My 7 year old has been using a LS genesis 11" for the last year or so. He does good with it but it's time to get something better. I'm reading a lot of answers saying this 11" Akadema model might be too big for a 7 year old. Would this be a good replacement for the 11" LS Genesis if he's use to that size already?
This would be an excellent choice for a younger player, yes.
My son used a Vinci Youth Glove 10.75 last year and really liked it. He plays travel ball and plays second and short. He is smaller in size and is 9 years old. He liked Vinci because it was easy to close and lightweight but still good quality. We were thinking of going to a 11 inch Akadema Prodigy - how will it compare to Vinci in weight and ability to close for a smaller had child? How does the overall quality compare?
The Akadema Prodigy Series: AZR95-12 Youth would be a good fit for a 9 year old player. The leather quality and break-in time is going to be relatively similar to the Vinci glove you had.
My son is 9, but bigger for his age. Plays travel ball. Would this size work or something bigger. Plays both infield and outfield.
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AZR95-12) Youth would be a good option for your 9 year old son. It is a good size for what you are looking for.
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. Steer hide 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!
