Is this a good glove for a 9 year old turning 10 in December? Is it too small? What other gloves comparable to this one would be recommended?
This Akadema Prodigy Series (AHC94-12) Youth First Base Mitt would be a great option for a Youth first baseman. The 11.50" pattern size would be a great choice for that age. We really only carry 3 options in this size, but the Mizuno Prospect would be a great option to consider too: http://goo.gl/gmJEvG.
Is there any nylon in the interior of this glove, or is it completely leather inside and out (other than the labeling)?
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AHC94-12) features an all leather shell, including the pocket and webbing. There will be more synthetic materials on the interior of the glove to provide padding and support.
I have a 10 yr old turning 11 in May. Over 5'0" and large hands for his age. Is there a size range to jump to an adult glove?
We recommend a youth glove for his age and size. The Akadema Prodigy Series: AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt is a great option for him. Most players move to an adult glove at age 12 to 13, depending on the size of the player.
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!
