Would this glove fit a 8-10 yr old playing fast pitch softball 1st base? Also which glove is appropriate for infield as well for short stop?
The Akadema Fastpitch Series: ANF71 First Base Mitt features a 12.50 inch pattern. For a player between the ages of 8-10 this may be a little big (recommended length would be 12.25 inches). For infield purposes, a glove from 11.50-11.75 inches would work best. At this time, the closest option within the Akadema lineup would be the Akadema Fastpitch Series: AJB74.
My daughter is 16, 5'4" and average size hands. What size first baseman glove does she need?
Based on your daughter's size we advise going with the Akadema Fastpitch Series: ANF71 First Base Mitt.
My daughter loves her Akadema first base mitt. She's had it for 4 years and it's ripped and worn down now. She wants me to order another Akadema mitt and we are wondering if the 12 1/2" is large enough. She is 16 years old and playing 18's?
This Akadema Fastpitch Series (ANF71 First Base Mitt) will come with a 12.5" length and for a 16 year old firstbase lady, I think that length will work just fine for her. However, all gloves from JustBallGloves come with a 100 day guarantee. You would be able to get this glove and use it and if you decided to send it back under the 100 days, you would be eligible to get a full refund or exchange when we received it back.
Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Born to satisfy the needs of the competitive fastpitch player, the Akadema FastPitch Design Series is handcrafted to increase your level of performance on the field. Constructed of U.S. Steerhide throughout the pocket and webbing, the back of the glove features exclusive AkademaLyte leather, decreasing the overall weight of the glove and allowing for a faster break-in period and a more flexible feel. Smaller finger stalls used to minimize the distance between the thumb and index finger and Akadema's Grasp Clasp adjustable wrist strap allow for increased playability for female fastpitch players. Akadema's latest innovation, the patent pending Funnel is sweeping across professional baseball infields everywhere! In response to the significant number of professional infielders who bend the thumb and pinky fingers of their gloves outward creating a glove that remains open rather than closed in its natural state, Akadema has created the Funnel. With patent pending FleXion slit and an inverted thumb and pinky finger, the Funnel's natural state is open, allowing for the maximum fielding surface available for that hard ground ball up the middle or that two-hopper in the hole! Turn two like an All-Star with Akadema's all new Funnel infielders glove! Akadema: Bring Your "A" Game!
