My 8 year old son has small hands. Would the "narrowed finger stalls" on this glove be more snug than the Akadema AJT99, Vinci BRV1953 or Rawlings P1153? He's using a Mizuno GPP1076 right now.
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AZR95-12) will be more snug than the AJT99m BRV1953, P1153, and the GPP1076. It is ideal for a player with smaller hands.
Could or should this glove be steamed? If so, is that a service that we can purchase through you?
We do not offer steaming services, nor do we recommend steaming the Akadema Prodigy Series: (AZR95-12) Youth glove or any other glove for that matter. Steaming a glove can cause damage to the leather that can greatly reduce the durability of the product. Traditional break-in methods are all that we recommend for the break-in process. The break-in period for this youth Akadema Prodigy should be extremely short.
I have a 7 yr old. Currently plays mostly outfield, but will play infield as well. He is currently using the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1076 Youth. It seems to have a good pocket, he catches the ball well with it. It has been a good glove, but looking for an upgrade it quality and durability. Does the AZR95-12 glove have a large deep pocket for catching? How would it compare with the Mizuno Prospect?
The Akadema Prodigy Series: AZR95-12 Youth has a good size pocket. It uses a higher quality of leather than the Mizuno Prospect Series and is more durable.
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!
Customer service rep went out of her way to assist and make sure we got the glove (Rawlings Renegade 1st Base) we wanted (last one in stock) and to ensure that it was shipped in time for Christmas. She went to stockroom/warehouse while I was on the phone to be sure you had the glove, and promised to bring it to shipping to be sure it went out that day. I wish I could remember her name, but she deserves a big THANK YOU. We will definitely look to use your online service in the future because of her efforts.
