BB2800 would be a good option in a 12" model.
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!
