Is this a Softball Catcher's Mitt or a Baseball Catcher's Mitt? Thanks.
The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt is a Baseball Mitt. A similar Catcher's mitt but designed for Fastpitch softball is the Akadema Fastpitch Series: AEA65-12 Catcher's Mitt and that is a 34.00 inch web pattern.
Does the glove have something soft inside the mitt for the back of the hand?
Yes, this Akadema Pro Soft Series (APP240 Catcher's Mitt) will come with a soft lining on the inside of the glove for the back of the player's hand.
Recently purchased an Adidas catchers mitt for my 16 year old son; loves the feel of it. Sadly to say, after 2 games it started to show some tearing in the pocket and web. My question, is this glove very similar or equal?
It would be tough to compare the Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt to the Adidas glove your son is currently using without knowing what Adidas glove is being used. The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt is a great option for the intermediate player as this mitt will come in with an 80+% factory break-in. If catching pitchers throwing mid-80s+ this mitt might not hold us as long and could give the same issues as the Adidas model currently using.
